From House Hunting Nightmare to Renovating Disaster!

I know I've really been slacking on my blog the past few months, but I have been so busy!  Since my last post I finished installing my wood floors, and un-installed my wood floors.  In the last week of April, I came home to a flooded house.  The toilet supply line in the master bathroom had busted......I wasn't at the house for 5 days, so I really don't know how long the water was running for.  Enough to ruin all the time and hard work I put into the house the four months prior to. 

I ended up hiring someone to re-paint the walls, to install new wood floors, and to install the tile and baseboards.  I didn't want to do it again.  And of course the drywall and insulation had to be replaced, because there was mold growth near the front door.  I moved in sometime in June/July (is it bad that I don't even remember the date?)  The house is still a work in progress, but then again what house isn't? 

My kitchen cabinets have been painted, now I just need to paint the counter-tops.  I hope they turn out as well as the cabinets did, I LOVE THEM!  I finally decided on the entertainment center, and yes, it was in the living room when the house flooded, but it survived somehow.  I will post pictures soon, I promise.  I was without a computer for a while.
