Remember when the Heavens opened up and the world rejoiced because we finally completed the stairs?
Lookin’ good, right?
Like me from far away, everything is kinda looking alright. But when you get up close? Everything IS NOT LOOKING ALRIGHT.
For example, this huge hole in the caulking:
I’m to blame because the handyman caulked in a shred of blue carpet in his haste to get home. I was not having that so I carved it out, leaving a large gaping hole for bugs and things to snuggle in. Awesome, huh?
The caulking in the seams was also lacking in a few places. Can you see it?
That swimsuit! It makes me weak!
Anyway, you’ll never believe this but here they are finished:
Here is where my husband and I differ. This is a project he would have never wasted his time on. From far away, it looks fine! On the other hand, the doors to the laundry nook are off and propped up in the den, the office is disaster, the bathroom is half painted, etc! I could be making a much bigger impact. But, my spare time is sporadic and comes in very small chunks. The stairs bugged me and it was a project I felt like I could take on in small steps.
Ending with a pun is so clever, isn’t it?
