I’ve taken a little, unintended break since my last post… alot has been going on including with my website and my various other projects that are revolving and evolving around me. My hubby and I are still deliberating over whether to move to a more spacious place or renovate our condo.
We also enjoyed a relaxing Memorial weekend with out-of-town friends, touring the National Mall (and my favorite – the FDR Memorial!), and visiting the Newseum. I would highly recommend the Newseum – it’s a fascinating tribute to the art and necessity of news-making, as well as an incredible tour of history through media over the ages. For some equally incredible inspiration, visit the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial on the Tidal Basin. To me, it’s short quotes from FDR during his 4 terms in office speak loudly of the values that Americans live by.
So, back to the grindstone…including house shopping. My one wish is that people stop and think before they install any type of laminate flooring – ESPECIALLY wood laminate. I’ve seen it in more than a few places since the start of our search, particularly in basements. Folks, keep your bare cement if necessary or even paint it if you can’t afford the expense of any alternatives besides laminate. Nothing makes these flooring options ok. They look cheap and are the equivalent of buying $1.99 jelly shoes.
