Two Down, Two to Go

Last night B and I finished scraping off all the wallpaper in my bedroom. I started it on Friday night and it was so much easier than I thought it would be! I was comparing it to the first bedroom we did, which had that one layer that had been painted over, so it was pretty tough going. If I had known how easy it was, I would have started in on it much sooner. But it's done now and the remaining glue just needs to be scraped and scrubbed off. Then I can prime and paint and move my bed out of the living room.

So, yesterday and today are the coldest days of the year so far--around 25 degrees. And what happens? I run out of heating oil for the house. It was and is freezing in there. I left for work early so I could be in a heated environment. Luckily, more oil is going to be delivered today!

Snow Day

Here's what the house looked like last night after the New Year's Day surprise snowstorm. Unfortunately, most the of the snow melted away by this afternoon. But we're in for some more storms this weekend! This is the first major snow we've had since 1992-93.
