"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

cHeCkErs ANyONe?

well I am going to continue to blog...long story...and too long to bore any once again. Thanks for the kind words you all left in the comments.

Remember how I have described my home as a humble...............humble place. Well the carpeting was residual of the Jimmy Hoff*a murder I am sure. I spent the first three months ripping out these horrific things and then scrubbing down the sub-floor. {We have not budgeted for flooring...we do see real wood planks in the future...slow and steady.} Oops back to the project. When we bought the property I bought 3-five gallons of paint in my favorite three colors...and so I used the color that I have painted the outside on the sub-floor. It solved the problem but I still thought it needed more.

So here is the floor in the dining room before I painted the sub-floor...
Sick, gross, and disgusting...who spills so much stuff without blotting to clean up? I struggled with this as I wanted something to cover this. I first covered it with a RID-X paint. Then I painted it...and it looked like I painted the sub-floor.

Two nights ago I dreamed I painted it...this way:

So I did...on my Anniversary.
I gave us a new dining room floor.
My sweet blind kitty is just checking out the digs. I will have to by something to seal in...so for now - just think it is shiny...(oh and ignore the footprint left by any one of my sons(oldest home too) or Bill!!!!!)
