The Eagle

Have you ever taken one of those personality tests? The last one I did at work was the D.I.S.C. test. Upon completion, it compares you to birds. I just so happen to be an eagle. Eagles like to get it done. They like to have lists and like to direct towards to the best way of completion. They can sometimes be abrupt and stern. Oh I don’t know…….”wow Charma, we never have to wonder what you are thinking,”

When the house renovations began, the EAGLE was in full form. Lists, demanding, get this done, get that done. The Eagle is tired and will not be flying anytime soon. I want to be a pigeon or whatever bird hides their head in the sand.

Staining has been on my agenda. Bedroom floors, mudroom floors, stairs, banisters, etc. Here is a picture of our Master Bedroom floors completed. Two coats of stain and three coats of polyurethane. And yes you see dusty footprints. Thank goodness the floor was dry.

These are the handrails and banisters for both staircases. They are all sanded, 2 coats of stain, sanded again and 3 coats of polyurethane.

Then all the stair treads are sanded, stained and polyurethaned. This is the main staircase. Naked girls room (NGR) has it’s own set of stairs.

And don’t forget the spindles. They were sanded and painted too. You don’t actually think that’s all do you? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


Naked girls room (NGR) floor was sanded and primed. I have plans for this little room.

Most things have gone pretty much according to plan.

We were hoping to move in this weekend, but the AC company had other plans.

I sanded and stained the Apartment kitchen. However when the polyurethane went on, it decided to turn a milky white. Start over……..

Hoping, fingers and toes crossed that we will get our CO this coming week and be moving in next weekend. It would be super helpful if we could work around the clock until the wedding. No sarcasm at all.


The girl that doesn’t want to be an Eagle today. I think maybe a parakeet with an attitude.
