Updating Old Slanty

Once Kris got started updating Old Slanty, he didn’t stop. Soon not only did I have a dishwasher, but also…a washer and dryer! What a gem of a husband – making all my dreams come true!

Here’s before – a nice little spot at the end of the pantry.

Kris working hard – first step: tile.

Plumbed and ready for a washer and dryer!

Hugging my new washer and dryer…awwww, couldn’t be happier!  Thanks to the best husband ever!  (Before we had to walk next door and do our laundry in the basement…not a bad arrangement…without 2 kids that is.  They weren’t always easily persuaded to go and change the laundry! I never knew how lovely a washer and dryer would be – conveniently located in my own place!)

We also attempted the year before to fix our grass by re-sodding. Here’s what it looked like before:

After! We found some sod that a property was giving away, and we rented a sod-cutter and worked hard to pack it up and lay it in our yard. We were so excited - how beautiful it looked.

And then, the after after…a year later. Yep. Right back to how it looked before. Yes, I know this is the same picture, but our yard looks just like this again.  So sad. Big tree, not enough sun, dog, etc. The grass didn’t have a chance!
