Last night was productive inspite of the rain. After we closed the shop at 5, we headed to Lowe's with the trailer to get all our supplies.
I wonder how long we stood back at the laminate flooring trying to decide which was the better purchase? We knew which color type we wanted, but the price varies alot by quality-- supposedly.
The better quality had a photo of a large dog in the center of it; with the claim that it's 30 percent more scratch resistant. We him,... hawed,.... and scratched our heads until all our backs ached from standing still in one spot, much too long.
Then Trent did something that changed our decision completely.
He thought to do a scratch test on the two samples that we were torn between. One was the higher grade with the 30 percent scratch claim; thee other was alot less expensive but looked almost identical.
He took a set of keys and scratched super hard ..... trying to gouge them up. Yall are not going to believe this but the one with the claim that it was so much better looked horrible when he did that, and the cheaper one held up through his torture test without a scratch! More expensive is not always better quality that's for sure!
We loaded everything up, and covered it with a brand new tarp. We stacked all the new laminate in the back seat in the cab of the truck though to make certain it couldn't get wet. We were quite a load, but still managed to drive up the street and parked next to Starbucks to make one last, difficult decision. "Hello grande, gingerbread latte. I haven't seen you since last Christmas!"
I'm so grateful that everything is coming together little by little.
This morning when I first opened my eyes, I saw all the furniture temporarily stacked around my side of the bed. Then I remembered what a mess we've put our house in with Thanksgiving just 5 days away. But it's okay; because thanks giving is every day. We have so much for which we're thankful. Thank you my Lord. I just wanna thank you.
When I got up and poured my morning coffee, I used my Momma's cup.... and smiled.
