The curtains are back up, the place where I stepped to attach the curtain rod is repainted, the burly workmen are gone, and most of the dust is vacuumed. Finally. The only issue is that they left without reattaching the lower curtain rod (just out of reach). The upper drapes are hung kinda nastily, but better than none.
I hate to think about what anyone going through a kitchen or bathroom renovation has to go through. Anyways. It's looking good, and there's a whole wall knocked off of my fathers (the painter) schedule for next fall.
Got a bitchen new step ladder as well. Ah, something else to store until I get a new house. Well, it will probably be useful during the aforementioned painting.
