A different kind of productivity

Today was one of those days where I wanted to be doing stuff, not sitting at a computer writing. It makes for a very frustrating day when you are trying to be productive, let me tell you. On the other hand, I got a ton of errands done, and Craig and I took the next step in getting new flooring. We are sick of the carpet we have, not to mention that it's been pretty trashed by the pets, so we're getting hardwood floors put in. We're starting with the family room, then we'll get the formal front room done next. After that, probably next year so we can spread the cost out, we'll get the hall and media room done upstairs.

Anyway, we went to the store we want to use and spent half an hour discussing options with one of the owners. She sent us home with six samples of what we liked best, so we can see what they look like in the rooms, in varying light, against the furniture, etc. We both knew almost from the start which one we liked best. It was Alicia's favorite, too. A glossy medium hickory with a heavy grain in random widths/lengths. It really does look the best, but Craig and I figured out the reason we both love it so much is that it reminds us of the hardwood floors we had in our apartment when we lived in Pennsylvania before getting married. I was a little amused when I realized we'd both made the connection independently of the other.

I managed to get my flight in May to Atlanta booked as well. Six days away, where I can geek out about writing and writers. God, I love going to RT. Next year, it's in Reno, so I'll be able to drive it. Plus, I might actually *finally* get to see manoah then, too.

Oh, and we went to see Beauty and the Beast last night. Visually stunning, and I'm absolutely in love with the ear cuff she wore with the yellow dress. Of course, Disney hasn't done a thing about making them for consumers, so I'm going to have to find something similar on Etsy.

Alicia is gone in the morning for LA for the next four days and Craig has to go into the office, so I'm on my own until the other kids get home from school. Fingers crossed I feel more like writing. :P
