Stained Floor

There are some things in life you should try at least once, just to prove to yourself you can do it, or to prove to yourself that it is soooo worth it to pay someone else to do it. Sanding and staining a wood floor is definitely something I am glad I tried once . . . yeah, I don't need to prove anything else to myself. I am too old and too heavy to be on my knees sanding and staining. I anticipate a lot of soreness in my near future. If the floor doesn't do it to me, helping a friend move tomorrow surely will. Why do I do this to myself? Anyway, the floor is finally done. I just have to wait for it to dry before I can get back in there to touch up the baseboards that I hit with the sander and put the room back together. "sigh"
