Last night:

I had an extremely busy day at work. I ate lunch in 15 minutes, saw people or was in groups almost non-stop, spent some emotionally draining time trying to prevent myself from crying while other people cried (which always gives me a slight headache), etc.

I was exhausted when I got home, but I knew exercise would make me feel better – and I needed to get this week of C25K underway – so I did it.

D1 of W2.

It was extremely slow – I can walk faster than some of the “jogs” – but whatever.

We went out to dinner afterward.

And then picked out flooring for our kitchen + upstairs in a span of about 10 minutes.

This is not my area of expertise – nor do I really care to spend a bunch of time researching stuff because it makes me crazy. I don’t want to totally F this up, though.

This will be our kitchen counter-top (previously chosen – we’re going with 1 1/2″ – color seems to vary slightly):


And this is what we chose last night for the kitchen floor + backsplash:


Cabinets will be white.

Walls will be brown or something? I don’t know. The kitchen is tiny, so there isn’t a lot to paint.

I mostly hate carpet, but we have no choice upstairs since that portion of the house is an attic-turned-room that someone did in the 70’s or 80’s. There’s no way to match our 60 year old hardwood and continue it up there so we’re not trying.

Likely going with this:
