1,800 Plus 1

Running right along...this is where I was this morning at 1,801 miles into my transcontinental run. It is hard to believe that I am almost two years into this run!

1801.0 mi - "8.95 mi to Nickerson, Kansas", Rice County

I am just about halfway across the U.S. I think I have about 230 miles to run in order to reach the halfway point. But, and this should be of no surprise to you, that math might be incorrect. 
It was a chilly 45 degrees this morning (and, yes, the heat was turned on in our home last night!) but the sky was crystal clear and we could see the moon and the stars for most of the run. It was beautiful!

Dan and Mimmo are so close to finishing this phase of the work. 

We have a toilet! 
It is not connected but that is just a *small* detail.

The tiling around the fireplace was installed today and all that remains is for it to be grouted. 


I am so happy with how it turned out. Definitely a 100% (plus) improvement over what was there and well worth the 5 trips to Home Depots around Northern Virginia to find enough of that embossed tile!

All of the doors have been painted and re-installed, the light-switch, electrical outlet and vent covers have been replaced and the shoe molding and light fixtures are installed. We are still waiting for the vanity for the bathroom and, after the vanity, the granite counter-top/back-splash and plumbing are installed, this phase of the renovation is finished! Just in time for the movers next week! 

Have a great Wednesday!
