My house is totaled!

Not really, just extremely messed up. I have been peeling wallpaper from the walls in the living room for weeks, a little at a time. We got the wallpaper off the dining room all at once but the kitchen was still waiting for its turn. Richard decided to take this week off work and get the job done. It took us two days but the wallpaper is now history! We chose blue paint, darker for the living room (because it gets lots of sunlight) and lighter for the kitchen, dining room and hall (because they don't get sunlight). I would also love to put new linoleum down in the kitchen and dining room if we can. I like Audrey's kitchen floor because it never looks dirty (and we still have some of that left) but Lowe's has changed the tile slightly and it won't work together. I hoped we could save some money but it looks like that's not going to happen. We still have a lot of work to do but it will be real nice when everything is back in place and is all clean!!!!
I have been feeling poorly for the last several days. My head would spin and my legs were weak, so I finally checked my blood pressure and it was low. It is better today. I can't check my blood pressure now because our machine bit the dust and I have to buy a new one. I was going to see the doctor but I know I would see the Physicians Assistant instead and then they would cancel my upcoming appointment with the doctor and I want to see him this time. I will call him if I keep on feeling bad, but I hope it is over for the time being.
