It is not going well...

The floor, that is.
Bob the floor sander has been in and out all day (more out than in, actually). He's having a really hard time with the floor. It seems the brilliant former owners put tiles (which I removed, one by one) over the wood floor without sealing it. That means that the tile adhesive has been absorbed into the wood. As he sands, the glue gums up his sandpaper. He has gone through a TON of sandpaper and has only completed about one fifth of the floor - which looks amazing, by the way.

This is his first day:
He arrived at 11 a.m.
He left to get a different sander.
He went to lunch.
He went to get more paper.
He left at 2:30 p.m. for an appointment.
He might be back later.

I'm discouraged.

Be patient, he will get the job done, just may take a little longer thanks to the former owners. I love wood floors! It will be beautiful!
