But on the other hand, it probably all got finished quicker than it would have if I hadn't had company coming. There probably wouldn't be pictures on the wall, trim on the doors, curtains up. It would probably have the bare necessities (the TV and chairs) and have been left. Once you start living in a space, you're not as compelled to get it done because you have to move things out or around to finish it.
I have things that have been left incomplete and still haven't been finished years later. Before I took the wallpaper down in my room, I had one section of wall that was left with drywall mud on it. We had moved our closet to a different wall of our bedroom and there was wallpaper up on the wall it was perpendicular to. We had spare wallpaper, but never fixed the wall. My husband has never installed the handle on the pocket door nor put the trim between the bathroom floor and our bedroom floor. It's probably never happened because my bedroom is a room that wouldn't cause me to not have company, since I don't bring company into my bedroom (okay, I showed everyone the paint job I did last year, but we didn't hang out and drink coffee in there.)
Usually, it's the little things that don't get finished; hanging pictures, putting on floor trim, curtains. I'm particularly proud of this newly remodeled family room, because it's the first time everything has been completed before we started using the room.
I guess it's just the principle of the thing.
And to comment on my bunco "friend's" comment from last Friday: it's okay, I haven't made almond roca yet anyway, that's why I didn't come. It's the principle of the thing.
