And of course there's no such thing as drywall in Luxembourg. All walls are solid concrete. We borrowed a special concrete drill from a super-nice couple at church, and the thing is a beast. It's not easy (especially drilling for the light fixtures), but Pete's been doing an awesome job and he's saving us a lot of money by doing it all himself. It feels like we'll never finish, but we're making progress, a little (or a lot) each evening when he gets home from work and this weekend. Our neighbors must be thrilled.

I think I'm going to keep pictures of our "finished" apartment to a minimum on the blog. Maybe it's silly, but I'd like to keep it a bit of a mystery. If people come visit, I want things to seem fresh and not like they've seen everything. Anyway, as I said, maybe it's silly, but it's my blog, so there.
But if you're really curious, just run to your local Ikea, look at all the cheapest rugs and light fixtures, know that my favorite color is red, and you'll get the gist.
