Very dry post for you.  Maybe this is a reflection of your realization ?  How do you feel about long-term relationships ?  What's the longest you have been in/longest you can see yourself in ?

I'm Catholic so we mate for life.

I was with my previous sweetie for about 5 years. And the one before that for also about 5 years. And my special guy for also about 5 years. (my relationships seem to have a predictable expiry date. hmm.)

Sometimes when I'm with her, I feel like things are good and I'd be okay if they stay like this.  Other times I find myself wondering if this is really what I want, or if I am "settling" or that sort of thing. And when I'm not with her I often find myself thinking about how much I miss Tanya or Karlene. And that leaves me wondering.  Maybe I'm just going through the motions. Maybe my heart isn't really in this.

The problem with this format of toxic relationship is that the good parts are SO good that they can seem to outweigh the very very bad parts.  :( Stay away JMT.

Everything but the bedrooms and downstairs laundry room. 

Kitchen is completely gutted.  Will have new floors, ceilings , lighting...  moving fridge, new cabinets...  much more counter space....   living room - new floors, ceilings, lighting...   hallways - new floors, ceilings and lighting. 

Itíll be great when itís done.  Itís a modest sized house....  so this will make a big difference, especially in the kitchen.

Wow, You are going whole hog.  We had a kitchen and a  couple of bathrooms redone as well as a fireplace refaced a couple of years ago and that seemed like it took forever. 
Worth it though.
