May I have your attention, please?
I AM OFFICIALLY A HOME OWNER!!!
(Well, more like a home-payer-off-er...)
This is crazy. We're so excited. We've spent lots of time in our new house already-- painting and tearing up carpets and making the place shiny and new.
(Side note to all you single ladies: Having a painting contractor for a husband is quite handy. You should try to find yourselves a nice painting contractor and settle down with him. Trust me. You'll thank me later. *end side note*)
Chris is working so hard on the place and doing a great job. (Oh, and watching my husband work? sexy.) Did I say that outloud just now?
We will keep you updated by posting "before" and "after" pictures as the work progresses so you can see the transformations.
I've started packing.
All of my kick-knacky things are in boxes and the only other hassles will be clothing and dishes. I'm thinking of just throwing 1/2 of my clothes into the moving truck, and then throwing all my dishes in on top of that, and then throwing the other 1/2 of my clothes on top of that. See? Padding! For the dishes! I'm a genius. (who just had to spell-check for how to spell the word "genius".)
Anywho- thanks for all the encouragement and support while we were going through the process of finding a house. You all were right: It all works out for the best. Thank goodness God knows what He's doing... otherwise we would have ended up in a leftwards-leaning, semi-crumbly old treehouse with a south-bound foundation and a lack of functional appliances.
