Has it really been a month? Wow time flies when you are moving. I hope to post pictures of the new house soon, but here is a quick update. We are getting in slowly but surely. There is still a lot to do and we are putting of some things such as furnishings until spring when we can pay cash for them. But the main stuff that needed to be done before we could move is done. We have new floors, new texture, new paint, new base boards. The crown molding is up, but we still have to caulk and putty and sand and paint (not the whole thing, just the nail holes. We have also discovered a few surprises. The cable line had been cut and so we had to drill a new hole in the house to get cable and internet. The oven will not open for the life of us, but we are pretty sure that is in the home warranty. The telephone lines to the house had been cut as well, so they had to run a new cord which they can't bury till spring and so I have a nice black cord running through my back yard. I tried to contact the previous owners about these things, but wouldn't you know that they won't return my calls. Hmm sounds like they might have known about these things and didn't disclose them. Oh well. We love that we have a place and we are making it our own. The kids love having their own rooms and I love being able to do whatever I want and letting the kids run out back and play if they want and not have to worry about anyone else, if you know what I mean! The freedom is amazing and for the first time in months my thyroid is not wigging out, hmm maybe the doctor was right when he said stress can make it worse. Well I will write more later, gotta go unpack some more.
