Homeownership: Day 7

Again, no photos because I forgot to take my camera, but I wanted to update specifically to thank Rebecca and Jeremy for all of their hard work today in our beautiful home. I am so excited about all of the work we got done today!

I spent the morning with the girls (G, G and D). We went over to the house to water the grass, played charades in an empty room while we were there, ran a bunch of errands and went back to Meme and Papa's for lunch. I ran out to Home Depot to meet Papa and get a couple of gallons of paint for the dining room and kitchen, and then back to the house.

Drew got a quote today for garage doors. Looks like we might have to sell our souls to make that happen, but the quote at least gives us something to save up for. It is going to be expensive!! Looks like the bikes and lawn equipment might be finding a home in the laundry room for a while.

Jeremy and Drew got all of the marble removed from the bathroom, but sadly, it did not all make it out in sheets like we had hoped. I am just so glad to have that part of the project finished. Now we just have to get the bathtub out, which looks like it might be more of a trial than we were expecting. Apparently, the previous owner put in the toilet AFTER the bath tub was in, and now Drew is going to have to saw off part of a board to get the tub to go sideways so we can get it out of the door. Right now, if you have to go to the restroom, you have to sit sideways, so, I hope it gets out of there soon!

Rebecca and I got the dining room 1st coat of paint completed today. It is a beautiful green color called Boston Fern. I think it will go nicely with my dining room table and with the other colors we have chosen in the house.

It is so nice to walk in the door and see fresh paint in such beautiful colors! I should take a picture of what it looks like when I walk in the door.

I met another neighbor today. I think her name was Joanna, but I am so bad at remembering people's names the first time. She started telling me about how stupid her dog is (Em, it is a really cute pug!), and then about how her son is in the hospital because he had a stroke, and another one of her son's died 4 years ago. All in all, it was a very depressing conversation, but she is old and drives a cool car, so, all is forgiven.

Well, I am off to shower and watch some tv on dvd... perhaps some Bionic Woman or CSI. More tomorrow!
