Well, I’m going home, back to the place where I belong And where your love has always been enough for me I’m not running from, no, I think you got me all wrong I don’t regret this life I chose for me But these places and these faces are getting old So I’m going home, … Continue reading →
So much to do so much to see So what’s wrong with taking the back streets You’ll never know if you don’t go You’ll never shine if you don’t glow
Hey now you’re an All Star, get your game on – go play Hey now you’re a Rock Star, get the show on – get paid And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold
Holy cow we’re in the home stretch and there is just SO MUCH going on and SO MUCH that I want to share but no time to do it. I will do my best in the next couple of weeks to give you a room by room transformation. But it might be a bit longer than that… what with the holidays and stuff.
We have a move-in date! December 27. Merry Christmas to Hubs and Me. When we’re going to pack, not exactly sure. I have a feeling the movers will be laughing at us. And i’m SURE that the kids won’t mind leaving all their brand new things in the boxes to make it an easier move. HAHA!
The carpets are getting installed on Friday and the closets next week. Woot-Woot!
Monday, monday (ba-da ba-da-da-da)
So good to me (ba-daba-da-da-da)
Monday mornin, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh monday mornin, monday mornin couldnt guarantee
That monday evenin you would still be here with me
So here’s hoping that the rain subsides and they are actually able to start on Monday as planned. We have the permit up in our window, and we have the entire house tarped and taped.
It is actually quite humorous, our house sorta looks like that scene at the end of ET when the scientists come and set up the clean room.
Scariest part of ET!!! I was terrified for weeks thinking he was in my closet.
G and I finished it up this weekend. It was a bit harder than I thought it would be but we finished and used up ALL the tarps!
The ghetto corner of the kitchen that couldn’t quite get the tarp to cover.
Kitchen fridge and oven all covered and taped up.
spare bedroom and hall linen closet
The dining room drapes… get it… drapes!
covering up the rest of the stuff in the basement
To say we’re excited really doesn’t encompass the emotions. I just really want to come home for lunch today and see a dumpster the driveway. Cross your fingers people, cross your fingers!
One way or another I’m gonna find ya
I’m gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I’m gonna win ya
I’ll getcha, I’ll getcha
One way or another I’m gonna see ya
I’m gonna meetcha meetcha meetcha meetcha
One day, maybe next week
I’m gonna meetcha, I’ll meetcha
Bet’cha been wondering what’s been going on with the actual remodeling… Well wouldn’t we all want to know. Turns out our permits were filed incorrectly by the architect… so clearly they were not approved. So now our general contractor has taken over the process and has resubmitted.
What does that mean? Well the obvious is that we’re now about a month behind schedule. And yes that is INCREDIBLY frustrating. INFURIATING even.
But ever the optimist, I’m looking at the silver lining. And hubs even agrees, now we have more time to complete some of the DIY that we wanted to in the house. I actually have a project planned for this weekend that I will be sure to update everyone about next week with pictures.
Here is the complete list of DIY’s that we would like to complete. Some can be done before construction begins, others need to wait until it’s over.
Coat Closet organization and general prettying (wallpaper + closet system)
Front Closet organization (this is this weird little linen/pantry thing, still not sure what I’m going to use it for)
