Camping out would be the best way to describe what we are currently doing right now. Let’s just start with what we DON’T have right now…
kitchen sink (almost hooked up), a shower (waiting for the grout to dry and sealer to dry), dishwasher (needs to be plumbed out), HVAC (getting delivered on Friday. Thank you Jesus for the cold front that came through!), the microwave broke, baseboards, and interior doors.
We do have….
really sweet hardwood floors, lights, fans, frig, stove, temporary blinds, toilets, and a bathroom sink. We have moved in our den furniture, dining room, toys, everyones beds and dressers. And a few rugs.
Tim has a 2 week “vacation” from school between quarters and so he is working long hours to get everything up and running. I have moved our necessities in and already realized we are going to sell about 1/2 of what we own. No seriously. At least one piece of furniture from every room will be sold, along with the dozens of boxes of stuff that I haven’t missed since April so I’m just selling it. I am not sentimental really so this is a good thing right now. We are going to live super minimalistic so that are space is actually space, not filled with crap… ya know?
I’m too embarrassed to take pics right now, but I will by the end of the week. I am hosting Davids birthday party at our house Friday night so that is my deadline to have everything looking like a home. Then, we are having a mega yard sale, and going to the beach next week =) Don’t worry, for all you followers… I am having an Open House in October. By then, this place should look like a magazine. I’m seriously blown away by Nellie Mae, she is beautiful and everything inside is looking picture perfect. I can rough it for a few more days until we get there….. so sorry if you drive by and see my husband showering with a hose. The kids and I drive to a neighbors to shower. Here’s to unpacking with toddlers and late nights unpacking, gotta love it.
YAY! You’re almost there!!! I can’t wait to see you guys all moved in. Is the shed cleaned out? We’re moving in!!! We will bring some chocolate cake and champagne to celebrate!
WOW!!!! That is really what comes to mind everytime I check for an update. You and your husband have done a GREAT job, the house looks amazing. Congrats!!!!!
