I had really intended to get back into the full swing of blogging in September but life has been throwing nonstop wrenches into my works. Not the least of which is the fact that we will be moving soon.
We submitted an offer on our rental house a couple months ago not even knowing if the owner was open to selling. And then he turned around and sold it to someone else (I can't really talk about this without going all CAPSLOCKDEATH on you so I'll skip the details).
Cue frantic scramble to find somewhere else to live. Don't want to talk about this either. More caps lock.
I am not being melodramatic when I tell you that it was a miracle in the literal sense of the word when we found our new house. God knows and loves me, guys. That's the only explanation for how this all worked out.
We closed on Friday. We finalized and ordered all our flooring on Saturday. Demo started yesterday.
|Sadly, after they took out all the drywall we discovered this wall is structural. So, that's been fun trying to work around.|
The house has a fantastic layout but it needs needs significant updating. I'll be doing some work myself but, fortunately, the budget allowed for some help in the labor department so we've got a wonderful team over there doing the really hard stuff. The house will look completely different when we're done- we'll be painting, replacing ALL the flooring, scraping popcorn ceilings, putting in new countertops, ripping out a really stupid wall (above), changing light fixtures and a ton of other little things. I'm overwhelmed and super excited at the same time.
|Sadly, this will not be staying.|
Odds are good it's going to go all radio silence over here again. If you want to come help paint cabinets or pull down wallpaper or dig trenches for a sprinkler system at the new house just follow the paint fumes and loud swearing. There I'll be.
