House Update

Well, it has been quite a while since my last post – we’ve been so busy that my plan to update this blog daily has flown right out the window (I started writing this post over a week ago!).  And now for an update…

We officially took possession of the house on July 16th, but we were lucky enough to get the keys to the house a full week before that!  The previous homeowner was heading off early, and kindly left us a set of keys so that we could check up on the house.  That first night, after she had left, we had a picnic in our very own backyard.  We then went on a patio furniture shopping spree over the weekend, purchasing a table with two matching chairs, two lawn chairs, a little side table upon which to place our icy margaritas while lounging (that is, if we ever get a chance to lounge), and cushions for all the seating.

The last two weeks have been an absolute blur of painting, packing, tearing up carpet, ripping off baseboards, and trying to remember to feed ourselves (and the cats!).  We’ve been busy busy busy, and we’re now on the final push to finish the projects that we’ve started and get packed for the big move.  Our fingers are crossed that when we begin to move the furniture over on Friday, we won’t be moving onto bare plywood floors (actually, sexy green underlay).  The kitchen has undergone a major transformation, and I anticipate that the living room and bedroom will be pretty amazing as well once we have a floor!  Pictures to come soon!
