House Update

Well, the carpet is in.

But we are not.

Some of our stuff is.

But we are not.

And Erik won't let me touch anything in the "work area" part of the house. So I think it's best I just stay away until I can.

It's a mess, and I want to clean.

It's close. Really close. But my husband being a both perfectionist and a finish carpenter, took a look around our "almost finished" house and wrote out a bullet list of things that were not done correctly or needed to be fixed. he wrote small and filled two sheets of college-ruled notebook paper. Only one side of each paper though, lest you worry.

I'm trying to be patient.

It's hard to be patient when it's so close to ready. All of our stuff that was in the trailer parked in our driveway has been moved into the back bedrooms and the living room (which are finished) and I've started to go through a few boxes already.

A few friends and I are attempting a garage sale on the 19th and 20th of November. Eh, why not? I have four boxes of stuff pulled out for it already and I haven't even begun to completely unpack.

It has been wonderful living comfortably with 4 children in 800 square feet and other than furniture (and not even all of it) there is tons of stuff out of the trailer that I've realized I can live without.

Oh, wait.

You probably want to see our carpeting...

It's beige-ish, with flecks of browns in it. Still very neutral and yet will not show every speck of dirt.
Apparently the contractor's plan was to finish up yesterday. That didn't happen, and there's more guys, or a guy coming out Saturday to work on it....

Someday. Someday we'll move back in.

Ooooo, I love the carpet and the wall color. I think they compliment each other perfectly, even the chandelier works great. I can't wait to see everything all finished. Your like my personal HGTV. :)

I was just driving home and wondered to myself if you were in your house yet. So glad I came and got filled in ;-) It's looking really nice!

Soon, real soon. And real soon Youngest Seester/Aunt Mins will come for a visit and "oo" and "ahh" appropriately at all the newness and life will be full of joy and joyness.
