Moved-In And Settling

Posted: May 4, 2012 in Uncategorized

Its been a while since I've had a few minutes to update! Perhaps one

of these days I'll recount the entire saga of events leading up to

this purchase…but long story short- it was an emotional roller

coaster, but now we have a great house that's cheaper than our monthly

rent! We closed the evening of May 1st and that was our first night

living in our new home!

The guys (Steve and my dad) have been bringing furniture in, boxes in

slowly (our garage is still full!), putting light kits on the ceiling

fans and starting painting tomorrow! We got the carpet cleaned

yesterday and we have Internet being hooked-up tomorrow. Eventually,

the guys will play with the new wall mount for the tv…until then we

are detached from news…which at this point has been kind of nice!

Our really BIG projects coming up:

– get flashing on the roof (should be completed by a friend soon)

– repair a small portion of dry-wall (same friend)

– fix the boys shower (find a plumber)

– install fan bathroom vents (assuming this is electrical…not sure

who to get for that one!)

– understand how to operate the sprinkler system (we have a guy coming

out Saturday)

– garbage disposal install (not sure who to get for this one

either…not a necessity, but would make things a lot easier!!).

– get a dishwasher! Hopefully shopping tomorrow!

…unpack the rest of the garage!

So this may take a bit longer than I would have imagined…but we are

in a great house! I find myself exhausted most of the time right

now…but IVIG should help with this and my pain-level. I should get

this treatment either late next week or early the week after!

What a whirlwind! One of these days I will be able to relax…maybe…

More to come! I'm awake because I've been sleeping on the couch. Steve

accidentally purchased oil-based primer and breathing in the fumes

literally made me sick! I'm at the furthest possible point away from

nasal-contact…still not far enough!!! New house smell…NOT!!!!
