IT'S MOVING DAY!!!


OH! The looooonnnnnggggg awaited time is here! We closed on old house and new house last night. Woke up early this am to get the party started. Well.. I had to have some coffee and blog first. But I am ready to rock! Here are a couple of pics of the house. PLEASE keep in mind this is a fixer upper. I am a little frightened to show you most of the pics. The kitchen is HUGE! i have never had a large kitchen. I am very excited about it. My daughter who is 11 years old cannot wait to get an island for the kitchen. Now why in the world she cares about that? I don't know! HA. Check out the double oven!!! WoooHOOO!! I may start cooking again! The front of the house needs lots of work. Monday we start construction for a new driveway and stairs up to the front entry. We are replacing some wood with vinyl and fixing the roof. New carpet also goes in on Monday. We will have to move most everything in the basement until the carpet goes in. Today we start all the cleaning, scrapping, dusting, etc while the heating and air people put in our new heating unit. Hopefully that will get the walls warmed up to start painting tomorrow and Sunday before the carpet goes in on Monday. So LOTS to do. I need to drink up this coffee and get going.
Thanks for all the well wishes through this adventure!
Cheers!
