Long Time No Write....

WHOA. So it's been quite a while since I've written. SO MANY THINGS I want to talk about. I don't even know where to begin! Hmmm....

First, my God-son is going to be here ANY DAY NOW! His original due date is April 7, but then they scheduled my friend for a c-section on March 30...needless to say, she went to the dr on Monday and is now on complete bed rest because he could be here at anytime. Very exciting time for everyone. Especially me because I love to spoil kids that aren't mine. :) haha! She goes back to the dr tomorrow, so hopefully they'll bump her c-section up to like Saturday. :)

Second...the house...WHOA! So many things are happening. We are set to close at 9am on Friday April 3...for those of you with poor scheduling skills, that is a little over 2 WEEKS AWAY! I can't even believe it. We have our big walkthrough next Friday March 27, and that is going to take like 2 hours they said. CRAZINESS...but if there is anything we don't like they will fix it before our final walkthrough which is set the day of closing. We also have our home inspection the day before closing. And we have hired painters! THANK GOODNESS!! Not to paint everything, but here is my ideal situation....We close Friday morning, and meet the painters at the house around 11am. They are only painting the kitchen (due to me not wanting to paint around cabinets), and the main living area (due to my fear of having to be evil kenevil on a ladder to reach the ceiling). So if we meet them at the house around 11, I am hoping they can finish the areas they're going to paint on Friday. Ideally, we will have purchased the paint for the rest of the rooms we are going to paint...laundry, 2 dining room walls, and our bedroom. HOPEFULLY we can have everything painted by the end of the day on Friday. OH...and the POD is being delivered that day too so on Saturday morning all we have to do is unload and put things away. No travel which is going to be so incredibly fantastic. :) Hopefully all of that will pan out, because I would love love love to have everything painted before we start moving furniture. That would just be amazing. Also on that Friday we will have purchased blinds so Geoff can be hanging those while the guys are painting....give him something to do yet keep him out of the way. :)

Saturday my goal is to get everything into the house and begin unpacking. I already have designated friends who are in charge of deciding if I need things or not. They're not even going to ask me...and then probably 6 months from now I'm going to be looking for something and it'll be gone. LOL. In the garage I am going to designate 3 areas....Keep, Toss, Yard we'll be having a yard sale either in April (one would hope) or sometime in May. I don't want to wait too long though because then my yard sale stuff will wind up in the basement and then when we move 60 years from now I'll be going awe man I coulda made $.30 on that single glove. LOL.

Well, I guess I really only had 2 exciting things to talk about...more to come...
