The Move Part 1

Due to some complaints from my non-commenting readers
I am now updating my blog.

The end.

So tempting.

Well, we did it. We bought a house.
I was oh so very patient.

and Noah DID buy me a sock monkey last week.
pictures to come.

I took a lot of pictures of the whole process of purchase, remodel, move-in.
I won't be posting them this time...(you'll notice this is Part 1)
I've really been too busy/lazy
to do anything outside of the necessity.

Noah's mom, came home from the hospital the same day that we ended up closing on the house...literally an hour or so the weeks that followed were pretty hectic for us.

I was able to get some sisters from the church together to clean the place down.

some notes:

an inch of dog hair and bugs on the window sill in the living room.
a rubber snake in the utensil drawer
552 plastic grocery bags stuck between the refrigerator and the wall
the nastiest fridge and stove I have EVER seen.

Thats just the short list.

We ended up having to take up all the laminate flooring through the dining room, kitchen, and living room because their dogs had peed on it and the smell was AWFUL.

And when I say we...I really mean Noah.
lets just get that straight right here.

We also tore down a wall. And rebuilt one.
Actually, I helped on the tear-down....does that surprise you?

For Noah and I..this house was a blessing in many many ways....
It's definitely in need of work and repair...and we've done a lot to it so far...
You'll see all that in the posts to come.

I'm so thankful to have a place of our own.
