So sorry. (MOM) Been too busy to blog. Why you say? Well-----we heard some magic words yesterday.
MOVE IN. It's all done. We're outta here. See ya, have a nice life. And off they went. All the "dudes" leaving us with a dirty, but done home.
So last night we cleaned up the construction mess and partially set up our new living room. I just HAD to have one room looking like we live there, besides Chloe's room, who btw, moved herself in over the course of this week already. 'Cause her room was done.
We still have a few odds and ends to do, put on toilet seats, closet rods, staining the stairwell. The back splash guy is coming tomorrow, he is also the floor guy so he will put down the trim between floors and around the steps. The stone out front isn't done yet, but that isn't keeping us out.
We are moving in. FINALLY. It's looking amazing. A complete blessing, even with the hassles. Had another one (hassle) this am but it turned out better than we thought. Water got going yesterday via the plumber and we had rotten egg smell. OIY. Called the well drilling company this am to see if we needed a whole house filter for sulfur.
NOPE. Thank God, we just needed to "shock" the water in hot water tank as it had sat for a time and when it does that bacteria grows in it and smells like sulfur. Stink-ee.
So dude arrived and now it smells bleachy clean- ha ha.
And I'm off to get some more cleaning done and stuff arranged. Pictures to come, no time to post them now.
For all who responded to the "baby picture" post, thank you. The kids were "found" older. No young finding ads for them. And I am letting them think about what they want to do, how they want to handle it. I was just thrilled to give them choices, to not have to say "too bad we have no baby pictures." And they are very thankful and amazed they have some options to choose from.
I appreciated every one's opinions and am so thankful you care enough to share with us, these wonderful and tough times with our family.
For now, party hardy for us, we are moving in. WHOOOO HOOOOOO!!
