Amazing. I woke up this morning to a spring blizzard. Not the most pleasant spring vacation for my kids but it's wonderful because our farmer/contractor and staff area are all over at the new house working up a storm. My oldest Jessica is home for spring break. She and I removed nails from baseboards and removed the remaining old paneling. All old carpet is removed and hanging out in the garage until it goes to the dump or ???
Waiting at home for a call from the flooring guy. In the mean time we've boiled up 6 dozen eggs, made hot hoagie buns and a batch of breakfast bars, and done laundry.
Can hardly wait to try out that fireplace!Have a wonderful Easter!;

This is so different from all our other closings in the past. John was off Wednesday and when we called the title company that morning the papers were ready to go. We'd gone to the trouble of getting a power of attorney for me to sign in case everything came together and he couldn't get off work to sign documents. I was so grateful we didn't need it and we could be together for this very important moment in our lives.
Every other time we've closed we've signed papers and been handed the keys. This is also the first time we've bought a home that we expect to keep and not just turn around and move or trade up.
Now comes the hard part- fixing it all up! Something I've always wanted to do and never had the chance. I love make overs and now I'm ready to begin mine.
PS Have an Amazing Palm Sunday.
HE IS RISEN!
