I've actually been home for quite the stretch - just about 3 whole weeks. Those three weeks have been crazy hectic with stuff and visitors. We are still trying to get the house exterior painted so that the bank appraiser can come by next week (awesome mortgage rates right now - woohoo!). The weather hasn't cooperated in the last 2 weeks, so we have just a little bit of trim to do...today looks good though, so it'll probably finally get done (and this is first coat stuff that we're struggling to finish). We've also ordered the last of the living room / dining room stuff for now - rugs! The dining room was delivered this week and we quickly put it in (overstock.com has great prices, 2.95 shipping and they had a 15% off coupon)...living room will show up in squares next week while I'm gone.
I don't think that the house stuff will end this year....after the paint, we have concrete for the driveway...after that we need to get the front / back porch and steps done. Then we have to put a curtain drain in and then we have to landscape. Sheesh.
Speaking of leaving again - Indianapolis here I come! Trying to get at least one of my case studies writing assignments printed before I get to class...the rest can be done as needed.
