busy bees

what started out as painting a few rooms, turned into "lets paint the whole house!" a fresh coat of paint just says, "new" to me. plus now its my dirt and not that guys! we took over the house last friday, and have been busy little workers every since. sunday was the first full day of work. can you say sore? we painted all day, took cabinets off to sand, and took down all the light switch covers. it was a full day. B-U-S-Y!

Monday some friends of ours from Little Rock were in town on Spring Break with their kids. They were staying at Great Wolf Lodge. Only the coolest place ever. For those that don't know, its an indoor water park. Let me repeat, Indoor! I want to stay there, I'm a dork! We went to eat at Joes Crab Shack, and spend the rest of the night just catching up. So we didn't end up getting to work Monday night. I worked late last night at the store, so Bill was on his own. He does such a good job! He primed all the kitchen cabinets. He has a plan, and he is sticking to it!

So, the utilities were supposed to be transfered into our name today. Well Bill went by the house today and while standing in the living room, out went the power! Like any other service such as this one, they "can't come until tomorrow" to turn it back on. Another night of no work! UGH!

I am becoming very fond of Lowe's. The paint man, and the man (Reggie) that checks me out are my new best friends. Lowe's is so much better than Home Depot, in my opinion. They really DO want to help you. Its always nice to have someone want to help you these days. We will make a trip to Lowe's tonight (duh!), I hope I see my friends...

I will try and do good about posting pics of the progress. I'm not at home much these days. I even made about 10 sandwiches last night to take over to the house, so we don't have to break for dinner! We have a month to finish, but its gonna fly by.

Wish us luck!


  1. Great to see you guys bought a house! That is so much fun! The house looks great on the outside and I'm sure all of your hard work will pay off inside as well! Enjoy!
