I am done

So, we did it. We got everything done to put the house up on the market. And may I say, it looks darn good. Aside from the fact that I liked my rust colored walls better. Can we all say neutral?



I am officially done. I am done staying up way past my bedtime to paint. I am done staying up late and missing the news so that I can sew curtains. I am done seeing drywall dust and sawdust all over my house. Did I mention I was done?

The carpets are cleaned, the floors are mopped, the stockings are hung on the chimney with care...oh, wait...wrong story. And I don't even have a chimney.

Now, we sit back and wait. Well, not really sit back, I guess. I mean I still have to keep the house spotless, right. I can't let the kids leave their dirty socks all over the house or leave my jammies on the bed. I mean, I even have to make my bed. Do you guys make your bed? I always felt it quite silly to make a bed only to mess it up the same evening. I will say that I like the feel of a made bed. The nice, straight sheets, the fluffed pillow....

So, after a very busy and even more stressful 6 weeks, I have to say that I am so looking forward to my yearly getaway. Every year just us girls take a trip. Just a little road trip to get away and have some me time. I am so looking forward to the me time this year. I have already told my girlfriend that I am just looking forward to being able to eat a dinner and not have someone eating from my plate. She says, well, I guess that means I will have to resist temptation and not try your dinner? Well, okay you can try it. But don't expect me to cut it up for you.

I choked on my soup when I read,
" sewing curtains". With a machine? Really? That's amazing!

Mim: Didn't nobody say nothing about using no sewing machine. I don't even have a sewing machine. I used a needle and some thread. Are you being sarcastic to me?

What do you think?

I'm happy to see that you are done with all the hard work. I hope things go the way you want them to go with the sale of your house. Surely, you will be rewarded for all your hard work. You deserve a break!

Thanks for all the encouragement along the way everyone. I hope it pays off! Soon would be nice.

yay! congrats! Let me pour you a celebratory drink :)

I can't even imagine the stress this house selling causes. I think I would just rather stick my head in the sand.

A girls vacation? Sooo jealous.

Hi, thought I check out your blog. We did the moving thing one year ago this weekend and I don't envy you at all getting the house prepped. Congrats on completing your project... good luck with the sale.

Congrats! I will be starting all that stuff soon (I hope). I'm not looking forward to doing all the work but I am looking forward to moving.
