tomorrow is more finishing work, REpainting 3 walls in one room because I HATE the color (white basically) that is in there now. I thought it was a lightlight tan, it is not. Grrr.... And finishing paiting the bathrooms...
New carpet Wednesday. Moving Saturday/Sunday.

PS. I'll have to take an 'after' picture in the afternoon when the light is the same as the before picture! But seriously, the pictures don't do it justice!
HUM...Can you tell what walls I've been paiting...???

We are hopefully picking up the appliances on Wednesday.
Tentative schedule: we'll see how it goes...
Present time - Oct 15th: fix up, paint
Weekend of the 17th: Laminate flooring. Carpet to either go in right before or right after this weekend.
Weekend of the 24th: Move!!!
Weekend of the 31st: Have our first holiday in our house hopefully with some tick-or-treater visitors.
We're hoping to have an open-house type thing in Novemeber but who knows...it could be in January.
Pictures of the renovations start soon! We took "before" pictures of everything and I can't wait to get to the "after" ones!!!

But there are other ways this year feels different. One of the main ones is the people I am working with. They are around my age (actually, I am the youngest in the school ;) and really fun. We hung out last night with 2 girls I work with and their husbands. We made pizza, drank a few beers, and had a good time! I've been to many happy hours and dinners with various members of the staff! I really feel like I belong at this school. It has been a rough first month with the other resource teacher in the school quitting and me being the case manager for 50+ students but things are finally starting to work themselves out at school!
All in all this decision that Jason and I made together to move down here has been a success! Life is coming into place for the time being with good jobs, a new home, and a happy marriage!

Though it all we've had a wonderful agent, Patti Philip. She is actually a family friend which made this process so great! And holy-moley do we both look happy in the below picture! Since we closed after 5 on a Wednesday we have to wait until Monday (keeping fingers crossed) to get our keys. Then the fun begins. We already have a to-do list and have been paroosing Craigslist for a fridge and washer/dryer. We also need all the start up items: hose, lawn mower, tools, to name a few. Some things we can borrow from family for the time being (aka until we have more money) but some we're going to have to pony up to earlier. We are definitely hitting the garage sales this weekend!!!
