It's Saturday and It's COLD!!!

Well here it is Saturday at last......I can't believe how cold it is. Just a few days ago my neighbors were outside washing their car. Today we have snow and freezing cold temps.

We spent our day at the new house. Trying to line up all the contractors so that we can get this project moving. We've started that process of changing things. Hopefully we won't find too many problems along the way.

We let the kids help with tearing down the wall that was between the kitchen and the living room. They had so much fun. We let them actually kick the wall to get it down. It was the half wall with the spindles at the top, paneling on the kitchen side and drywall (with this UGLY blue stucco) on the living room side. The cabinets are being replaced, the dishwasher is going on the other side of the sink, the stove is moving a bit, a snack bar is going to be where the spindles were, and the floor will be tiled. The wallpaper is going also. Making a few changes...............

I added some pics so you can see what it looked like before we started. I'll try to take more as we go along so that you can see what it looks like when we are done.

Take A Look At Our House

Finally home from work. Been watching it snow off and on all day, but still no snow on the ground. A few times it was coming down pretty good, but then a few minutes later...nothing.
Oh well.
Well I must say that I have enjoyed reading the blogs over the last couple of days.
I find it so interesting how peoples lives are so alike. How you think sometimes that you are the only one who feels a certain way, when in fact alot of others have the same feelings or fears that you do. It is a good thing to know that you are not alone.
Michael and I have just bought a house together. We got it at a great price. It had gone through a forclosure, so it needs alot of TLC. I am so looking forward to doing the repairs. We are going to expand the master bedroom and bath. We have a contractor lined up already and as soon as he finishes the job he is on now, he will start on ours. I can't wait!! I have attached a pic so that you all can see it. I am excited about getting to redo the house. It has so much more room than the one we are in now. It is very close to Lindsey's school. I can stand on the front porch and watch her walk to school. The funny thing is, this is her last year there. She will be going to Warren East Middle School in the fall.
Linney, I know how you feel about signing those papers for a house. It is a big step, but well worth it. I took a look at the pics of the place you and Jay are loking at....Looks very nice.
For those of you who are wondering.....Michael and I will be getting married in April 2007.
Adam still has a year of college to go and I don't want him to lose his grants, so we have decided to wait a bit to get married.
Well I guess I'll go for now. Need to decide what's for dinner tonight. The kids think for some reason that I should feed them tonight......
