Busy, Busy, Busy

Life is swamped and unfortunately blogging
has simply fallen to the bottom of my
"get to do" list
way underneath my "have to do" list!

These past few weeks, since getting a contract
on the house, have been so busy!

Our weekends and evenings have been spent
gutting the new house!
We were also able to get our wonderful
contractors started on some work, as well!
I've been taking photos and hopefully next week
will have some time to post all the great changes!
We have been  working getting bids
for things such as...
heating/ air
plumbing
insulation
&
electric!
We have also received a bids
for fun things like kitchen cabinets
and have scoured our local
big box stores for
deep discount, top of the line
appliances!
New windows and doors have been ordered!
School is over for the summer!
Temporary housing has been found (finally)!
Boxes are being packed
and moving truck has been reserved for this
Saturday!
Closing is scheduled for this coming
Tuesday morning.

I'm doing my best to stay up to date with all my blog friends,
however I'm not always able to comment like I want....
I miss you all and look forward to catching up more soon.

If you look closely at the photo, you might see the
double rainbow!
Have a wonderful week!

Dee Dee,
We are all cheering you on! It has been fun reading about all that you and Wayne have been doing, fixing and getting homes ready. All of the homes.
I am so excited for all of you. And so glad you found a temporary home (lots of prayers are going up for you!).

I will wait very for patiently for you to ease back into blogging.

Congratulations on the final steps to selling house number 1. I've been wondering what you have been up to. I keep looking for a blog update. Can't wait to see the progress. How are the dogs by the way? I miss reading about them. Love to you and the family. Aunt Judy

Busy, busy, busy indeed!
It is such a lot of work but I hope you are enjoying at least some of it. I look forward to future posts when you are more "settled".

Hi Dee Dee, I've been thinking of you & wondering how the house is coming (and how you're handling it all!). I still feel overwhelmed and so behind - as if we moved last week, not last summer...11 mos ago! Slow, slow going... I can't wait to see pics next week and at least you have beautiful flowers! I can't imagine moving into temp housing though! Blessings, Nan

You have so much going on right now it is so understandable that blogging is put on the back burner. This is such an exciting time for you and your family....creating your new home!! Take care!!
