I am finally getting around to showing you guys a few sneak peeks of the new digs. We are not in yet...waiting, waiting, waiting on the city. As Tom Petty says, "waiting is the hardest part." Over the past 2.5 months we have gutted 2.5 bathrooms and a kitchen, put in all new windows, ripped up carpet and refinished the cement flooring. And if that's not enough, the crew working on our home has ripped off the roof, added a second floor - to house the hub's studio, closed in a breezeway to create a mudroom and installed a new roof. Whew. That's a lot in 2.5 months right? I'm having a hard time deciding if this monster project is a W.I.P. or a whip. It might just be a little of both!
The hubs and I spent the better part of this past Saturday painting the playroom (above) and kitchen. It was insanely hard work, the ceilings nearly killed me, but I'm getting really excited about moving in. The kitchen is awaiting counter tops and island. She will be bright white with some open shelving and a HUGE window that looks out to the patio and backyard.
I have a ton more to show you, but that's it for now - baby steps homies. Baby. Steps.
Hope you are enjoying your week. If you are the praying kind, we could really use 'em. The city is delaying us again and school starts next Monday for my oldest. It will be a new school for him, so I really want him in his own room to get a good night's sleep before the big day. Will you join us in prayer that miracles would happen and we would be approved for power before the 27th? We'd really appreciate it. xo
