The cabinets arrived. Well...half the cabinets arrived, but that is a whole other blog post. Then the appliances arrived. Then the sofas, chairs, and ottoman arrived. Then the table and beds arrived. Then the mattresses showed up. There was a whole crew in and out hanging cabinets and the flooring guy was trying to put carpet on the steps that the furniture crews were climbing. He should have been finished last week, but again...another blog post. A guy was in there putting tinted mortar on the fireplace. The house was hopping.
When the chaos finally cleared it looked something like this...

Oh my. His honey-do list is quite extensive.
|Fish and Rough Stuff enjoying the new place.|
It has been several weeks since Fish has gone into the house. The other kids get excited about the progress but Fish wanted to be surprised. As you can see, she approved. The kids were so excited they didn't want to leave. I was under the same spell. It is really difficult to stop at the house now just to drop something off or meet someone and then have to leave. I just want to sit in the middle of the house and admire it with a big, goofy smile on my face.
So, the house has come together nicely. We are all packed up and ready to move in. We're just sitting around waiting for the volunteers to come and help us load the moving truck.
If you believe that, I've got a crock to sell you.
