To Much Rain!

So we've had the dumpster since Monday morning and the cable install was yesterday. The cable man came out of the basement and said "you sure have your work cut out for you." Thanks cable guy like I didn't know that already. But my thesis proposal is in and my exam is over so I can finally do a few things here at the house. I think I'm going to unpack the kitchen now that it's nice and clean (which we did at 9pm Saturday night).
I've cooked once, you don't want to know what we've been eating aside from that, we've been alittle gross. Last night we adventured to the "tavern" down the road. We pulled in and the parking lot was full of pickup trucks, bruce insisted on coming home and changing into a t-shirt. The food was pretty good and they have OpaOpa on tap (not quite BBC but tastes like home) pretty good considering its a mile or so down the road.

Busy Week

We've slowly been collecting things from Shawn's we got the other bed and food from the freezer Friday. Friday my dad also came down with a box truck full of my furniture! The living room is full of furniture that needs a home!
Saturday Bruce did errands and chores all day while I worked on my thesis proposal the office tentitively looks like this but I hope to paint most of the big furniture white.
Last night we cleaned some of the kitchen so that it can be functional (we are no longer afraid to put things in cabinets) this last picture is a before and after of just cleaning the cabinets (left side not cleaned!)

It's Ours!!!!!

We (Bruce) signed last night and started moving in. The lawyer asked us if we were excited, we told her it was mostly releif, our offer on this house was accepted on June 24. That makes getting here a Enough that we brought the pets and slept there last night. So excited to have my desk back and a place to do work, its amazing.
The mess however is not amazing, the real work starts now, bang out my thesis proposal, study for an exam and start cleaning painting, yard work and all those other lovely things. Right now it's like we are camping in a house with lots of boxes!

so we are in the process of getting an FHA loan, and just waiting to hear from the broker about it.
The electricity at the house is off not really sure why but I figured it out when I was there at the end of last week looking for winter shoes and there was a puddle in the kitchen from the freezer defrosting. hope it doesn't get below freezing anytime soon.
I have gotten back into the habit of virtually remodeling the house, I'm pretty sure that my steamer will work to take down the wallpaper, I can't wait to get started on the little inexpensive things I can do myself.
For the bathroom I'm pretty sure we've decided to paint it light grey and do a cool retro fabric from tonic living for the curtains.
