Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel

It's a very dim light. And by dim, I mean, you can KINDA see it, if you squint. And turn your head to the right at a 45 degree angle. And hop on one leg.

Things are moving full force ahead with the house buying and selling. The new house has been appraised, and did well. My current home was supposed to be appraised today... but the guy never showed up, never called anyone to say he was, or to call to say when he is coming. Slightly aggravated about that, but hey, not much I can do. But this guy is slowing up progress.

As of right now, we still have a few weeks before we close. It's roughly set for the 18th for our house and the 19th on the new house. (but if this appraiser doesn't hurry up and show up... anyways) The lady we're buying our new house from has asked for about a week after we close for her to move her things out... so we should be moving around the end of August.  And right now that's all I want. All the buying and selling to be over and to be in the new house. Once we've been there a little bit, then we'll start the remodel.

Oh, did I mention that? The house was built in the late 70's... and nothing has been done to it since then. Paneling, blue bath tubs and toilets... oh lord have mercy. It's a lot. I'm trying not to focus on all the work right now (even though I've been pinning away on pintest ideas for things to do to the new house), and just focus on  getting in the house.

Oh, and we're going to live in the house while we do all these major remodels. 

Yeh. We've lost our minds.

HGTV, DIY, if ya'll are reading this, feel free to offer us a show, I promise this is going to be an entertaining experience.

About Me

My photo
I have three kids:
Blythe Anne, 8
Jonah, 7
Peyton, 4

My husband and I have been married for 6 years, and I spend my days being a stay at home mom while he's a driller on a land rig. So for six months of the year (he works a week on, a week off), I'm raising these kids by myself. I would write more, but I hear children screaming :)
