Living Amidst the Chaos

Wow. The past couple of weeks have REALLY been a whirlwind! We made several trips between Abilene and Lubbock to move all of our stuff and paint and do some remodeling to our house. I never realized what I was getting myself into when I said that I wanted to paint everything before we moved in. NOT as easy as it sounds, let me tell you. We painted six rooms in a week and are still lacking the bathrooms. We also painted all of the doors and are in the process of painting the door frames and the trim. Last week we got all new floors so this place has really made a transition! I still have several blinds to hang, and a LOT of unpacking and touching up to do. I am so excited to see what everything looks like when this place is finally complete!

70% of our earthly belongings hung out in the garage for a few days. We couldn't decide if it was sad that everything we own fit into a garage, or if it was sad that we had enough stuff to fill up a whole garage after being on our own for only a few years.
We finally got the garage clear on Friday. Now, we live amongst rooms such as this one...
and this one... (which is probably the closest to a complete room that we have right now. yikes.)
Here's to another fun-filled week of organizing!

Can see that you are making this place wonderful. Love the color of the dining area already. Heard you got a job. Congrats!!!!! It will all come together and you will be living the "normal" life soon. Missed you and Ethan horribly at Red Mt. We thought of you a lot!
