dang...

we are moving into our new place on saturday. this week has been totally insane. i'm ticked i didn't think to take before and after photos of the house. it's amazing how much better it looks now. we tore out all the carpet in the whole house. the only place there wasn't carpet was in the kitchen and bathrooms. under the carpet was really nice wood floors, so we are just leaving them. we are getting new carpet put on the stairs and in the basement. that's getting installed friday. we've painted every wall in the house. it's amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do. it's a ton of work though. on monday my mom painted for about 12 hours, and on tuesday i did...taking breaks long enough to feed the baby. i replaced all of the hardware in the kitchen, and we got new faucets for the kitchen and downstairs bathroom. today a guy came and tore out both bathroom floors and the shower tile, and he should be done putting in the new tile tomorrow. my poor mom scrubbed the floors (we didn't cover them while we were painting!) and washed the blinds today. it's been stressful trying to get all of this done so quickly while juggling samantha and alexis, but it will be worth it in the end. i just want this weekend to get over with. moving is a nighmare. oh, and we are seriously not painting again until we can afford to pay someone else to do it!!!!!!! oh, i watch HGTV alot when i'm nursing...the changes we made in the house could seriously be on one of their shows!!! dang...i wish i would've taken pictures...

You are working so hard. I can't believe all that you have done to your new place in such a short period of time and with a new baby too. You must be exhausted! Your new home will be so awesome. I wish you were going to have before and after shots too. But it will still be so fun to see the after shots. Can't wait.

I watch HGTV all the time. In fact I'm watching it right now.

Moving is such a pain. I'm so sorry! It sounds like you're getting a lot done and it will be so worth it in the end.

I checked out your last few posts. I love the pictures of the baby. Oh they grow so fast! She is darling! Good job on being down 3 more pounds. I think I'm going to start posting on my blog about losing weight. I've committed to going back to the gymn on Monday. I used to teach aerobics and I have done NOTHING since I got pregnant with Zade. I really need a good kick in the butt. Good job to you.

is all the work for the new place or the old place you are leaving? I am thinking its the new place. Moving is a hassle, but getting into something bigger is allot of fun. Congrats and good luck!

Congrates on the move, sounds like it is a nice home. I can understand how frusterating it is to get everything situated for the big move.
