If you didn’t know, we decided to buy a house at the beginning of June without any real planning. A house we have always liked hit the market and we decided to jump on it. We spent much of the month of June trying to purge some of our items and started the processes of sprucing up the home that we would need to sell. We actually closed on our new home on July 13th and spent a lot of time painting and having carpet installed so we could get moved in. Once we had everything moved, the real work started. We had hardwood floors refinished, vinyl flooring installed, and carpet in our basement areas. The interior of the entire house was painted and new baseboards were put down. Our former house hit the market the last weekend of August and we are now under contract.
I miss reading and blogging. I miss being able to focus for more than 5 minutes at a time on anything other than all of this house business. I want to stop obsessively cleaning everything and I really want to retire from home improvement. Oh, I want to stop writing checks to everyone!
Thanks for hanging in there with me! I did enjoy reading everyone’s comments even though I was usually too exhausted to reply or blog hop.
