So, our homeless stint lasted just about a week. And that was just about right. I spent last week in our new house cleaning and renovating. The whole experience was sort of like being in a time warp. I had no internet and no clock. I used the position of the sun and the shadows outside to tell whether it was morning or afternoon. And I was often wrong.
We got a lot done, but we still have a LONG way to go. We'll get there one step at a time. We're still a few weeks away from being able to move in, but I'm sure it will go fast.
I hope you'll join me in celebrating, though, because we've reached quite a milestone. When we first turned on the plumbing (the house was a foreclosure, so everything was off), almost every single valve in the house leaked. Toilets, sinks, showers, washing machine connections. Plus some drains. But tonight, we're down to just one leak. One!
I know, I probably shouldn't celebrate until we're at zero leaks, but a girl needs a glass of wine.
Also, just for your viewing pleasure, I have for you my favorite part of the house thus far: a lovely note left just for us in the closet by the previous owners.
