Things we've accomplished in our new home:

1.  Pulled the GINORMOUS weeds from the back yard.  My legs still ache.  Seriously, some of them were the size of trees.

2.  Met our next door neighbor, who after watching my struggle with the weed-trees, offered to let me use the weed trimmer.  Of course, I had to do it the hard way, so kindly rejected her offer.

3.  Spent 3 hours cleaning the master shower, tub, and counter.  Didn't even get the tub or floor.  Dis. Gust. Ing.

4.  Spent 6 hours prepping/painting about 2/3 of the master bedroom.  Not including the baseboards.  That's one room.  We have a whole lot of painting to go.  Anyone wanna come over and help?  

5.  Removed the fridge to discover a new definition of filth.  I almost threw up.  

So this house is turning out to be a whole lot of work.  But I think we're both happy we got it, especially since Josh gets to improve his 'handy-man' skills.  And when it's done we're hoping it looks good.  But right now all I want is our soft, squishy, shag carpet to get here so I can walk around barefoot.  That's right, we got shag style carpeting.  And I have never been more excited.

One year...

Holy crap, where has the time gone?  Josh and I celebrated our one year anniversary yesterday.  Since it was on a Sunday, we couldn't really do much.  Church, friends, a nap--the ususal.  But Saturday and Monday were the real celebration!  On Saturday Josh and I spent the morning choosing carpet for our new house! And on Monday we signed the paperwork and made it official.  What a great anniversary present.  

Speaking of anniversary presents, I feel like I should share with everyone what I got Josh, cause it's kind of a big deal for me.  I gave him puppy food, pee-pee pads, a dog bone, and permission to get the puppy he's dying for.  And now I think it's going to be me who dies.  Yes, I guess there will be an animal in a house of mine.  I never thought I would ever agree to this, but it's crazy how marriage can change you.  So now in addition to paint shopping, we get to go puppy shopping as well.

An update on the house

We're supposed to close on Thursday! Except Josh will be out of town, so it will be Saturday or maybe Monday.  And I'm so excited!
