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.

Hows about some pics of the Jack-in-the-beanstalk weeds in your back yard, and some gross-out pictures of the cockroach cemetery under your fridge. Share the gross.
