I am hoping to move the "paint kitchen project" up to the what's left: pre-move in section on this list, but we will see. If time avails.

As you can see, it is coming along!! For the first time yet our home-to-be looks like it could actually be a home and no longer a construction site, or dumpy place. Woo hoo! It is exciting to see all our hard work come together. Who would have known what a little (okay, well a lot) of paint and a whole lot of clorox could do! ;)

If all goes well Friday will be the big move in day. At this point, much is accomplished, much is to do. I am no longer feeling overwhelmed now, at least not at that momment, with the big things taken care of.

I am continuing to learn so much through this process. The Lord is good! He is totally growing me through this. This "project" has been a blessing in disguise, no doubt.

Sneak peak:

(Look who managed to sneak into the picture. Jokester hubs. His goofy self seriously keeps me sane in times like these.)
