Now the Real Work Begins

by Tammy on March 2, 2018

I am sorry for the lack of updates. Life has been a little hectic as I mentioned in my last post. Dan made it home Wednesday night/Thursday morning around midnight after leaving at 5:00am and driving straight through for over 17 hours. He was pretty exhausted and happy to be home. I was glad he made it because I worked Thursday (yesterday) and I work today as well. Tonight I have to write my discussion board posts for my classes and then tomorrow the real work begins on the house. I got quite a bit done while Dan was gone, but now it’s crunch time and there is still so much to do. The carpet got laid in the hallway on Tuesday and it is so nice and bright that it really makes the bedrooms look dingy, so I am hiring Zerorez to come in and clean the other carpets a week from yesterday. Next Friday a photographer will come to take pictures of the house at noon and then at 1:30 our realtor is coming to list the house.

I got most of the painting done already. I have a bit of touch up in the living room, Dan needs to finish the upstairs stairwell that was too high to reach and around the ceiling in the living room, and then we’ll paint the downstairs stairwell and probably one or two small walls. After that it truly is just touch-up. Dan’s job will be the bigger projects and mine will be to get the house show-ready. I still have some decluttering to do, but I’ve made a lot of progress over the past few weeks, so I think it’s all doable. It will look better once we get stuff to storage, then I can get out in the garage and start straightening things up out there.

I can’t remember if I mentioned it, but on the 27th my mom and I are flying to Orange Beach to spend a week with April. We will be there for Easter and for April’s birthday. April gets Good Friday off, so we will have a three day weekend to spend showing my mom around. She is pretty excited.

Well, I think that is about all for now. It is going to be a very busy seven days around here, so I will have little time for anything besides house work and school work. After the house is listed, I’ll check back in and update.

Glad to hear it is all coming together. It is a busy time but it will be worth it. I bet April will be happy to see you and it will be nice for your mom too! Have a great weekend! Hugs
