Our journey....where we've been and where we are headin!

(Hall bath ~ BEFORE)
Blogging can be sooooo intimidating sometimes because a lot of bloggers are PERFECT!!!
Their pictures are perfect! Their homes are perfect! Their ideas are perfect!!!
I'm just not perfect!
But, I want to journal our progress!
The house is not finished, but we are getting there!!! Looking at these pics helps me A LOT!!!
Wow.....we have done tons!!!
I have not really started decorating! I only have 3 things hanging on my walls! Remodeling a house takes's a process! I don't have some of my overhead lighting, some of my pics are dark! I'll take completed pics when we are done! All done!
Hall bath ~ BEFORE

You can't see bedrooms until the summer!!!!!

Good Bye For Now.....

Today....I moved my flippin closet!!!!
I took 6 bags to the SonShine Center!
I may be running around naked now!
I had to part with clothes I've had for 20 yrs.
I promise I'm not a "hoarder"!
Yes....we have toilets on the back porch!

and yes!!! We had our fridge on the back porch!!!

I have to say "GOOD BYE" for now....or until my ATT man hooks me back up!!!
I don't know what I'm gonna do without my puter for afew weeks.....sniff, sniff!!!!
(Maybe I'll get something done!!)
I don't have many clothes, but I do have something to put on!
I do have a toilet on the porch, but I have a new potty inside!
I do have a fridge on the porch, but it works and has food in it!!!
I've been really tired, overwhelmed and grouchy!!!
Moving into a house that is TOTALLY under construction is HARD!!!!
When I get really down and depressed....I visit Heather!!!
"God is so good. God is so good. God is so good.....he's so good to me!"

Hi folks!!!
I'm still here....barely!
Many of you are asking.....
Have yall moved yet?
What's the hold up???
Survey and title stuff!!!!
When is closing??
Sept. 24th ~ "the latest"
Is the house done???
NO!!! 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms down...the rest of the house is BARE!!!
Like....concrete floors bare!!!
Where in the world have you been????
(drum roll please!)
at the High School!!!!
My goal was to work wherever I was needed!!! The sweet art teacher had a horse accident and I have been trying to fill her shoes for 2 wks.!
I have definitely stepped out of my "comfort zone"! ha!

I've seen a LOT of this!!!! I've been asked if I know how to do "the jerk"!!!
I have to guard the spray paint!!!!
Everyday someone asks me how old I am and if I'm married????
I've had to inform them that I'm old enough to be their mother (a very young mother, ha!) and I'm very married!!!
There has probably been a lot of this behind my back!!!!
It feels sooooo strange! It feels like just yesterday I was in High School and I've almost been out 20 years!!!! 20 years!!!! How time flies!!!
and boy have things changed!!!
My house is filthy and we have been living out of boxes for a month and I really just want to be settled, BUT I'm so glad that God has blessed me with work!
TGIF!!!!!!! (almost)

It's a zippety doo~da day!!!

Guess what?
I actually found someone who wants to work around here!
He's honest, hard working, eager to please and affordable!
I highly recommend him, BUT you have to give him back when we go to knockin out walls in afew weeks!
(construccion...not construction! ha! I love saying that!)
My carpet came in!!!!
This carpet has seen better days!!!
I love me some Felipe!
(Don't get the wrong idea or anything!)


I'm wanting to do BLACK KITCHEN CABINETS!!!!!!!!!
(i'm kind of the "black sheep" of the family! I know that is so hard to believe!)
What do you think?????

I know that many of you follow The Hendricks Family over at Sit A Spell. If you don't....YOU SHOULD!!! They just moved their family of 6 to Haiti! (It makes my move just 3 houses down seem so small, petty and just stupid! ha) Their courage, faith and determination just blow me away!!! The girl can every post she has me laughing until my side hurts, sobbing, snotting and thinking!
You should visit her!
and pray for their journey!

Beth Moore's study, Stepping Up: A Journey Through the Psalms of Ascent, is an in-depth look at 15 Psalms. Just as a song or poem can express feelings of fear, doubt, hope, and joy, these 15 psalms model how study participants can voice their own petitions and praises to our God, who is always available and ready to hear us. Explore the major feasts of Israel and journey with Beth through Psalms 120-134 in this 7-session study. Themes such as unity, joy and gratitude, redemption, repentance, the power of blessings, facing ridicule, and more are explored in detail. Modern-day believers can learn much from these treasured Psalms in their journey toward greater intimacy with God.

Got new potties! They are in the kitchen, but...we have them!
(Like my kitchen floor???)
Don't judge me!
I love it!
Bathrooms are tiled!!!
Grout will finish it up tomorrow!!!
Bead favorite!!!
I am madly in love with my floor!!!
I see a light at the end of the tunnel! It's small, but I see it!
I so wish I had a crew like on DIY or HGTV!!
They always make things look soooo easy!!! They zip things out in one day!!! They never run into problems!!!
After all.....They are the PROS and we are NOT!!!!!
