ch ch changes

The upstairs floors are all re-sealed! Pretty much everything is painted up there except the bathroom (which is going to be renovated in a month or so anyway), one hall closet, the hall (but it's primed!), and the accent stripe in the baby's room! A good portion of the water damaged finished basement is torn out! The downstairs is also mostly primed and I think the downstairs floors are being sealed tomorrow or Tuesday!

The moral of the story is that interior things are virtually done. We still need a stove but I am holding out on that because the kitchen is also going to be renovated within a month or so and I don't want to have to pay someone to hook up the gas stove twice. Plus, in the summer heat + a house with no AC, I know I won't be doing much cooking other than on the grill/in the microwave and if I absolutely need to I'll buy a hot plate in the meantime. The next big project to finish is all the outdoors stuff: we need to grade the property (that involves buying topsoil), clean the gutters, patch up a few popped nails on the roof, clean out/fix some of the window wells, scrape the paint off the exterior doors and sills and repaint, etc. I'm hoping we'll get that all done pre-baby but I'm pretty sure we're running on empty after all the house stuff we've been doing the last 2 weeks so we'll see. We have fabulous friends and family who have put so much time and love into our house and we are so grateful.

Also, be on the lookout for my favorite of our maternity pictures posted here by midweek. I don't get to see them until Tuesday so by Wednesday I'll hopefully have some posted. :)
