Getting Things Done

It has been a week and a half since being in our new home and I am realizing that we really are getting things done. I don't think we understood how much needed to be done when we got here. Some days feel like you take 2 steps forward and 1 step back, but we are still making progress. Here is a short list of what we have done. Some of these things were hired out and some were done with our own sweat.

-replaced the carpet with new carpet and hard wood floors
-cleaned and sealed the tile
-stripped the wall paper in the laundry room, primed, textured and painted
-changed dryer from gas hook up to electric
-replaced all the appliances
-replaced the crazy light in the kitchen
-put up shelves in Tissy's closet and school room
-moved a cabinet from dinning room and put in laundry room
-put in cabinet in hall bath
-trimmed overgrown bushes
-fixed screen door on lanai
-replaced door knob in guest house
-ordered counter tops to be put in this week
-changed drawer slides on large drawer in the kitchen
-hooked up W/D in garage for guest house
-lined all the cupboards and drawers with paper
-started repainting the inside of the house with a neutral color

This list would be half as long if my parents weren't here helping out. They have been such a blessing to us this week. Hope we don't wear them out so they don't want to come back. But, all in all, when I step back and look we really have gotten a lot done.
