House Updates




Heating....check!
Well....check!
Insulation....check!
Drywall....check!
Roof....check!
Siding....1/2 done....waiting for flashing.
So far so good on the house. Of course we have gone over budget a little bit more than planned, but it will help us finish faster in the end :0). We are waiting on a few things to be able to finish up the siding outside, working on that has taken some patience for sure!! They have everything ready on the inside to start taping, and texturing. Soon after will come paint and flooring. From there it will be all finish work. I finally got all of my faucets...I love them!! We did have a little minor bump with the accent tile-they stopped making it!! So now we have to pick out a new one this weekend, which I am actually excited to do...since I found one I like better :0). All in all it is progressing. They should start on the exterior next week, along with taping and texturing. We are also going to get the septic started next week.
On another note....school is going well. I really love working with the little kids, I have never had so many compliments!! They are so cute...always finding something nice to say-unlike those high school kids. I am not sure what happens between elementary and high school, but wow-what a change!! I can also say that I am back to working out...a little girl asking if I was pregnant kicked that into high priority (I was sitting down with a small group in one of the 1st grade classes and she just blurted it out....luckily she finished it off with a "Oh, I thought you said you had kids"-guess my flouncy shirt was a little distracting-haha). I am doing an early morning bus route so I have to be to work by 6:45...so I am up by 6am. I am so not a morning person, but I do love getting off early and it's a pretty easy way to start the morning. In the afternoon I work with a little boy one on one for an hour and I absolutely love it!! He is such a great way to end my day!! Eric is staying busy trying to retrain his freshman how to behave in PE, but seems to really be enjoying the start of the year, and the new principal (who I think is great lady!!).
Anyways, I hope all is well for you out in blogland!! Happy compliments to all my friends!

IF you got asked if you were pregnant it had to be because of the shirt you were wearing NOT because you look it! I love the pictures of the house. Although stressful, building is pretty fun and exciting. I can't wait to see the fninshed project. Oh, and I love the pictures of Amber and her family. So cute!
