It's Our Baby....

Seriously messy...not so good for the OCD in me...
Rock and siding is going on...
Master bedroom is currently getting hardwood...
Paint and texture is pretty much done...

Yea....we are closed in now!!
I know for some of you it is a little old hearing about the house (Shayne), but I like to think of it as our baby, which makes me feel better about the extreme obsession. For example these are some similarities I anticipate when we actually do have a baby: We wait with anticipation as it changes and progresses. We're super proud of how it's turning out. It has caused moments of extreme stress, anxiety, excitement, tears, ect. It's super messy!! We have lots of people around for support, information, and TLC when it/we need it. Like a proud parent I like to show people pictures and talk about it :0). I think about it all the time and wonder if everything will be okay, will it look alright (you know you think it-haha), will everything function properly when we are in, will we have problems down the road, ect. Although it's not really a baby (I know some of you were hoping for an announcement), it will have to do for now. Besides, I am surrounded by babies and mommies to be that will let me share in their joy until it's really our turn. BTW....the painting is done, the rock is going on, the hardwood is going in, the garage doors are on, the septic is finished, the appliances are coming tomorrow, and it should be done in a month or so.

Wow! Your "baby" seems to be moving along SO quick! I doubt it feels like to to you, but it seems like you just announced you would be building! Congrats on all the progress, I hope we will get to see it sometime :)

Hey Liz long time no talk! I am way excited for you to finish your house and to put all the stress behind you. It is very enjoyable to walk into our new home every day of our lives and can't help but think and feel a over whelming feeling of all our blessing we recieve. I am sure you will feel the same also every time you walk into yours! Good Luck with all the finish work!
