3 more days!

We're in the homestretch now! Just 3 more days until the long awaited return to our home. Six and a half months of being displaced has almost come to an end.

This morning we woke up to a ground cover of white and Katie has a nasty cold but NOTHING can dampen my joy!!

Here is the kitchen the way it looked on Saturday. The paint is all done, except for the outside. Today and tomorrow carpet is going in. Then the cleaners come in and do their thing. We're shooting for Certificate of Occupancy on Wed. sometime. If we get that, my goal is to load the refrigerator and pantry with food Wed. evening. Then Thursday, the restoration company returns with our cleaned items that they took after the fire.

I scheduled the delivery of our new table and chairs for Thursday. You remember, the table and chairs that I "loved"? It's the exact same one and it will be wonderful to have a big table to sit at right away. But this table and chairs have been downgraded from "love" to "like a lot." Love is reserved for people:)

I have a LOT of packing to do today so I better get working!



  1. YAY GOD!
