Well we have planted flower beds, painted the enire house including all baseboards, we have completely cleaned out every room and closet, had garage sales, got brand new carpet through the whole house and then finished it off with a fresh coat of paint on the front door.
Can you guess what color we painted the door?
You got it! RED! Court thought the extra paint Brian had left out was really fun. She even thought it tasted great. WOW! I love it when my hubby is mowing the lawn and he all of a sudden comes in yelling "JENI! Why is Courtney in the garage?!" then I see red all over her hand and body. I swore it was blood. What a mess.
When we had the garage sale, Natalie and stephen both wanted to help out. They made signs, although boots' was just a bunch of scribbles. Then they wanted them on a post so they could hold them. It was adorable to see natalie go to the bottom of the driveway and wave to cars holding this sign.
After the garage sale, we decided to donate anything that was left. These trash bags were full of so much of our junk. It feels so good to get rid of it all. The hardest things to part with were my baby items, like the basinet and car seat... tear.
We are exhausted though. As of tomorrow the house is up and I am so excited about it! I am not excited about keeping the house clean with the kiddos. I am not excited about showering, cooking, eating, or living in a house that we could get called out of at any minute. Any tips and pointers from those who have done it? I just hope we will seell quickly.
So for now, all we can do is sleep and snuggle when we can!
