    We're home!
    Well, we're all moved in to our new home. WOW moving sucks... and we have way too much stuff. It took 3 trips of 3 cars and a trailer to get all our stuff moved..it was crazy. Getting the stuff there was only the beginning though. The first 2 days my mom and I basically disinfected our entire floor (there's 3 floors, we live on the middle one). The bathroom will have to pretty much be completely redone, but since that won't happen for a little while we had some major cleaning to do in there ( I can't even post pics...it was too gross). Now it's not bad, just needs a new ceiling. My mom also scrubbed down our whole kitchen and it looks so great! That's the best thing about this whole house - the kitchen... I can't post pics yet because now it's got wood bits and saw dust and tools everywhere, but yesterday it was spotless!! Now today Craig's dad, brother and grandpa are here and they have started the bigger jobs, such as putting in a doorway in our kitchen, and completely renovating the whole basement. Here are some pics, I'll get more up there as the process goes along.

    Almost done with the doorway!

      Hey Jamarama!

      I saw on facebook something about moving so I checked out your blog for more info (thank goodness for blogs!) Did you guys buy a new house? I know you think it might look gross - but if you guys are renovating, etc I'm sure it will be great. Actually I like the wood floor I saw in one pic and the door with all the windows in it - it looks nice actually. And your summer sounds like it's shaping up to be something great. Leigh and I both think that Craig must be thrilled with his new job. It seems right up his ally! so glad things are good for you guys now..

    About Me: I am an American living in Ontario. I've just recently started going to school again for a BA in Human Services. I like mexican and indian food and watching tv way more than the average individual. I absolutely love talking to my parents on the phone and my brother is one of my best friends. I'm married to a great guy whose pretty much the exact opposite of me but he loves me and makes laugh and we have a lot of fun. I didn't always feel this way, but these days I'm feelin' pretty good. That's my life, welcome to chaos and order.
