As soon as the snow melts, this home is going up for sale. I think it will show well. I spent the entire morning employing my Mr. Clean sponge in washing down walls. And did they need it! Holy moly, kids do a number on walls. I worked hard getting of marks and prints. Next will be filling in holes and dings throughout the house. And the baseboards were even worse. Scuffs running up and down them all. We'll have to repaint a lot of them. I went through all the cabinets and cupboards in my bathroom and some in the kitchen. We accumulate a lot of junk and just let it sit around. Well, goodbye JUNK! Our recycling and garbage were just emptied, and they're almost completely full again.
But it is awesome to really go through the house and do some deep cleaning. I love it. Colin pitched in some and cleaned windows and collected garbage. I was just happy when the kids did their own thing and let me at it. That is until Mira Catherine AGAIN decides to clean up her own stinky diaper. Nightmare.
I'm again toying with the idea of possibly building. I just don't know enough about it. Chad's not convinced. (Not that it can't be done, though!)My friend (and former missionary companion), Emily, and her fam, are building a house in Riverton...just the area we'll be looking at. So I'm going to really drill her to get some pro's and con's to building.
So this is all that's been on our minds. Chad's passed his PA exam (Hoorah!) and can now give his attention to this. So I'm hoping at least a couple of days this week Chad and I can hit the house hard and get some good decluttering done. Wish us luck!
Oh, and happy anniversary to us! Nine years today. I have a feeling my dream 10-year anniversary trip to Hawaii might not happen when I planned. But I'm not complaining. It'll happen one day. This is a good life I chose. And a good life Chad and I are making.
