Going the final stretch

Updates on the house and move...I am thoroughly exhausted, so I am going to make this short and sweet.

The past couple of days we sheetrocked the garage, taped and floated it and started on the texturing of the walls. Justin also ran wiring for the new can lights in the garage and they look might nice. Also today we started running all the wiring for the network, phone and video through the house. We also got our crown mouldings up in the living room and! I just need to finish painting and the rooms will be move-in ready probably by this coming weekend.

Leanne stopped by on her way to San Antonio. She was going to the dentist to get her braces finally off. HOOORAY!!!

I wanted to say Happy Birthday to Cinnamon! She turned 13 and I miss her dearly...*sniff.

A Friend is Leaving...

What started out to be a horrible day has surpassed the scales and move to full couth death-con.
I just learned that Heather, who has been one of my closest friends for the last 16 years, is moving away from Austin to Corpus Christi to be closer with her and her husband's families.

Hail Storm April 4, 2008

Early in the evening we had broadcasts that there was going to be a major hail storm in the gill country. What was happening around Lake Travis was supposed to pass by Austin without a problem. I had an eerie feeling that it would be by the house and I was right....
I told Justin that we should move our cars underneath the carports just in case.

Housing Update

Justin and I have been working non-stop on fixing up the house with new paint, crown moulding, garage finish-out, shed gut and re-finish-out, new networking cables, updated Electrical and updated HVAC...whew!

I will have pictures soon, I promise....when I get a chance to breathe and take them.

I just got done with painting the 2nd bedroom/closet, office, hallway and living room along with all the trim. What we need still to do for these rooms is the crown moulding and buy and install nice wood blinds (they had cheesy cream color blinds and this just won't do anymore ;)

We should be installing cabling for the network and phone today. We are going to be putting a central brain into the house (more specifically, Justin's office) to run our day-to-day stuff with. We are also will be painting the Master bedroom and closet today.

Stay tuned..
