Getting Settled

Well I've got my bedroom finished and mostly moved in! Just working on everything else. But I have no Internet yet so bear with me as I work on getting everything together! Pictures coming soon :)

exciting news & a little help please :)

Drumroll please...


Don't laugh at my drumroll, it works ok!

I have a closing date!
THIS FRIDAY at 2:00!!
I'll do one last walk through at 1:15.

I've called to get the electricity switched that day to my name.
I'll go get the water scheduled tomorrow.

EEK! I can't wait!


Ok, on to my dilemma...

I'm trying to decide what I want to do in each room.

Now here's the tough one... the living room.
(sorry for the blurry quality... it's from my iPhone)

AHH! Paneling!
What to do with it??

It's all along that side wall to the left and the back wall behind where I was standing.

My dad says I should consider leaving it along since it's "higher end paneling".
It has the wood groves and grains.
I didn't even know you could consider any paneling "higher end".

What do you guys think?

Should I leave it alone?

Paint over it?

Attempt to fill in the grooves and then paint, so it looks like drywall?

Any other suggestions?

It's just SO DARK!
I don't really want to try to fill in all the grooves... that would take forever!
I'm trying to keep on a low budget too.

I've thought about painting it an off white.
Then distressing it with sandpaper to give it a vintage feel.

Coming Soon...

It's been a while.

Ok, a REALLY long while.

I want to thank you guys for all your support during my time of hiding.
I appreciate each loving comment, each word of comfort, each prayer.

It never gets easier. But I'm getting through it all.

I just had to take some time to take care of myself.
I needed time to heal.

I think I'm ready to return to the world of blogging.
THINK being the key word.
So don't hold me to that!

I'm in the process of buying a house.
Third one's the charm apparently.

The first house, the one I bid in March, never moved anywhere.
After a couple of months they kept asking for more money.
No thanks.

2nd house- needed a lot of work, but I was up to that.
But it failed inspection.... *sigh*

3rd house- old, needs a little updating, but very large, in a good neighborhood.
Passed inspection, great appraisal!
I'm hoping to close in the next week or so :)

So coming soon....

My adventures in remodeling!
