HA HA...we can relate to all of these stories. We have been in our home for over 14 years and are still painting, decorating (and redecorating) every room. When the house "settles" you will be replastering and painting all the nail pops (huh.gif)!!! IT NEVER ENDS and yes, Home Depot and Lowe's just love my husband!!

Haha, the list will never end!

 

FI wanted to do everything at once, but I handle to money LOL We've agreed to do 1 big project a year. Last summer we redid the upstairs bathroom, this summer we are going to do the backyard (fix the fence and deck the rest of the yard) next year the plan is to renovate downstairs and then the BIG project...upstairs.

 

But one thing at a time, because as you're doing all these projects other things come up that can't be put off (sewar drainig pipe blocked up by tree routs....3 times in 2 1/2 years).

 

Good luck on all your projects!! :)

Oh Christa...girl I feel your pain. I will get better, but it requires serious focus on getting things done. I wish I had a million dollars and could hire help...for both of us!

Soooo not alone! We've been waiting for the new couch to arrive, and have boxes as place holders so we can see how to organize the rest of the living room.

 

We discovered we need about four more bookshelves, one to hold my photo albums, so there are boxes just waiting to be unpacked since there is nowhere to put the stuff that's in them.

 

The people who lived here before us didn't bother to paint over the holes they patched up, so we have to find the time to paint these random white splotches all over the house.

 

I'm sure there's more, but Timm and I quickly found out if we try to do it all at once, we just end up getting cranky and frustrated...one thing at a time is really working well.

haha I think first, you should finish mowing the lawn! That one might not go unnoticed. Unfortunately, I don't think home improvements ever end! As for projects, I know I get really bored with mine and start a new one before the old is finished. Tis life!

I'm so glad you guys were able to get the lawn mower running. I was worried that it would be more difficult because it had been sitting for so long unused.

 

I was just happy to have more space in the garage...well it didn't last long. Joel went out last night and bought a behemoth of a BBQ. Its still in the box, but when itâ€s all assembled the thing will be 6 feet long!! Seriously look at this thing (note this pic does not show the additional large smoker box he bought as well):

Now we have 2 BBQs…guess I see a Criagslist posting in my future. Boys and their toysmuscle.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
