    I so-oo feel your pain Christa! We moved a month ago and have been LIVING at Lowes and Home Depot! My DH went to Lowes 7 (yes 7) times one day. It was ridiculous! But, we redid our laundry/mudd room, and our dining room is now painted. We just need furniture to put in it - lol. I'm not sure why he wanted to paint since we don't have a single thing to put in it! I feel like we are just hemorrhaging money, but things are actually getting done, so I can't totally complain. I'm hoping this month slows down just a bit, or we're going to be completely broke!

Its still in the box, but when it’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 toys
      Hahaha Kris! I just saw that BBQ the other day & was like "wow! gas & charcoal, side by side...sweet...but way too big." Glad we could help!

      Ya know, we just syphoned the old gas out, then realized we didn't have any other gas, so we syphoned some out of my motor cycle, put it in the mower, cleaned out the gunk stuck in the blades, cleaned off the spark plug, used the choke & the sucker started right up! It seriously took FOREVER to finish mowing the suddenly over grown lawn. Rafael committed himself to the job though & now it's all taken care of...until next week. Thanks again - total life saver!

        We bought our home last year and since it was brand new we thought there wouldn't be much to do. HA! It's never ending. We live less than 2 miles from Home Depot which I actually like going to (plus my ring sparkles like crazy there) but everytime we go it reminds us of something else we can do so we just put it on the list for next time. Right now we are in the middle of finishing our basement and our bathroom, or should I say my bathroom!!! The only thing I have complained about doing was sanding that was awful. Is there anything you guys hated or really loved doing?

          Yeah, isn't that just the silliest thing? We have a brand new home also!

          I am really a huge hater of painting....and not really the actual application part, but the prep & cleanup- taping specifically.

            Christa, I have house envy of you right now. :) I cannot wait to be in your shoes again! :) I miss that insane home-project obsessed state. I've missed my friend Mr. Lowe's....

            And, I really cannot wait to move all our stuff out, then play "kickball" on the ceiling in the middle of the night to pay back those fuckers who live above us. I mean, for real, tiny freaking people like that should never be able to make that much stinking noise when they move around.
