Progress on the Home Front

Our first weekend as Zeeland home owners went well and I only made 6 trips to Lowe's/Menard's/Home Depot. Thanks to the help of many, we successfully:
  • Turned on the plumbing and made necessary repairs
  • Removed all the carpet
  • Cleaned the floors
  • Replaced all the light bulbs (energy efficiency baby)
  • Ordered cabinets
  • Picked out carpet

  • Cleaned inside and out
  • Painted the family room/kitchen
  • Painted the master bedroom
I like painting. It is one project that you can really see your progress. The kitchen and family room were transformed from a tan to a green. We had some great help from grandmazilla and auntzilla (my mom and Lindsay). They tried hard not to reach for Evie all day long.
The master bedroom was converted from a tan to a blue/tan combo. The debate now is whether the tan should stay or change into white. What do you think?
Cindy and Carissa cleaned and kept Evie away from the zillas. When the fumes were overpowering, the baby got to play outside.
After long hours of housework, few things sound better than a pizza. Thanks all for the help! Progress feels good.

OK, I know I was joking earlier about getting sand to create a beach on your lake. However, I was just perusing Craigslist and some guy has a ton (actually probably several tons) of sand... for free, if you want it... free beach, just transport it in.
