Moving/House Building Update

We've been so wrapped up in all the new stuff we have going on that we haven't gone out and looked at potential building sites in months. BIL started a new job last spring, Husband has been in school and was (finally!) moved to first shift, and the kids and I have been homeschooling and re-adapting to Bug's random schedule changes every few weeks.

Kids are exhausting, y'all.

But that doesn't mean we're not still on course! Husband and I have been slowly but surely ticking things off our list to prepare the house for sale this spring, including finally putting up some closet doors in our bedroom. We had those nasty, cheap-ass, sliding track doors when we moved in. They were all messed up and ugly, so we just took them down and threw them away...and then never replaced them. Until now!

Before (pardon our mess)

And after! I even got off my lazy ass and painted them!

We still need to put trim up, but that's the easy part. And it's so nice to be able to close them off and not see all the storage and clutter when I'm trying to eat Cheez-Its and watch my stories. Plus, you know, buyers like doors. Doors = good for resale.

Of course, there've been a few setbacks, too...

*sigh* Oops...Bear may have opened the in-glass shades a bit too enthusiastically...

Anyway, we still have a pretty long list of projects to finish, but we're getting there. I'm hoping we can get out and start looking at land again very soon. We're still on track to list the house in April, so...crunch time!
