It's Not Easy Bein' Green

Here's a tip for any of you who may in the future have a hand in the building of your house. When you go to the little home studio to pick everything that will go in it, take pictures. Take pictures of everything you choose. That way, when they do what you chose, you don't look at it and say, "...There is NO way I would've EVER chosen that."...only to go BACK to the studio and look up what you chose...and see that you DID choose that....and then you look like an idiot.



Our house is green.



And we chose that.


And actually...it's growing on us.

I'm not embarrassed to say that I am wicked excited about this.

...Ok...maybe a little embarrassed.

Housey House

So, I'm still unemployed. ...Just...you know...FYI.

But let's talk about happy things, eh? Let's talk about how far along our house is coming! It's looking like we'll be in it in roughly 5-6 weeks. It's getting so fun to go visit it a few times a week, see what they've been doing.

Here's a shot of the outside:



I know it looks all dirty...they still haven't painted the outside.

Here's a shot of our kitchen at different stages:







There's flooring in the kitchen and bathrooms and most of the painting's been done (you can see some touchups are needed), the driveway's been poured, and at least all the cabinets are in.


Seriously, the closer it gets, the more excited I get. Aside from the fact that not having a job won't be a great thing when it comes time to start paying the mortgage, this time off of work has given me time to start packing. I've started on our guest room (read: junk room) and got 11 boxes packed up today. Hopefully I'll be able to get most of the nonessential things packed before I start working again....which will be real soon.........real real soon...........*sigh*
