House for sale. Inquire within.

We have people coming to look at the house tomorrow! Ack!

Luckily, we painted the TV room last weekend.

Here it is before...

Don't laugh too hard at the color. It was supposed to be mauve, but it turned out Pepto pink.

Here it is during...

The servant Boy was thrilled to be able to help.

And after...

The color is Butter Cookie. Natch.

So, a couple is coming tomorrow to look at the house. We weren't planning on putting the house on the market until February or later, but these folks are excited about it and they wanted to come look as soon as possible. Their lease is up at the end of May and it would work out perfectly for all of us if they bought it. Fingers crossed.

We have been really busy this week during the evening and so we are having to do some major cleaning today. I'm finishing up the kitchen counters and the TV room, The Commander finished up in the living room and is taking a load of stuff to the storage room we rented. Shorty came over the other night and got most of his room finished. The Commander and I finished it up this morning. The dining room has a sack and a box of stuff I need to sort through. The office/4th bedroom is still a pit, but it is a more organized pit than it was a few months ago. The Boy is working on his room right now. How many Legos does a child need anyway? Our bedroom should be finished tonight and all we should have left to do in the morning is sweep and mop the kitchen, laundry, downstairs half bath, and the entry. And then really scrub the bathrooms after we take our showers. Oh, and vacuum the stairs. That's a lot of crap left to be done and I haven't even mentioned the closets. I think it is going to be, "Here is the closet. You can walk in there after we move."


  1. Wow, is it really getthing that close to time to sell the house and move? I hope all works out. You guys have such a lovely house (from what I've seen of the outside) I'm sure it will get snatched up.

    By the way, I should be on campus Monday or Tuesday if you want me to come by and get those books for Jo. I'll talk to you later!
