We are Surviving

I told a friend the other day that we are surviving, and that sometimes it feels like drowning, but we are making progress!

James and I are taking a break right now, eating oreos, and playing catch.

So, here's the update on the house:
We have painted nearly every room the wrong color once or twice - we're a 1/4 of the way there.
We are no longer sleeping on an air mattress.
The wood floor is IN in the Family room and Living room - still a way to go.
The counter demo/installation is DONE.
The subway tile backsplash is DONE.
We have A LOT of things to finish before we can move all the way in, and we have just a handful of days left to be out of our place.

The update on us:
Last week was CRAZY. I was rear-ended and had to go to Labor and Delivery 3 times to be monitored.
Shane split his knee open, I sealed it up with super-glue, but he still had to go to urgent care for a tetanus shot.
James got really sick, and had to be taken to the emergency room, and it now on anti-biotics.
Shane left for Utah this morning for 2 days to see his Parents off to be set apart and enter the MTC, and will be on a YM High adventure for the remainder of the week. So, any progress on the house/move has been left largely to me.

In the midst of all of this, we have been having a lot of fun spending time with Shane's parents and Dan, Minna, and kids. We have made a lot of progress, and I KNOW we will finish in time - without killing ourselves.

I am excited to show you the progress and transformation....soon I hope.
