More work...

Thursday they finally fixed the phone, and sent my internet kit. Friday I cleaned most of the kitchen cabinets and lined them. Yesterday I dusted and placed the first load of living room furniture, and moved the boxes to their appropriate make way for the next  Here's a few views...the couch/futon will go in front of the picture window and the tv and antique dry sinks will go along the back wall.

I also discovered that most of my closet is dry wall, and not too conducive to installing closet systems or rods the few studs are in the wrong places for what I needed.  So I hung one 'rod' (a leftover 1x1...hahaha) and today Bubba and I went shopping and I got a portable closet and with a touch of ingenuity, added an extra rod (old mop handle..hehehe) using the sidebars.

I also closed my eyes and treated myself to a housewarming gift to myself. Since the cabinets, cooktop, and sink are white, and the other appliances are black, I got sink mats, a drainer and a wash tub in black and a new black coffee pot (with a clock so I can program coffee to be waiting on me!).

Keep forgetting the bolts to put Bubba's bed frame together...but I did fix it of the support boards had broken, but I replaced it with some of the leftover wood from the carport.  He has an old futon mattress that he lays on when he wants to rest, and Bob's old office chair to rock in and watch the cars go by.

So slowly but surely we are getting there. Tomorrow I hope to run some of our clothes down, and a load of the breakables.  Then we shall see...Tuesday afternoon we get television, and either Tuesday or Wednesday they should have a UHaul for us. That should help with the furniture that is left.  I guess we will be sleeping there by Tuesday, or there will be no TV...lolol. 

I'll keep updating as I can!

Mom you are doing awesome. It is hard to believe though that this is the same house. Truly it just shocks me. I am much happier that you will be in there. Love you.
