House Update

So, I've owned my Sunnymeade for three weeks now, so let's see what I've managed so far (in no particular order)...

I bought two cart loads worth of stuff (plus a fridge) at my local Home Depot...

(I should get a visit from Tony Stewart - I think I paid his salary this week with my purchase)

February 1

We painted three rooms in three days...I love having colour in my house for the first time...

I helped Dad put in my new mailbox, though he did the yeoman's work of it...

February 3

I've taken, conservatively, 27 million baths in my ginormous whirlpool tub...

February 6

I bought my first appliance (pizza not included)...

Whew!

I survived not one, but two ice storms in the new digs (even closed the library for two days, subsisting on my meager foodstuffs until the roads cleared. Note to self, move food FIRST!)...

February 12

The whole fam convened to move all my stuff from Highland Cottage to Sunnymeade...

February 16

I bought a new (much, much) bigger desk for my study...

February 20

I spent an obscene amount of money here on things like light bulbs and detergent and other assorted "stuff for the house"...

February 23

I completely cleaned and abandoned Highland Cottage *sniff*...

And I'm completely unpacked! Woot! The garbagemen loved me for this, I'm sure...

Not bad for three weeks work, eh? ;-)

I claim the bed not by the window in the pink room. ;-)

Wait. Home Depot? You bought stuff at Home Depot? And, yet, you claim to be a Jimmie J fan? Please explain yourself.

I know, I know...but I have reasons. *hangs head*

(In my own defense, Tony IS from my hometown, so I gotta give him some lurve...)

Basically, Tony will give you a much, much bigger line of credit than Jimmie, and knowing how much I had to buy (including the fridge), I went there instead. But I know I'll buy all the "pretty bits" at Lowe's, as they have more residential gear.

I hope Jimmie and Chad will forgive me...

The colors are awesome!! Especially the study turquoise. I'm jealous. ;)

Hey Pat,

Cut her a break. I'm betting she was smarter than a certain someone aka me and didn't wear her Lowes hat into the HD!

I was so embarrassed but stoopid Lowes didn't have the air filter I needed LOL.
