closing day!!!!

a new chapter in our life:
we own a home!

we signed the papers today and by 5pm we should be moving some boxes over to the new home. 

what's next: 
  1. we have to build a fence. 
  2. since we have nearly a month to move, we will remove wall paper and paint this house up.
  3. we need an over-the-range microwave.
  4. we need a new dining table.  one that we all fit around. 
  5. we need to weed the garden and personalize the landscaping!!!!!!!!!!!  i am SUPER excited about this to-do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. we need a lawn mower!  i mean, the cutting machine.  i have some laborers that can push the thing...
  7. we want a new bbq grill, but it's not a necessity.
yikes.  that sounds like a lot, doesn't it?  i am super excited right now though, so i'm going to overlook the expenses that are glaring me in the face with that short list! 

in the future, we want to:
  1. cover the back patio.
  2. extend the shop and build a tree/playhouse on it. 
*sigh*  oh boy i am S.T.O.K.E.D.  thank you, Lord, for this blessing!!!
