Well, the house looks more like a house these days. It has felt paper and ice/water barrier, it has windows, doors and duct work. The electrician has made his marks for rough in. The plumber will be out this week or next to mark rough ins for plumbing. The roofing material should be arriving soon as well as the bricks. The porches need to be built, as well. I am getting more and more excited as it moves along. How soon to move in? Could be end of summer, but most likely just before Thanksgiving. Let's hope for the earlier! I really hate moving in the winter.
We have decided to paint the interior ourselves along with a few friends? (Anyone else want to join us?) Free food and beverages along with good conversation will be the pay! Thanks to all of you who are going to help! We love you.
Taking a break this weekend and going glamping. Yes, I said glamping - google it if you don't know what it is. I can hardly wait. We are going with our good friends Amy and Aaron and their two boys. All told we will have 7 people and 5 dogs - what a herd. Campfire cooking, s'mores and gold panning. Sounds like fun! We don't really expect to find any gold, but it's fun trying. Hopefully the rain in the forecast won't last to long and the creek won't come up too much. (Calling for an inch or more tonight into Friday) Biting my nails.
Hubs is at home trying to get the fishing gear ready - he's had more than a month to get prepared, but true to his nature, waits until the night before. I have just about everything else ready to go, just have to pack it up. Everything is staged in the corner of my bedroom. Looks like a campers garage sale waiting to happen.
Speaking of garage sales - going to have one when we get back from glamping. We've accumulated at bunch of stuff a auctions that we just don't need. Those of you who know where we are living - watch craigslist for the dates.
In other news, today is hubby's last day of work at Traderbaker's Vendor Mall. He's fed up with it. He's going to set up at flea markets and such to make up for his piddly lost income. Hopefully he can make a few bucks here and there. Biting my nails, again.
Not much more to add. Just about time to go home from work. It was a pretty slow day today. Having company dinner tomorrow evening - Red Lobster - bosses choice. Yay, shrimp.
Have a great weekend and see you next week!

Here's the latest photo of the house. The front door looks like it has a post right in the middle of it, but that is a porch post about 5 feet out. The funky box next to that is the chimney. The room that sticks out funny is the pantry/1/2bath and laundry room. I am hoping the workers were able to put the black paper on the roof today. The contractor said they should be starting the brick any time. We meet with the electrician on Tuesday for electrical placements. The doors and windows have been ordered. Paint and trim has been picked out. I have to go to the home store to pick out paint for the exterior doors. Thought they were going to be stained, but was informed they were not!
