Please pardon the excessive use of parenthetical statements in the following post. They are, most likely, used incorrectly.
These are the shiny new (to us) keys that go to our new (to us) house! We probably won't be moving in until the end of the month but it's going to be fun to clean it (not really, I don't like cleaning other people's dirt) and paint before we move in.
Matt, Leah and I went to visit the house last night and despite the massive amounts of garbage the previous owners left for us (lame, lame, lame) we were really excited to be in OUR HOUSE (in the middle of our street, our house).
Along with the purchase of the house, of course, comes the purchase of many other things. We're going to need a fridge, lawnmower, lots of paint, a few light fixtures, blinds (it's weird that I didn't notice the complete absence of blinds on most all of the windows before we put an offer in), and lots of other small housewares. It's going to be a lot, but Matt and I remain excited if not a little overwhelmed.
Oh and have I ever mentioned that I don't know how to decorate? Yeah, I'm going to needs lots of help in that department. Tracy? Lisa? Any takers? I'm sure I've boasted many times before of the ridiculous amount of talent my sister's posses in this department. Am I buttering you two up at all? If not, let me go on. Tracy, Leah thinks that her Prince Charming figurine (from Cinderella) is Rick. You obviously have good taste, you married a Prince Charming look-a-like. She has aptly named him so. Lisa, you know how my daughter loves you probably as much as she loves me? Please, let me know if you need more buttering... I've got loads more.
