Are we there yet?

When I was a kid and we would go on vacation, we ALWAYS drove. We drove to Kings Island, we drove to Gatlinburg, we even drove to Myrtle Beach and Florida! When I was young I remember making up games and sleeping. As I got older I knew to bring something with me to do to keep my mind off the LONG travel time. It was the little victories of finishing a word puzzle or finishing the ABC game  that made the long trip seem well... not so bad.
Little victories are what I have been focusing on for a few weeks with the house, but then last weekend, our drywall was hung. Subsequently it was finished and we were ready for paint!

Here is an outside shot of the house as of last weekend. There is a bit more siding on now.

Moral of the story. Little victories are good, but getting drywall hung and having great friends help you get *almost* your entire house primed then painted in one weekend is a HUGE VICTORY for morale!

I should have a real bed in 2 weeks or less ((KNOCK ON WOOD))!!!!!!!!

Until next time...

  1. I'm impressed. Looks like it's coming along nicely! Btw, we drive everywhere we go. With four kids it is just too expensive to fly!
