Have you ever been so happy you had to scream? I at least had the composure to keep it in until everyone had left.
All is definitely not finished though... there are several walls that need color changing, our dining room table and chairs are still in storage, we purchased a sectional and t.v. this weekend that we won't be moving in for several more weeks, and there are still a few wall hangings that needed a drill, level, stud finder... you know, all of those little things weforgot to bring.
Just a few quickies though:
I love my new rugs I ordered from Overstock.com!
I bought them with every intention to paint them, but once we got them home, I found them perfect as is. I believe a little English Oil may give them that extra oomph and I bought two different shades at Target tonight to try out on them. Since I'm back in east Kentucky and the lamps are still in central KY - I'll have to wait the three weeks until we're back again to decide on a lamp shade and perfect these babies. I can't wait!
And we bought this sectional on the way home tonight. We found it yesterday, pretty much made the decision we'd love to have it, but then took the night to sleep on it before "pulling the trigger" as Nick says with big purchases.
Though this evening, it just so happened that the Cards were playing while we were in Haverty's making our big purchase - I've never seen Nick "pull the trigger" so quick to get out of there and watch the last 30 minutes of the game at Rafferty's. Their loss was probably the only time I saw him unhappy this weekend. Poor Nick :( Poor Louisville :(
We have a lot of praises going up to the Big Guy right now, but they are all just things. I could do without all of them and live a perfectly happy life with my family and friends. We realize what is truly important in our lives and try to keep our reality in check. If you could take the moment, please remember my mom in your prayers as she goes in for a follow-up MRI after a cat-scan of her brain showed something abnormal. We appreciate your prayers on her behalf more than anything!
