Where are we going? Crazy, wanna come with!

That is right, it is crazy time! The house goes on the market in one week and we have a list of chores as long as Long Dr. that need to be completed before that takes place! There is poison ivy in our flower beds as well as Molly's preferred dog bed that removed, the hole in the wall where the treadmill fell, the sweet little finger prints on every window and door and touch up painting just to name a few tasks. Nothing major that a weekend of work can't accomplish. Drywall is up and it won't be long now!

I forgot to mention in my previous blog from today that we will be using a wood burner for heat. This is all thanks to a grant Justin was awarded by the Department of Conservation (???)....there were only so many awarded and he received one of them! We will now be nearly self sufficient out there now according to farmer Justin! We will be on a well, a wood burner (electric furnace for back up in the event of power outages and lazy spells and/or wood shortage), our own meat source (sweet number 16! see previous blog post for this to make sense!), a garden and more deer than you could say grace over! Turkey too...forgot about them and the fish in the ponds. All of that to pat Justin on the back for a job well done; we are really becoming savvy here!

Dry wall: I know you can't really tell what is what, but it is coming together! The girls are so excited and have declared the storage closet under the stairwell "the clubhouse!"


Ok, so the dry wall is up now and it is starting to become real. At first it was just an idea and now it is going to actually happen and really soon. As if there have not been enough transitions in our lives in the past 4 years (3 babies and 3 moves if you include this one) we are adding to it. We are getting good at adding to the mix just when you think it can't get any more hectic!! Anywho, the farm is suppost to be place to live a more simple life. So, here is hoping it will be a nice place to land for awhile because I am so not looking forward to packing up and moving. How on earth am I going to pack up and move when I have three kids to take care of? Lipstick on and chin up as I always say to are the pics of the progress. I am really excited about the kitchen despite my gloomy attitude!
