On Monday we received the keys to our new house!! About ten minutes later we were ripping out carpet (some of the old carpet pads looked like animal hair – I was totally grossed out) and knocking out a nasty greenhouse (long story). We were done by 9:00 BUT still managed to wake up a disgruntled next-door neighbor who thought our parents were letting us help them out. Nope, we’re the owners! I think he’s used to 93 year-olds living in the house. Our friends, David and Susanna, very sweetly decided to come help us out.
The floor guys started refinishing the floors Tuesday morning. The roofers started today. Telfer is done reading EKG’s and also pretty much done with his medical school career. He is now tile-man extraordinnaire. Very impressive – well, he hasn’t actually tiled yet, but I think that he will truly earn the title. He is laying backerboard this morning and afternoon. We are moving out of our apartment (which is infested with earwigs) and moving into the garage (literally) of our new house tomorrow morning.
