A new year, a new house!

Remember on Wednesday I mentioned being thankful for a new opportunity in my life?

Jay and I are buying a house!! 




I didn't want to say anything until we passed some of the paperwork hurdles.  Looks like we're past most of them and enough in the clear that I wanted to share it with you guys. 




The previous owners have done some major work on the house, so we're hoping that with a few exceptions our work will be mostly cleaning, painting, and wall paper stripping.






So my "to do" list has changed. Gone are the weeding the flower bed and fixing up the guest room items.  Now its packing, cleaning, and moving.
