Hey! We didn't kill each other!

Monday, May 16, 2011

On Friday Gary and I took posession of our new home. We got the keys at 2:30, ate a quick celebratory linner at 3:30 and were at the Home Depot not even two hours after officially becoming homeowners.

16 gallons of paint, a trunkload of painting supplies, one bottle of Mr Clean and a new mophead and several hours later, we were in business.

We painted all day, all weekend. I woke up earlier on Saturday and Sunday than I EVER do on a workday. It was thrilling. It was exhilarating. It was fun, for the first, oh, let's say four hours. By the time our mid-afternoon Frappucino break hit on Saturday afternoon I was good and sick of painting. But we perservered because we still have so much to do. And I am so, so tired.

But hey! We didn't even argue once. The wedding is still on! This bodes well for our future, yes?

Wallpapering and then, backing up a trailer, are the two greatest threats to any relationship!

Backing up the trailer... TRUE. Especially when you maybe let someone back the trailer up into the fence. That doesn't go well. :)
