It's true

We finally closed, we signed the papers yesterday and we should have the keys in our hands tomorrow. I say should because the sellers bank has been super slow about processing the paperwork, so I am not going to get overly hopeful. But, if they do manage to get us the keys on time like reasonable business people then we will be taking full advantage of this long weekend to get started painting. I know the excitement over this will wear thin soon after painting a room or two, but right now I am beyond thrilled to get things pulled together.

We have a lot of stuff that needs to get done before the house is livable, number one on the list being carpet replacement. Things are set up for that next week, and then another week will pass before they come back with our nice, new clean carpet. We will fill that time with painting, painting...and more painting. It's a five bedroom house, we have a lot of rooms to paint.

On a separate note, FIL's surgery went wonderfully. They *hopefully* found what they believe was the source of all his recurrent infections, a little hole in his intestine. So when they went back in to hook things back up they took care of that too. He should be in the hospital for at least the next two days and then he should be out and about. Bag free. It's big news around here. We are just so relieved that things went well and that so far he seems to be recovering well from it all. We forgot just how stressful surgery can be.

And to keep the cute rolling, here's the kiddo playing with a car my grandpa made for me when I was little. MR *hearts* cars and all things that go vroom vroom. It's pretty fun to see him with this toy that my little hands once played with.
