Stilettos and Diapers: Does that make me crazy? Probably.

5.12.2010

Does that make me crazy? Probably.

Y'all, its been banana pancakes over here.
I never knew the week of home closing would be so stressful. Or that I would have to do so much. I mean, I thought I just had to sign my life away and turn over all the money in my piggy bank.

So far this week, we had our inspection. Then we had a walk through where we put blue tape on any and everything that wasn't perfect.
I felt bad, then I remembered my empty piggy bank and started slapping that stuff up everywhere.

I have set up 2 out of 3 utilities. Which took the greater part of 2 nap times.

I learned that Comcast will take 3 weeks to even know IF they can get us service, and I've yet to find an internet provider. How will I survive without internet!?!

We decided on 3 paint colors for the first floor and bought them.

We went to 4 furniture stores, and agreed on nothing.

My car looks like I live in it. There are pillows, clothes on hangers, paint cans, a hand mixer, rugs, a fireplace log holder and food.

I've been fueling up on fast food because of the intense lack of time.
But.....come Friday, I'll be a homeowner.
We'll be snuggled up on our air mattress with a little bubbly.

Then Saturday, our stuff will be delivered, and all this craziness, will be kicked to the curb with the boxes.

Then maybe, just maybe, I'll miss living in a hotel, and having perfectly good excuses to eat fast food.

I'm OBSESSED. A lot of times there is a lot of junk but there are times when I hit the jackpot. It's always hit or miss. I go like 4 times a week. Crazy, I know. Yay for being a homeowner!

  21. That's very exciting, Molls, the stress is certainly a pain at this point, but once things settle down and you look at your home and the family in it, you'll realize all of the stress was worth it.

    However, take it easy if you can.
