Sunday Sunday Sunday

I am trying not to revolve every post around this house thing, but I hate to admit it .. my life is revolving around it right now. That and work... but I am not going to even go there.

Yesterday I spent the entire day, at the house. I cleaned. Made some friends at the Home Depot. Primed the bedroom and then painted it with some very great help from Jill. Then I finished up a second coat, and went on to shampoo two bedrooms and a living room in the basement. Some of you asked what color I chose to paint the master bedroom (ridding of the vampire red) ... I am not going to show pictures yet, but here are the names of the two colors: polished silver and calm storm. Does that give you an idea?

I was completely spent when I got home last night and felt worse than I did after my half marathon. I don't know if I am going to be able to do a workout today. All I want to do is finish some necessary paperwork, check y'alls blogs, and watch some football.

Have a great Sunday!

Owning a home is like having a child. It is exhausting to take care of, and your work is never done. I am sure you are getting a workout of a different kind. Enjoy the football.

Sounds like an exhausting Saturday! You deserve to take the day off today!

Marcy said...

Oooohhh girl spill it! It IS what's going on in your life right now ;-)

OMG I remember when we first moved into our house. It WAS exhausting . .all the cleaning and stuff that goes along with it. I know how you feel.

Fun stuff with new home ownership.

I'm doing home improvement stuff right now. Today we have to get the rest of the stuff out of the master BR and office so the old carpetting can be pulled out tomorrow and new tile put in.

I wish I had time to paint before we put the house back together, but I don't think that's going to happen!

Home Depot will may turn in to your favorite place to go for a night out! After we bought our house we were there every other day.

Jess said...

The house will keep you busy in the coming weeks. Enjoy being a new homeowner. Running, biking and swimming will be there when you're ready. :)

Wes said...

It would be silly if you WEREN'T absorbed by the new house!! We know :-)

J~Mom said...

Buying a house is HUGE! There are very few (if any) things that you will ever buy that big. We totally understand!!!

Anne said...

Buying a new house is so exciting...and exhausting, as you've discovered. Still, it's well worth the sweat equity.

Congratulations!!!

Do a workout? Moving into a new home IS a workout! It sounds like you are making good progress though.

Annette said...

I'm intrigued by the paint color names! Can't wait to see pictures! :)

Danielle said...

Ah yeah, the joys of moving...I had wallpaper everywhere to pull down...that was fun. It wasn't difficult, but some of the glue was a real pain!
