Day 2

If I never see blue painter's tape, it will be too soon. Yesterday we worked for over 5 hours taping off all the rooms, painting the edges, and we began painting a few of the walls. WOW! I seem to always forget how much time you actually spend painting versus all the time GETTING READY to paint.

In addition to all the painting, we did our very first truly handy thing in our new house. And when I say "we," I mean my handy hubby did it and I took a video of it and prayed the whole time, "please don't mess up! Please don't mess up!" He cut a hole in our kitchen wall so that we can add a doggie door. More importantly, however, he cut the PERFECT hole for the doggie door and didn't do any irreversable damage!! :-)



We learned we have wonderful neighbors!! After living next to people we don't get along with, we were both concerned about finding neighbors we liked. Yesterday while we were painting, we had 3 sets of our neighbors come over and introduce themselves. They offered paint supplies, moving dollies, and anything else we needed. One set of the neighbors had three kids (one of which, was a nine week old baby girl), which they also brought over to introduce to us. How lucky are we!!
