    It's great the way people always have stuff laying about that is of no use to them while at the same time would be really useful to someone else i.e. the panelling :)

    The excitement comes through in your post April and we are also excited for you.

    Oh yeah $78 for a tub ain't half bad!

    Wow, you'll be doing the fun bit (decorating!) soon! They make you do a 300$ order just to stay a rep?!?!?! Man, glad the company I rep for doesn't require that, I'd have had to drop it by now!
    We'll have to have a virtual housewarming party soon, maybe all ship you some seeds for your new yard, eh?

    That's a great idea Mary. Let us know when you are ready April. Even if you can't get them planted this year you will have them for next year.

    Sounds like you are in the homestretch. A housewarming sounds like fun. Count me in! 8)

    Thanks for all of the encouragement.

    I love the idea of a housewarming. You guys are all so great!! Sunday was my birthday, and the lady we are living with got me a big bag of potting soil. HaHa!

    Once we actually get moved in, the work should go faster. We can do a little bit in the evenings. Now, by the time Hubby gets to school at 6:45 am, then tutors until 6:30 pm, it's all we can do to get "home" in time for dinner. BY the time we finish eating, it's around 8:00 and since bedtime is 10:00 at the latest, there is no weekday work happening.

    I'm hoping he'll work on building the kitchen cabinets first. But we'll see. We'll have the stove and fridge, the table and a moveable island. We may have to wash dishes in the bathroom sink, though, until we at least get a sink cabinet. Of course, we could probably hook up the dishwasher. . . I hope the rest of you are laughing at this kitchen scenario, because the humor is not lost on us, either. :D :D


    About the SU! order. As a demonstrator, I have to sell $300 every quarter. Usually, it is not a big deal. I have a group that meets once a month. We make stuff, they place orders. Unfortunately, because of the trailer, that group has been put on hold. Back in December, I was able to get an order together from folks at school, but not this time. Now I will have until June 30 to sell $300 worth of Stampin'Up! product. I hope to start the meetings again in May. OK, maybe June, but then I won't have to do the entire order by myself.

    Heres an early housewarming present! If you go to www.coffee-mate.com you can get a coupon for a free bottle of coffee creamer to help you with those late-night remodeling cups of coffee!

    We have to hook up the plumbing stuff (water heater, tub, toilet) and get a fridge. Then the trailer will be livable! :-D

    We are so close now that I am getting antsy to get out of our friends' home. I can't wait to be in my own place again! :-D

    It's so funny; Wwhen I don't work for a few days, I get all anxious, 'cause I can't check my forums. My husband laughs at me.
