Welcome Home!

Sally has new digs!  That’s right, I bought my first home.   I haven’t moved in yet, and well technically I don’t own all of it (a bank owns a large percentage until I pay off the mortgage), but it’s mine now dammit!  I am having some work done before I move in this weekend.  I wanted the ceilings redone (ugh I hate popcorn ceiling, what a cheater’s way to finish a ceiling, and so 1980!) and I also had to have one wall repainted from some damage from the previous owner.  Otherwise the place is perfect and didn’t need anything else.

Update:  I stopped by yesterday evening to check on the work and the owner of company was there to check it out too. Turns out the ceiling guys got paint everywhere, took out all the nails, and patched up all the holes.  They thought they were painting ALL of it!  So, now they have to match ALL of the paint (which I already liked) and paint the WHOLE place.  Free paint job that I didn’t really want.  And now I have to make my own holes to hang pictures.  It’s kind of bittersweet.  Something I should be happy about, but is really just a pain for everyone.

I’m moving this weekend.  So, to recap, I am running the 15k in the morning, then moving in the afternoon.  Don’t worry I’ve hired people to help, but you can bet I am looking forward to my massage scheduled next week! Then I’m on the downhill for the big race!! And the uphill to finding more furniture for the new place!

And one more thing.  I just love my grammar, that is no shocker to anyone.  So, it shouldn’t be any shock when I was excited to find out that today is:

Happy Punctuation Day!

You know my nerdiness is adorable!
