It has been awhile

I have not had the time in the past fews to post.

We have been busy getting dad ready for eye surgery in 2 weeks. So lots of doctor appointments. We have been working on picking out new tile and paint for the bathroom remodel project we have scheduled to start the begining of March. We have also been busy with working on getting the house refinaced to one of the new lower interest rates. We are going to consoldate our other debt. So now we are only going to have one payment a month and it 4 hundred dollars less then what is going out now.

So with the refi almost complete we can cross off one of our goals for 2008. Next on the goal list is to declutter and organize each room in the house. we are going to room by room declutter, paint and organize. I know it is going to feel so good to get it done!

So for the dinning romm is 90% finished. All that is left is to put some china in the corner hutches. I also reoganized the coat closet. We now can fit coats, shoes and the vaccum in the closet!

The guest bedroom has been an on going project for the past feew weeks. I have been going through boxes and coming up with a plan for storge of office supplies and my scrapbooking stuff. We are trying to get the most that we can out of the room.

I am hoping to remove the wall paper and paint the livingroom in April. I would like to add an Expedit from Ikea for Ty's toy storge in there.

Enough about the house. I went to a weekend crop in Jan and I got 12 layouts done! I was so happy to get so much done in one weekend!

I will post them later. I am also hoping to post some Ty birthday parties as soon as I upload them from the camera.

Hope you had a great weekend!
