Refridgerator, Range and Mower..Oh My

Well it looks like May 24th is still sticking as the completion date, so that's cool. Although we actually won't be able to move in till the very end of May or early June. Buts that's ok :O) we still have at ton to do. We have been looking for a refrigerator, range and mower, which is much harder to do than it sounds. We have looked just about ever where we can think of, and I do mean everywhere. We even looked in the forbidden store ( Best Buy ). Its not that we can't find anything its that we find too much, and we aren't really sure what we want. Well that is not completely true, we do know what we want in a fridge, kind of?? Its really hard to go in a store and they have like 50 different ranges or fridges and try to narrow it down to just one. We have certain things that we know we want but its not enough to really eliminate anything. For example in a range we know we what a gas range, so if there are 50 different ranges it will eliminate maybe half if you are lucky. But from there we are stuck. Do we want convection, accu bake, speed convection, or just a normal oven??? Do we want 4 or 5 burners?? And some have 2 ovens, which I think is AWESOME, but do I NEED it?? I really don't know what I need. Its just too frustrating. This is a big deal, whatever we pick will be with us for years and years. My parents have had there range for like 25yrs. I think that is the part that freaks me out the most, whatever I pick will be with me forever, or pretty close to forever. Its not like our car leases that we can just trade in if we don't like the car or just want an up grade. Plus its not like I can take the range home and try it out to see if like it. I have to go on looks and what I read about it. But I will have to pick something and I will but, I will also worry, wondering if I made the right choice. These things are a lot of money, and I really don't want to screw it up. At least we have an idea about the fridge. It has to be a side by side. We know we want the water/ice in the door and the ice bucket that is in the freezer has to be in the door, not the top shelf of the freezer, the door saves space. Other than that it is mostly bells and whistles. We did find one at Lowe's. Well I should say we narrowed it down to two, which is really good for us. There are very similar, the main different is in the shelves, but we actually haven't picked which one we want. As far as the mower, we have only just started to look. It will more than likely be a push/self propelled mower, I really don't care what it is, although I should since I will be the one doing the mowing. I think it would be really mean to make him mow the grass after being at work all day and I only work part time. Plus I like mowing.

Other than all that, we ( I ) need to really get on the packing wagon. I just don't know where to start. Everything had been really fun, up untill now. I really just want to get a bunch of boxes and just tthrow stuff in, I really don't feel like going through everything and sorting and wraping, ect... But that probabaly isn't a good idea. So I guess I need to get my butt in gear and pack, boooooooo :O(

Tee Hee Hee

Ryan and I went out to the house today and talked to the drywallers. They are painting tomorrow :O) It took a little longer for the drywaller to finish cuz I guess with the weather the plaster took a little longer to dry, or something?? Oh well, all I know is that they paint tomorrow, it dries over the weekend and next week I think we will get the cabinets, counters, and floor. YEAH!!! We're on our way!!!

The insulation my dad and I added between the laundry room and bedroom#2

can't hear the washer or dryer

My pops is awesome!!!

May 24th!!!!!!!

May 24th is the date ( as of today, it maybe sooner or could be a little later ) that our house will be completed!!! HOLY CRAP!!! I have to pack!!! O.k well I'm not going to start today :O) . But I can't believe it!!! We were originally told the end of May, that was when we were going to break ground in January, but when they weren't able to because the ground was too frozen they moved the dig date to February 14 and the complete date to June, but when they tried to dig on the 14th the ground was still to hard. They finally were able to break ground March 5th - ish, which put the complete day the middle to end of June. So that was what I was planning for, end of June. Now its May 24th!!!!! I'm happy and excited and a little scared all at once!!! These next few weeks, months are going to be crazy!!!!!!!!

p.s. I will post pics soooooon :O)

To Dance

Well that's the answer, yes I will be dancing!! There are only 5 or 6 classes left this semester so I will be going to class, but it is not enough time to learn the dances ( 2 ) so I won't do the show. I am totally fine with that. I will more than likely be able to learn them just not well enough to perform. I am excited but also a little drained at the same time. We have soooo much going on right now and I can't believe I added another thing. But for those who know me it is totally normal. I am not satisfied with life unless I am running around doing a million and one things at a time. Plus this will help me get in shape for Mary's wedding. Who knows I might even get my sexy abs back ;O) Well I have to be at the studio in a half hour so got to go.
