Oh, my goodness

Tuesday, November 07, 2017

The title of this blog comes for our DGD’s new favorite movie, ‘Annie.” It also describes how I feel about the last few months of our lives. After our daughter’s wonderful wedding, we found a condo we liked, made a bid and our offer was accepted. We closed on October 26th. Actually we arrived in St. Louis on the 24th after a wonderful ten days with family in D.C. The afternoon of our arrival, we did a walk through before the closing, met with our painter and a friend of DSIL who is retired interior designer. We then went looking at paint colors, new countertops and wood floors. Closing was on a Thursday, Before we left on Sunday, the painter had started after we picked out colors from those teeny samples you get at the paint store, piccked out counters and new floor. And wrote some checks!
The painter is finishing up today, the old counters come out tomorrow and new ones go in on Monday after painter does minor repair over sink. We are replacing all the floors on the main level with wood floors. That is scheduled for week of November 27. From Novwer, 17 - 26, we will be with family for Thanksgiving in St. Louis. We hope to come back and finished getter ready to move sometime around Dec. 10th.. The moving company is coming for an estimate Thursday, estate sale people as well. (We are hopingto leave lots of stuff for them to sell.) and our neighbors who are interested in buying our house are coming through with an inspector on Monday. I am overwhelmed. Each time I feel I have completed either packing or organizing an area in the house, I see soooooo much more that needs to be done.
We also plan to be in D.C. from Dec.18-29. OH, MY GOODNESS

However, just for some happy thoughts and feelings here are some pictures of the new paint and a picture of the countertops we chose. And I will end with some DGD pictures as well.

Gray and yellow in kitchen. Grey is in hallways as well.

Blue accent wall in dining area in living room which is yellow

Blue accents around fireplace because tiles were too close to yellow color

Quartz for new kitchen counters
Now some fun family photos

    CJ I know what you mean. The movers cost me $1500.00 which I think was robbery. I moved 9/15 and I still don't have all of my stuff out of the old apartment. My dryer is still there, someone was going to buy it, but changed there mind. I have a dresser still there, and a bunch of junk that needs to be thrown out. I broke a couple ribs again and have been unable to do it. Of course no one wants to help. My new apartment finally got the blinds hung on Monday and curtains put up in the living room. I had my homemaker do it because I was sick and tired of waiting for my niece who promised me weeks ago that she was going to do it. emoticon

    Great pic's - condo AND family :-)

    You have been and will continue to be rather busy for a while. I hope the big shifting day is uneventful, other than positively exciting.
