We have been living in the house a month and a day now and today we started the updating. Before today, I've been unpacking and noticing things that I want to change or update, that I didn't notice when I first looked at the house. Nothing is ever exactly as you want. I hear even when you build that is the case. Anyway today we are getting new wood floors. Exciting shit right? Well it would be if it was all over, but no it's just upstairs in the kids room and and the bonus room. The carpet up there isn't marked with a date and time stamped, but if it is was I bet it would be 1995. Which at first doesn't sound so old, but when you actually do that math...yeah it's kind of old.
The updating that needs to be done, just brings me back to these days and this post...and this one....and I start breaking out in a cold sweat, but it's what has to happen when you buy and older house.
Let's hope I stay sane this time. After reading that I marveled at how much life has changed in a relatively short amount of time. Meredith was 3, which makes Noah about 20 months then? I had two kiddos at home. Only two to speak of as well, since I was not even pregnant with number three. Just funny how quickly life changes.
