Where Did The Week Go?

I had plans to do other post this week. I am not sure where the time went. I was busy at work and did manage to get some of the things I plan to do around the house done but not all. Since, I gotten the house I have had my car in the garage twice and it looks like I am going to have to take it in again this week. The first time was new tires and alignment. The second was to replace a fuel filter and a sensor. The weeks trip to the garage looks like it will be to replace the sensor the mechanic left in with the hope it was reading bad because the other sensor was bad. Cars are a pain but I am glad I have one. God has provided the money for all the repairs but I rather be spending the money on the house instead.

I got all my listed books for my online store on the bookshelves. I still need to finish setting up my office and my bedroom. I still have boxes of stuff sitting in my office I need to put in the guest / storage room in the house. For my bedroom, I need to get the bed frame put together. I was going to that this afternoon but I fell asleep after I got home from church. I didn't feel that tired. I guess it was from dealing with the traffic in town this afternoon. Mom needed somethings from the store.

I need to get curtains for the living room. I keep putting them off because of the car going to the garage. Then I keep thinking if I should paint the walls in the living room first or wait to save more money up. I see the curtains as the more important part of the project. I can live with the yellow walls for now. I do not like the curtains hanging up now left by the seller and they do not cover the whole window. I got some paint color sample cards from Lowe's, Saturday when I went there to get some supplies for a electrical outlet removal on the patio. I think I decided on a light blue color to paint the walls but I am sure I will change my mind several times. I cannot make my mind up on the curtains. I will be happy when I get the car settled down and get the focus on the house.

I have been looking at getting some new furniture to replace the old worn out pieces of furniture my mom and I have now. Now that I have my only house, I am looking at things like furniture as an investment and not just a place to sit or put something. I am sure as time goes on Jo Anne and I will have a lovely place we call home. Yes, I am waiting I little for Jo Anne to get here. I am taking care of the important things for now.

I hope that I will be able to get more things done around the house this week. I am making process on things.

Hi Dan, this reminds me of when we moved and all that had to be done. Thanks for stopping by my log and leaving a comment. I have enjoyed my time here.

Denise ~ Yeah, there is a lot to do when you move in a new house. I wish at this time could be focusing on the things that needed to be done around the house not on the car. I am kind of enjoying working on things around the house.

I am sure you still have that excited feeling of home ownership, Dan. So much to do but I'm sure you enjoy doing it. Pity about the car, though.
