Thursday Thirteen on the 13th!!

Thirteen reasons I will be glad for my new house to be completed.

1) I will finally be able to unpack boxes that have been unopened in over 2 years. I will open all of my wedding presents and actually start using them.

2) We will have a fresh start in a brand new home, and try to put the past behind us.

3) I won't have to write that riduculously high rent check every month and I will get rid of the double payments (rent AND construction loan payment).

4) I will have a garage to park in rather than a garage full of boxes.

5) I will finally have the basement that I have always wanted with the space to start my own business.

6) We will hopefully be moved in by Thanksgiving so we can use our beautiful china and have all of our friends over to celebrate with us in our new home.

7) I will put up a tree and decorate for Christmas for the first time in three years. We will also resume the "Christmas is Freakin' Over Party" in January.

8) I will have a closet that I can hang my clothes in (my double-hung closet rack came crashing down this weekend with all my tops, pants and shoes in a heap on the bottom of the closet)

9) I will live in a house that doesn't have 1980's wallpaper and borders.

10) I will be able to use my own refrigerator, washer and dryer.

11) I will start cooking and entertaining again.

12) I will have guest bedrooms that don't look like department stores with boxes lined along the walls and stacked to the ceiling that sometimes come crashing down on guests (Grandma).

13) I will find things that have been missing for years, put things in their proper places and finally feel organized again.

LA- I just read your blog from November 8th. Are you talking about the death of Elizabeth Shuford? She went to my church and had 2 young children. It is very sad. She was very active in all aspects of the church. I didn't know she was a member at Mike's club.
