I'M BAAAAACK!!!!!

I'm back and I'm no longer homeless/trespassing/squatting...whatever you want to call it. We are full fledged home owners once again. It was a looooong 7 month process of buying a short sale home (pre-foreclosure) and I will NEVER do it again. After moving 12 times in 12 years we have landed. Our grandkids will be visiting us here!
I will have to write out the full story of the MANY miracles that came about to get us here but for now, I'm just checking in to let you all know I'm back. My Internet got hooked up today and I can now rejoin the syberworld I so love.
Here are some pictures from my iPhone that show the first few days of demo. The main floor has been gutted and we are in the process of putting it back together. We've got the kitchen moved over, walls torn down, plumbing redone, electrical almost finished. All in one week. That's with Alan going to work then coming home and working. Ya, he's a stud muffin! Wait till you see what we can do, I know your excited!

I'm so excited that whole uncertain phase is over! Jason & I have been waiting patiently for good news from you. Happy remodeling and the pics of the boys doing demo reminds me of my dad handing us the hammers to tear down the walls glad to see Alan keeping up with tradition! Good luck!!!!!
