Another Saturday...gone.

Was at the condo with Soni today (sigh) feels like it will NEVER be done!!

On the bright side I changed out ALL the downstairs outlets and light switches and put on the plates...I only got electrocuted 3 times! :)

I also put the new doorknob on the bathroom door. Works great!

Now if we can just fast-forward to when everything is done and we are sitting on our new couch watching a movie and sipping ice-cold Coke-Zero's!!! THAT would be AWESOME!

Update on all things condo

I wish I would remember to take my camera every time we go over there, but alas, I forget b/c truthfully, buying/fixing up a condo is STRESSFUL!

So here's the update:

  • Painting: finished.
  • Tile: kitchen & upstairs bathroom are finished...still need to do bathroom 2, laundry, and front door area. Should be finished this week.
  • Upstairs bathroom toilet: installed.
  • Dining Room ceiling fan: installed.
What's coming up:
  • Change out all outlets and light switches...attempted on Saturday...mission not accomplished! It was different from the ONE I've done previously. (And I electrocuted myself changing that ONE!) And the outlets blew my mind! Will attempt again once I have some sort of idea what the heck I'm doing!
  • Once outlets/light switches are changed, put on new plates.
  • Spackle, sand & paint the laundry closet area. We took off the door Saturday and realized it needed some work.
  • Paint bathroom and bedroom doors, install new door knobs.
  • Put in upstairs bathroom vanity.
  • Change out downstairs toilet.
  • Install kitchen sink, faucet and possibly new garbage disposal. If new plug works won't need disposal. Unsure if outlet is faulty or disposal. We'll see!
  • Install 2 bathroom faucets.
  • Hang (once we find) bathroom mirror...downstairs.
  • Install new knobs on kitchen cabinetry.
  • Install 2 bedroom ceiling fans-1 up & 1 downstairs.
  • Switch out window screen with hole in it.
  • Check to see if shower is leaking behind...if it is...install new shower. :(
  • Seal grout.
  • Pick out a couch.
  • MOVE!
  • Once carpet is delivered, have it installed.

Is that it? Not sure if I remembered it all, but I'm thinking after we go broke from all the money we're putting into this place it just might get foreclosed!!!!!

I'll remember my camera next time!!!


Soni & I went up to Arrowhead with the group from our Church Mid-Singles...again! It was really fun! There weren't too many & it was just the right amount of loud/quiet & weird/crazy! We went up later than we normally do, & we've already decided we will never do that again! Hello-3 hour drive!!! Normally, we are up there in about an hour & 45 at most! The traffic SUCKED! We went to our usual Friday night dinner at the Mexican place across from Lake Gregory. LOVE IT! I'll have to post pics along with this soon as I send them to myself from my phone. Got a good one of Sandy's was a whole fish staring at me from her plate! I introduced everyone to "To Go" drinks! Hell-o!? You paid for refills, might as well take one for the road!! Mmmm-mmm!! Then we went home for some hot chocolate & watched The Man Who Knew Too Little with Bill Murray. (It was funny!) Next day we went to the Village and did some shopping...I found some cute shorts for Girl's Camp...and some capri's...Love camp. Hate heat!! :) We had lunch at Woody's Boathouse...and then unfortunately Soni & I had to go early. But, we SAILED home! Loved the Saturday traffic!! Can't wait until we get to go again! October!!
