Here we are at the end of the week once again - Friday has arrived and it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready? Let's go!
It has been quite a week around here - it started off with finally getting the carpet laid in the office....
Now, that may seem like a funny thing to whoop about, but the first time the carpet guys came was way back on January 30th - and it took three trips and three weeks to get the right piece of carpet to finish this room! But it's finally finished, and now my husband is a happy camper.
And because the office is finished, I was able to do this....
Once again, it doesn't look like much, but that, folks, is an empty storage unit! And before the end of the month, so I didn't have to pay another month's rent! Actually, my husband had a good bit to do with it being empty. I filled up my car twice with boxes one afternoon and took them to the new house, and was planning to get the rest of it (the heavy boxes) the next morning, but my husband stopped by with his pickup truck that evening on the way home and picked up most of the rest of the boxes! I just had to go get the six boxes he couldn't cram into his truck - one short, quick, and fairly light trip, and it was done.
Other things have been happening around here, too, such as beds being made (finally)...
... and pictures making it on to the walls...
But here's the very best thing that happened to me this week. Remember the carpet story from the beginning? Well, after three weeks and three visits by the carpet installers, we got to know each other well. I say well, but apparently not too well, because for some reason I was really nice to the lead installer despite the frustrations of mistaken measurements (not by him) and the wrong stuff being ordered (once again not by him). If you knew me, you'd know that is totally out of character, as I am usually a hothead (just ask the lady at the credit card company that wouldn't change my address for me today just because I couldn't put my husband on the phone to verify that it was ok!) OK, so now you know more about me thank you probably need to. But as the installer was finishing up, we were talking and he mentioned that he was hoping to buy a boat soon. Amazingly enough, I have a boat to sell!
Well, the young man didn't have a lot of cash, but he did have skills that he was willing to barter (in addition to some cash), and now I no longer have an appointment with lots and lots of these...
...as he agreed to do all the painting needed at the old house as part of the deal! He got a great deal on a boat, and I got a whole lot of time back!
And that, my friends, totally deserves a whoop whoop!!!
And now it's your turn!
What's got you whooping it up this week?
What's making you do a little happy dance?
Share! We want to dance right along with you,
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.
Hope to see you there!
