welcome to home ownership

I've been away for a few days... week? Well, home ownership is getting the best of us. I'll post some pictures when I have some after pictures (we are almost there). We spent the bulk of the weekend (which actually turned out quite nice) painting outside (my job!) and digging up parts of the lawn and weeds and reseeding (Jarrett!). This leaves us tired and appreciative of paying someone to do this down the line....yes darling, we will be doing that next time whether you know this or not.

I must say, I am excited to watch this new grass come up although it doesn't look like much progress has been made in 4 days and I was hoping it would be a little faster. Yes, I am impatient. Remember cutting open milk cartons and then planting seeds in elementary school? I swear I saw grass in a day or so. Realistically, we've got another week to go. It also leaves us in the place where we cannot let the dogs out in the yard until the grass is coming up because there is fertilizer they'd be sure to eat (mainly Lincoln) and well, ruin (Lincoln). Walking a puppy ever hour or so because he drinks more water than I've ever thought possible is quite a pain, but the prospect of him peeing on my foot to tell me how badly he needs to go outweighs that for sure. And Yes, he did that last night. It was not pretty. Nor was the fact that he tried to lick the paint and got some on his whisker that took DAYS to get off.

I'll try to get some pictures up soon, and wish us luck, we leave for NOLA in 2 days! Hopefully this cold will be gone by then. PLEASE!
