Just Mowed My Lawn!

I just mowed my lawn - my lawn! That was a strange feeling....however, I can't really can it a lawn. It needs some work in removing weeds and is dead in a few locations. But I will figure it out.

Buying a house!

So you buy a house and get the key. You pick the moving day and get some fine individuals from church to help you out. You pack up the moving van and drive over to the house. You expect that all is well and that by the end of the day you will be sleeping in your new home. WRONG!!!!

In the case of the Holmstrom's first home the condition in which the home was left was so bad that we were delayed moving in by 9 days! 9 freakin' days! I mean these folks didn't even bother to lift the toilet seat and clean off there pee stains. Not that I was or will ever sit on the toilet until I purchase new seats but come on people, give me a little effort.

Finally however, Megan and I are moved in. When will we finally be finished unpacking....that is a whole other tale to tell.
