The big old water tank is GONE! We were so sure we could use it, but it just wasn't going to happen. So listed it on freecycle and they came and towed it away today!
Brian has been feeling better so we have been able to get a few things done. Slow but sure! He finished putting down all of the sub floor in the kitchen, and did a little bit more plumbing. I have been following behind painting and insulating and getting things moved and cleaned up so the sheetrockers can do their job. We are going to finish the kitchen ourselves, so we can get the floor down and start putting cabinets up. The time is flying by!

Heather and Zach came down for a few days and we got an amazing amount of projects done, considering that we were chasing a 2 year old around too!
Heather mowed and weed-eated just about the whole lawn. I spread some more dirt and grass seed, there are a few places that just don't want to grow! Then both of us cleaned off the big stump and weeded and barkdusted and really made it look nice! Got rocks put down along the new trees we planted too...it is really looking good!
Then we went up in the attic and put down some insulation and boards and moved all the seasonal stuff up in the attic. Wow! Finally some room to move! So nice to have some storage up there. Lot's more to go up there.
We have hired a guy to do some sheetrocking in a few of the rooms. We just don't have time to get it done before Heather and Adam's wedding. He will be here in a few weeks, so we need to get a lot of things ready and out of their way! Always something to do!!

The ceiling in the kitchen is done! We finished it last week. It really looks nice! Since then we have been doing more yard work, painting and insulating. We also had a new electrical panel installed. Then Brian had another pancreatic attack, so we are going to get some help to finish some of the sheetrocking so we can get the cabinets up and the rooms painted. Just a little over 2 months until the wedding. EEK! We can do this!
