Living in a Construction Zone

When you think of construction what comes to mind? I think of hard hats, orange cones, yellow tape, big holes, lots of dirt and a ton of dust. While we might not be living with hard hats, orange cones, or yellow tape....we are living in a home with some unfinished work and lots of dirt and dust. My fridge is in the garage, the tile and carpet are none existent, a few rooms are still not painted, and all of the doors are missing from thier regular spots. Except for the front door...it's in the right place. This might not be ideal and there are a few situations that have led us to living in this construction zone which were a bit frustrating and stressful but I love it!
I love that we are finally in our house. We get to grow with this house as it becomes our home. We have been waiting a long time for this one. And while it is going to be a bit uncomfortable for the next few weeks....maybe a month or two... we have a place. Our own place and it is wonderful!

Please be patient with the blog posts since they will be scarce...I will try to download some pictures this next week once we get internet at the house. Right now I am sitting at my Dad's using his internet.

Yea! Yahoo for living in your OWN home. The cosmetic stuff (or lack of) is temporary. Enjoy being together as a family... just like you said. this is something your kids will always remember. Believe me, I still remember doing the same thing growing up and having to go outside to our camping trailer to use the restroom. :)

It was great having you at the house for the weekend. Here is hoping that it "came to pass". The construction zone that is. No more early morning visits. I am out in the field again.
