Our new house...

This past weekend was great. Saturday, we went shopping. We picked up some painting supplies and finally found a store that was not sold out of Nintendo Wiis. I'm not really a big video game person, because I can never figure out all the button combinations, but this was really fun. Even Olivia got in on the fun, and actually, she did really well. She tied me one time in the boxing game. She has some amazing coordination.

Sunday, we took possession of our new house. We went out for brunch first at the same place we usually go. Olivia was cranky and tired, because she has this idea that if the sun is up, she has to be up too. So, after brunch, we went for a drive in the country.

Olivia fell asleep within moments, and missed all of the scenery. It was an overcast day, and it was just starting to rain. Willow trees bordered both sides of the road. It was one of those times that I wished that I had my camera, but I don't think it would have captured the entire mood.

We've been busy prepping the walls for painting. The previous owners painted just for the sake of painting. They watched one too many 'how to sell your house' shows. In the master bedroom, they painted flat paint over a semigloss. The paint is literally peeling off the walls. It's too bad that they did paint; the colour under the peeling paint is very close to the colour that we picked.

So, all this week, I've been working, then going home, loading up the car with stuff, hauling it over, and then prepping for painting. It's tiring, but it's going to look so good in the end.
