Meet the {Hell} House

On the outside it really looks quite friendly and fun. Don't you agree?

The inside however, not so much.

Hell.

My very own Hell House.

Lovely.

You know those smart people who say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover?
They were right.

Dang gum smart people.

Seriously.

Lots of big changes and repairs on the horizon. Big changes. HUGE repairs.
This is what I came home to the other day.

It makes you want to come right over for dinner, doesn't it?

On the upswing, I'm glad we're finding things out now and that we don't have and children to keep out of the mess. If there was an opportune time to get things done, I suppose now is a good of a time as any. Granted, I wouldn't have picked it. But, I'll deal with it.
When we're done, this house is going to ROCK.

Someday.

Seriously!

Sometimes, it's a REALLY good thing that I can lock myself into my studio and ignore the rest of the house. Except for when I must go and relieve myself. Diet Coke and Isopure drinks have a way of doing that to you. Especially when you down Diet Cokes in 44oz Sonic cups.
Seriously.
Without Sonic tasty beverages, I would have lost my mind. Thank you Sonic!
Steve isn't so appreciative. He thinks I need a Sonic budget.
Bring it On!
Unlimited Sonic Diet Cokes?
Bring it.
Seriously!

I completely understand not knowing what is to come from a house when you purchase it. I didn't expect near what we have had to do to this house to get it halfway to where I want it.

Just think, this way you can get what you want put in now without having to justify the expense. You know it HAS to be done, so do it the way you really want it NOW. When you're all done, then perhaps we can come and visit and see just how beautiful you've made it. Exciting prospect, huh?! Tell Steve when it's all done and we come to visit, I'll do cordon bleu again. Oops...that's right, he'd prefer my cheesecake or some brownies wouldn't he. Maybe I'll bring some fudge with me just to "sweeten" the pot a little. :)Anyway, good luck on getting everything done...soon. Love you both, Mom

Oh that is funny, when we were remodeling, I always had to have a giant Sonic drink with me too! I had them add vanilla to my diet coke, tho
