yeah, must be nesting...

I forgot to tell you, I scrubbed, painted, and organized the hall closet yesterday. I think it's nesting season.

We went to see an open house down the street, to compare their asking price with what we paid. All I can say is that I hope whoever buys that house knows what they're looking at. It's being flipped... the plaster on the walls is done very shoddily, the old (as in really old, they click on and off) light switches are still in place (really, how much does it cost to put on new switches that match the rest of the decor?), the mouldings and casings aren't nicely finished... need I go on? I can't believe they're asking more than we paid for this place. I pray that the purchasers aren't first-time homeowners getting ripped off. If all that surface stuff wasn't finished properly, who knows what's lurking behind the walls?

With that being said, I think we should see some pics of your house! It's about time, isn't it!!!! I can't wait any longer!

I agree about the house, hopefully they will get an inspection. I bet the old light switches are still there because they can't put new switches on old wiring and they never fixed the old wiring!

Have fun nesting. The more nonsensical it gets, the more you are nesting!

Aurelia ~ for the record, you can put new switches on old wiring. We did. ;-)
