Also! This summer, we'll be painting the outside of the house. College Pro kids will be coming out to seal all the cracks and meticulously paint the siding. We even called some of their references from last year, all of whom raved about their experience. And the quote from these guys was nearly that of the quote we got on the old house with half the square footage (don't ask, I have no idea how that works). So, happy. Now, we just need to pick the colors.
I can't believe that this is going well. I'm just waiting for the bottom to drop out somewhere. But if all goes as expected, Friday afternoon I'll be calling the plumber to get my garbage disposal put in. Wheeee!
