Do you know how you get an entire house ready to sell in 10 days' time?
Well, ya work your butt off. That's what ya do. You lose sleep pondering paint and planning, and then re-planning your attack plan.
And then, you have totally awesome parents who are willing to drop everything they are doing and help you for days on end. Days.
Mom and Dad:
may you live long enough to be totally terrifying behind the wheel. And when that time comes, I will be here to chauffeur you, because I can't ever repay you for your help and assistance.
To Laura, for bringing us not one, but two dinners. and taking McKiller twice:
you rock, sista. I'm so glad we're neighbors. And besties. (She's like, "we are not besties.") Thankyouthankyouthankyou.
To Layne, who brought me dinner and took my butt munches so we could keep working:
If you ever disappeared while hiking, I'd remain with the search party even if it started raining. We are that close. Thank you.
To Tif, who brought us a treat one day, and then fed me and all my workers lunch the next:
if I were a zombie, I would totally eat you last. Thank you so much.
To my lovely sister in law, Rachael, who took my children not once, not twice, but thrice:
I appreciate your friendship so much that if we ever got into a fist fight I'd totally try my best to avoid your face.
To Janelle, who came and painted the master bedroom, and then left some awesome snacks that were our sustenance for a 10 hour period:
you must know me well enough to know how much I hate painting. And that means a lot. Thank you.
To my brother Britton and his lovely wife Rachel:
your contribution of the main bathroom's lovely vanity completes the space.
"You.Complete.Me." -the main bathroom
To Kayla and Aubrey and Kaitlyn and Kristy: all those staples out of the floor means so, so much to me. Thank you!
I want you to know that I picked the carpet for this house with moms in mind. Remember that my own house has "The Carpet Satan Reserves For Bad Moms In Hell". That's the actual title of my carpet color. I thought it was a little long, but whatever.
So this carpet? Not too much shag, not too little. It is not light cream/white, and it speckled. I had a mom's back on this. Double pound to the chest, mommies.
So! Anyone need a house in a great neighborhood, on the golf course, with practically all new stuff? I mean, brand new water heater, new garbage disposal, all new faucets, appliances, flooring, etc., etc., etc.? I'll even put in a built-in spice shelf for ya. Or some box molding in the living room. Think on it.
