I had a walk through with the old house right before the signing. It is protocol. It wasn’t the best time for me. I hadn’t slept a wink…well, maybe a couple winks but I was up by 1:00 AM and I was about to start that moon flux. I’m not so perky or positive during this time and if something may bother me a tad…during my hormonal time, it is the end of the world.
So, we did the walk through and all the staging furniture was gone, the lights out, the blinds closed, and the heat off. Cold, dark and a bit stale smelling. I left not so enthused about my old man, Arthur. I didn’t have buyers remorse but I new some work must be done before we move in.
Bali must have seen the crazy in my eyes so he drove quickly to the nearest HomeDepot. There we picked up a big 5 gallon tub of paint and found a huge clearance on Bamboo flooring. There, now we have a solution.
Since then we have signed the papers and received the deed, and with the stress gone I have enjoyed a few nights of deep, long, delicious sleep. I have also enjoyed my ladies cycle and I’m a much friendlier sort of creature these days. When I picked up the keys at the house I had a private tour. I opened all the blinds and walked through. I’m once again happy to have found Arthur and I just can’t wait to paint and tear out the ugly carpet and dress him up with bamboo and fill the rooms with my paintings, plants, colorful area rugs, and furnishings.
Even the outside is planned. We have 5 gallons of blue paint from this house and with white trim it will be so cheerful! Then all the gardening, the fruit trees, the flowers, the vines! Oh my.
But right not this is how Arthur looks. Here he is before his make over. When we are done in the next two weeks I will post before and afters.
