What to do, What to do?

For about two months now Mike and I have been working round the clock on this house. As most of you know,we are putting it on the market and renting for awhile. Well, today is D-day. The house is clean (pretty spotless actually). Eden's asleep. Mike's out working. I feel useless. I think I have forgotten how to relax. The house work really went full swing when we painted the outside (with A LOT of help from an amazing mother-in-law). Not as bad of a job as I envisioned. Once that was done we moved on to a lot of other odds and ends (with A LOT of help from an amazing-father-in-law). Put up white paneling stuff in our kitchen to mask the hideous linoleum that was there. Put a real door on our bathroom. Concreted the broken front step. Painted the hallway, all because of a spot that we were too lazy to touch up when we originally painted it. painted our bedroom. Put trim on the windows outside. Got a new roof (thank you State Farm and hail storm). And our latest project- drywalling the basement. Found out that had to be done to include it in the square footage. Mike and I both felt like punching our realtor in the face when she said that- but then returned to smiles when we did the numbers. So... that's a whole lot of rambling. Just wanted to let everyone know why this blog has remained a deserted place for the past few months (and let you know how exhausted we are). So here I sit waiting for the realtor to come and photograph the house, praying Eden doesn't wake up too soon and mess it up again- and that will become our new challenge over the next little bit (hopefully not a long bit), keeping a house virtually spotless while taking care of a messy little 2 year old. Here are a few pics for your viewing enjoyment! Wish us all the best!!!
