Have I mentioned before that I am blessed? God has definitely gone over and beyond; and I am grateful. ;) I haven't updated about our house situation in a while. Mainly because it's slow going. It is coming together and God has definitely provided all of our needs... and some wants... along the way.
ServePro was wonderful getting everything dry! Even though it took over a week, they were super thorough as well as pleasant. It is such a huge difference when you have nice people to deal with!
Our wonderful worship pastor Trevor help Drew put up dry wall in our kitchen... we hired a guy to help finish it, and Drew finished the light fixtures and painted. All we need now is the crown molding and possibly touch up paint and the kitchen (central point of disaster) is complete. Woo Hoo!!
Our pipe that busted is fixed... we now have ice. I still can't believe an ice maker pipe made such a mess.
The plaster down stairs is up. The ceilings look mostly normal even though touch up paint will have to happen eventually.
Our friends Starr and Wes came over last Saturday to start our flooring process. He has laid down laminate before... so we told him we would make him treats if he came and helped us. :) Starr and I enjoyed a relaxing Saturday of school and paperwork and talks, while Wes and Drew got started on the basement flooring. They ran into some snags but after 423582430 Lowes' trips, they were well on their way.
We had a double date with Brandon and SamShe Friday night. They took us out for Outback and we played 'the newlywed game' and watched a movie. Those of you who don't have the Newlywed game... buy it. I got it on a whim last year and have quite enjoyed playing it whenever we have a couple over. We usually kick bum (your welcome mother [she doesn't like when i say anything other than bum]) but the Lomasney's did win one time on a technicality. Just beware that the questions are QUITE random.
This weekend we also had some great friends come help us out! Steven and Brandon were great servants and devoted their time working on the floor. SamShe and Lauren were able to help me sand and paint some quarter round and well, we went to Wal-Mart and just plain relax. It was quite wonderful. :) Stromboli, Cookies, and the game 'Nines' were also in that mix.
Oh, we can't forget some very wonderful people that gave us blessings when we thought we weren't able to go on our anniversary trip due to funds because of our water problem. We ended up being blessed several times to where, not only could we go, but we did not have to stress financially at all. God is good.
We still have a lot to do. Our stairs and upstairs need new flooring, painting needs to be down, crown molding, and that might be it. I will have to deal with this mess, not a problem when I think about how many people love us and help us when we need it. Boy, will I be super excited when it's done though!:)
Pictures of the process to come when I find the cord.
