A house is not a home...
My tenants are gone. *throws confetti* That's the good news.
The bad news is they destroyed my house. Sigh. I won't go into details here but just know that I almost vomited from the smell.
That said, I am Johnita on the spot and I've got folks hired to clean it out and paint it, I'm meeting a contractor tomorrow morning so I can pick out new cabinet, countertop and backsplash materials for the kitchen and I'm about to use googlefu to see if I can find a deal on some new appliances (I will NEVER use that stove and refrigerator again. Not ever). He's also going to refinish the hardwood floor in the kitchen.
Then I'll have the carpet replaced and since I'm changing stuff out, I want a new front door, new lighting fixtures and some window planters.
Finally, I've got my new furniture all picked out and I've been walking around with swatches in my purse to match up with carpet and paint samples! Here's a preview:
But all this means that I am making moves to get back in my house BAY-BAYYYYYYYYYYYYY.
It also means I'm going to be broke though I did tell Mr. SLS to snatch $75K of equity out of his house and give me that damn money to fix mine. He hasn't responded yet. I may have to send in my enforcer, aka Mama SLS. LOL!
Anyway, the sun is out and it's a new day and I'm feeling gooooooddddddddd.
