June 21st

Finally! June 21st will be THE DAY. They were supposed to pave the roads this coming week, but they got a foot of snow out there last week so it got pushed back. We're having the most perfect weather this weekend, it's hard to believe we had a big snowstorm just a few days ago. The electricity won't get turned on by the city until May 30, so they need a couple weeks after that to do final inspections. We'll do our final walk-through on June 14 and close on the 21st. This is actually perfect timing for us; we were hoping to move in that week if it was going to have to be June. The Yankees are in Denver that week, so that'll entice John to come out and help us! They'll be able to go to a couple games before the work begins. It's been so long since we saw most of our furniture I don't remember what anything looks like anymore. Abby will think it's Christmas!

We still don't have a closing date...

But it's not slowing them down at all. Thankfully, it's been warm enough for a good month now that they've been able to keep working. Of course, now that the city is finally working on our end to get utilities up and running, the weather's been awful for outside construction work. We did find out that once the city's done in the neighborhood, they're going to start paving on our end. There's one other house that they started about a week before ours, and it's on the corner of our cul-de-sac, so they want to keep us happy. We're at the fun stuff now! We finally get to see everything we picked out almost a year ago.

The exterior is pretty much done with the exception of the stone accent. They need water for that.

The interior walls are all painted now. The hardwood floors are also in. The tile floors were supposed to be in in the bathrooms, but it was too cold Friday, so they're going to work on that Monday. All the prep work is done for that, so they're ready to go. The linoleum flooring is in the laundry room now as well. Cabinets are supposed to be in this week!
Paint!  And hardwood floors!

Where did Spring go?

Last night, we were in a BLIZZARD watch for tonight through tomorrow! They're now saying that the worst of it is supposed to be south of us. The weather man just gave the updated snow totals for tonight and tomorrow because the snow is "letting up." Yeah, we're DOWN to 5-10 inches for tomorrow! Last weekend, we got hit with icy rain and some snow. I blame it on the new time change. It screwed up spring, so now we're back to winter. We got spoiled with a good month of gorgeous weather while the rest of the country was finally experiencing winter weather.

Friday's high: 30. Saturday's high: 55.
Spring was trying to Sprung

Happy Easter!

I'm cheating. This picture is actually from last Monday. It's 25 degrees and icy this weekend, so we won't be going anywhere!
What a difference a year makes!
