I know you and Tim have been at it for a while now. Also, Phoenix is quite a culture shock from Alaska and Seattle! I tell Dianne all the time, the remodeling on the house stops the day you move. Until then it never really ends.

We are hoping to start and finish phase #2 by May of 2016. Time will tell if that really happens. 🙂

Then again, we had to make some upgrades to qualify our house for the FHA loan we were getting. While we were at it, we did some cosmetic repair too: having all the walls painted (one room was, for lack of a better term, an angry robin-blue color), the outside painted and tile installed. The house looked pretty bad, and I had to stay in guest house while it was being completed. Meanwhile, Tim was up in Washington helping his parents with the move.

I was just glad when we had no paint fumes and toilets again.

Things should settle down for us over the next couple weeks!
