One week to go and things are going sort of to plan........

Like with everything in life, there are little things that happen to throw you the odd curve ball.

We did our walk through on Friday night.  Took over three hours and we left the new place just after 10pm.  Must say it wasn't all business as we talked about a couple of things off topic, however it was the longest and thoroughest PDI we have ever been through.  Have to say nothing too major, mainly minor issues and one "major (to me)" issue.

It seems that I have ordered dark beige ceramic tiles in the ensuite bathroom...........couldn't remember!!!  Anyhoo, round by the bath they have sealed off the edges and corners of the tiles and it looks as though someone have used a magic marker/felt tip pen in dark brown to do it.  I was not happy.  However picture me sitting on the "royal throne (toilet)" displaying my displeasure with it all!!!  So not sure what they are going to do, but something will be done.  We are also finding that room dark?  So need to look into seeing how we can lighten the room up.

The other sort of major/minor thing is that they forgot to do the rough in for the water softener.  That it seems is no big deal???  We should have a back deck before we move in.  The rest of the landscaping may be in by the end of the month.

Pleased as punch with how the house looks overall and wait until you see the kitchen it's more or less perfect.  If I had one complaint it would be lack of electrical sockets.  "Only" have 4 double sockets in the kitchen, would have liked more, but never mind.  Caved in and paid $300 for the appliance guy to install the water on the fridge, install the above stove microwave oven and the dishwasher.  There are just too many other things for poor dh to do and all that would have taken dh (who is an electrician so knows what he is doing) close to all day to install.

On a positive note my laptop has arrived back home, so all is good in my little world again!!  However on the negative side my allergies are just horrible at the moment.  I so want to pull off my nose.  Is anyone else suffering with them?  I am on Reactine and that normally works just fine, but it doesn't feel as though it's working at the moment.

Finally here is our little Munchkin:

The munchkin's a cutie pie!

I occasionally have slight allergy issues, but nothing too problematic.

Well, I hope they get things sorted out in your bathroom. It is getting close to crunch time! I love the Munchkin's outfit!

Moving can be stressful but how exciting! Your little munchkin is adorable.

All the best with your move! It would be great to move into a new house with a builder's warranty. How fortunate you have the knowledge to know when to hire someone for the electrical work, too!

Your little Munchkin is just so adorable...I am glad you could pay to have those things installed and take that off your hubby. Hope it is smooth sailing the rest of the way.
