Lanna probably does not have time to update this, so, this is Matt's update. *This update in no way reflects the views of Lanna and any copying or dissemination of these contents without Lanna's express written consent is prohibited. There, now that the legal stuff is out of the way; We have officially moved into our new house. All it took was scraping all the ceilings, retexturing them, priming the entire house, 2 coats of paint, painting all the wood trim and doors, putting up all new light fixtures and ceiling fans, clean up, move all our stuff in, and clean the old place. Come to think of it, last week pretty much sucked. Now we are in the process of unpacking each room and living out of boxes until that is done. We then have some bathroom repairs to do. This whole owning a house thing seems like a lot of work. We seem to have good neighbors, they have all been very nice to us so far.
We would like to thank everyone who helped us with the aforementioned work, particularly Lanna's family. We sure appreciate everything they did for us. We would like to especially thank Kimri, who saved our bacon. She put in so many hours on our new house, with painting and prep work, we don't know what we would have done without her. I think we bit off more than we knew and she really saved us. A special thanks to Milo who guarded our most prized possession, our flat screen TV. He drove it in the mini van so slowly, he was likely mistaken for an illegal immigrant (sorry, "undocumented worker") trying not to get pulled over or a housewife yelling at her 6 kids in the back (sorry again, "home maker" or "domestic engineer".) Those who did not participate, you missed an impressive fireworks display when Jimmy was installing one of our light fixtures and crossed some wires or something. Maybe one day we will post some photos of the house, once it is organized.
One last thing Lanna wanted me to add: Go Penn State!!!
