I'll never see my husband again!

We have started moving stuff into the new house, mostly things we won't need here at the old place.We've met our neighbors, they seem nice and have a lot of knowledge about our house! For example, the former owner was a woman from New York that had twin daughters. She had an issue with one of the bathroom showers. It could not be shut off in any way, so she left the HOT shower run continually for 2 years! Tom and his sweet brother "RAIL" (they all have fun nicknames given to them by their dad) are redoing ALL the plumbing this weekend, the electrical redo is next.  
Tom is just so happy with our new home regardless of it's problems. He has a new pooltable in the detached garage (mancave) and has been sleeping there on an old Army cot. So with all the work to be done AND his love for the place, I really won't be seeing much of him except for my daily boxed deliveries!   
The girls and I spent yesterday painting their playroom a beautiful Tiffany blue, see the room above. Good bye Burgundy! I've also started making a FUN chandelier to go in the room. I'll post it and the instructions on how to make it next week. 
Today I have packing, glazing ,painting and cleaning to do. Better get to it, have a great Sunday!

The details look amazing. I can't wait to see how you put your touch on everything and how it will look.
