19 Apr Certainly No Coincidence
But there was just one little snag … we don’t actually have trash service at the new house yet. But again, God had taken care of that as well – our neighbor (whom we just met last night) let us put out our trash in front of his house. And not only that… he offered to help us lug all of our trash out! I really don’t think he knew what he was getting into… that stuff stank. Bad.
Two rolls of duck tape later, we were done, and our neighbor had a huge pile of rank used-to-be-beige-but-isn’t-anymore carpet on his front lawn. (Please excuse the poor photos – it was dark out!)
Below is the living room, carpet-free. It still hasn’t been cleaned (we still don’t have water), but it’s really not in too bad of shape.
Below is the upstairs hallway. Again, I hadn’t even swept it at this point, but it’ll look even better when it’s clean! And don’t worry, those rolls of carpet in the picture made their way to the neighbor’s yard! I just jumped the gun a little on my picture taking :-)
I’ve also been working on the front door – replacing it with our bargain light and fixing up the mailbox – but it’s not quite done yet. Pictures to come when it’s finished!
