Going back into debt again.....

October 23rd, 2013 at 08:02 pm

It is good and bad.

The bad....DEBT! (and just when we were $400 away from being debt free except for the mortgage) Frown

The good.....we are doing some renovations on our house....since we are now empty nesters, we are redoing the hall bath/girls bathroom and the laundry room which is upstairs right next to said bathroom.

We are planning on staying in this house for 3 to 5 years, possibly longer depending on many circumstances.

Over the years, we have done many updates to our house....some small...some bigger. A little background...when we moved into this house a little over 16 years ago, it was brand new. Because we had sold our previous house and had exactly 21 days to find a new house, this house was about 2 weeks away from being completed worked out well for us....that being said, we were not able to pick anything such as flooring ect, so over the years, we have slowly been updating it.

Every year, we would choose 1 or 2 things to do and slowly but surely it has come around.

I took before pictures and will take after pictures to share if anyone is interested.

It will take about 2 weeks for completion. They came today and did the entire demolition.

In spite of the mess/chaos, it is exciting!

    It is exciting - when it happened to me I was giddy. I even pulled in condo board member/fast friend just to share that first day when my old kitchen was demoed. I've been getting ideas about my meh bathrooms, so please share.
