Moving update. again.

So, the house on 198 is not in foreclosure and will not go to Sheriff's sale. There are 2 owners of this home. One is in prison for 16 years (or so) for a brutal rape and will get out in 2020, the other owner seems like a really nice guy and is owed a large sum of money by the first owner. So, he's calling the bank to see how much money it would take to get out from under this house. We've been working feverishly to get our house on the market...a few more weeks and we should be ready to go. We have quite a to do list:

-take up carpet in living and dining room
-finish the edges of the hard wood floors in living and dining room
-touch ups on the living room paint job (that post will follow)
-trade bedrooms and paint those rooms (as a quick fix Ryan will take our room, twins will take play room, Todd and I will take master bedroom and we will strip out the carpet in the basement, paint the floor and make it the playroom)(this will mean painting all these bedrooms)
-fix stairway and bathroom wall paper
-re-finish molding that Heather's dog chewed on
-basement ceiling

I'm sure there's more...but this list will get us started...and I think if this is completed, we can go ahead and get the house at least on the market. Wish us luck!
