Last week, we had a consultation with Overhead Door and it went great! We’re going to be getting a very basic model of garage door, but it’s going to have little windows on top! It’s also going to be infinitely better than what we currently have, which is an old, one-piece (even though I will miss the sailboat and seagull pattern!)

Having consultations set up with various people makes me feel like things are moving along as well. For example, tomorrow evening, we’re having a guy over to take a look at where we’d like the island to be in the kitchen, and to look at the master bathroom where we’ve seen some dry rot. It’ll be so nice to have some numbers to work with. I’ve started feeling like we’re stuck in a difficult cycle where we’re never going to move in!

This coming Saturday is going to be a very busy day though! The garage door will be installed and the flooring people are going to come and measure to give us a quote (different flooring folks than the first time…) Also, P and I may take a little trip to Bellingham because, wait for it…

We bought a couch this weekend! Our very good friend J works for DVSAS in Bellingham, and last Saturday was their annual gala/auction. Because of the renovations to the house, P and I had not been intending to bid on any big ticket items, but there was a beautiful couch in the silent auction! It is exactly the kind of couch that we would have looked at buying in a few years (we’d been planning to just make do with the futon that we have). We put our number down in the first slot, assuming that someone must outbid us, but if not, we’d end up with a great couch for a fabulous price! Oddly enough, no one else bid! So, couch it is! Now we just need to figure out a way to get it to our house… and where to keep it while we continue to remodel…
