I had a long day of priming the rooms up stairs. I was able to get two of the four bedrooms primed along with the hallway. I'm hoping to finish up one of the other rooms tomorrow and apply a second coat to the other rooms once I get home from work. Right now we are holding off on the master bedroom, as I need to do some demo work to remove a closet and renovate the bathroom. The bathroom currently has a 3' X 3' walk-in shower which we will conver to a jacuzzi style tub and shower. Also, the current sink is outside the bathroom, which I will relocate the current wall so the sink will be in the bathroom.

As for other jobs at the house, I power washed the front of the house around the door which really needed it. I also managed to mow the rest of the lawn that I started last weekend.

Other things I am hoping to accomplish this week:
  • Paint the upstairs (3 bedrooms and hallway)
  • Run wiring for the ceiling fans
  • Run wiring for the smoke detectors
  • Hang the ceiling fans
  • Hang the smoke detectors
  • Install new receptacles
  • Power wash the back porch

We closed on the house on March 30th. It needs work, so I have been ronovating since we bought it. I almost have the upstairs prepped for painting for this weekend. We also had the ventilation system cleaned today, since it looked like that the previous owners never changed the filters. I also have new carpet ordered for upstairs and the livingroom along with new Pella windows for the whole house.

Morgan was also born at 12:31 am on Tuesday, April 7th at the Reston Hospital. She weighed in at 7lbs 7oz and 20in long.

I know it's been quite a while. We have been quite busy in the last 1 1/2 years. We are now living in Northern Virginia, and loving every minute of it. Lynn and I have both finished our Masters through RIT, and I am 2 semester into my MBA at Syracuse University. Maegan is doing well, and is now 3 1/2 years old. We are also expecting our second daughter, Morgan, in mid April 2009. To have room for the new addition, we are also actively looking to buy a house, with the hope of closing on one by April 1st.
