Here are some of the updates on our house.
We pulled out the hideous bush weeds in front of our house that were overtaking our sidewalk.
First we tried tying it up to our truck, which worked fairly well.
But that almost ripped off our rusty bumper so our neighbor brought over his huge van and did this.
This was our bush that Matt's mom helped us prune down to a little stick bush. It's growing back quite nicely.
Our flowers are blooming and our lawn is doing better (thanks to bi-monthly treatments and lots of watering).
My sister and her family came to visit us a couple weeks ago so I worked like crazy to clean up our house so that her kids didn't hurt themselves with sharp objects, uncovered floor vents, uncovered outlets, or fall down our basement stairs due to no doors in our house. I unpacked and sorted and organized everything we own. It looked much like a real house when I was finished.
So we are completely unpacked.
And we got a couch.
But no counter-tops yet.
While my sister was here we had a party,
went to a Columbus Clippers game,
and became famous.
