The wire transfer of funds from the sale of our house hit the bank account this morning, and we were rich for a day. Well a day might be an exaggeration because Jeramy began transferring funds to the appropriate places before I even knew the money had arrived. So we were rich for like an hour or so.
The big project on the horizon is an addition to the new house. Right now we have three bedrooms, but one of those rooms is in the basement where I would rather not put a child. For one it is cold down there and far away from my watchful eye (that's right teenaged Jillian...I already don't trust you). But also it has a door out to the one car garage and an extremely small outside window. It makes a great office, but it's a poor excuse for a bedroom if you ask me. And while it is fine to have two bedrooms right now, I would like to have one more kid someday. Sooooo we are adding on a new and bigger master bedroom! It will hook into the existing bathroom and walk-in closet making for a pretty straight forward addition. We have hired a contractor to do the foundation, framing, roofing and siding, but we will finish up the interior to save money since Jeramy is a pretty handy guy.
It is so nice to have Jeramy at home right now to work on this and the many other home improvement projects we have going. He is seriously the busiest unemployed guy I know. And sadly, I know a lot of them these days.
