Up until now I have been laid back and played things pretty cool. Then today slapped me in the face. We went to the house we are buying this morning so it could be measured for carpet and I officially became overwhelmed.
It was pretty gross when we looked at it the first time, but it was filled with furniture and other stuff that sort of covered some of the grodiness (pretty sure that isn't a word, but deal with me) up. Today, most of their stuff was gone, still a lot of trash but no furniture or things like that. Y'all. It. Is. Gross.
I should probably mention that I am OCD when it comes to cleanliness. I don't walk around hotels barefoot. I am really nervous about hotel towels/linens. I have severe issues. I know. That's why our first house and this house were built. I didn't want other peoples yuck lingering in my house. Please give me some pre-existing home advice. Can you get them 100% clean to your satisfaction? Janelle??? I know you and I are on the same page...we lived together!
That being said, this house has so, so much potential which is why we are buying it....but it is going to take a LOT of time and love. Please say a prayer that I remain sane through this process and that all my boys still love me when we are finished. Especially Matt. He is working so hard to get things lined up and fixed around that place. I am so appreciative even though I think sometimes he doesn't think I am. I'll take my camera next time so you can see some before and after shots. We close a week from this Friday on both houses. Then we have through Sunday to be out of this house all together. Lord help us!
