Well, thanks to Mother Nature I wasn't able to go on my shopping adventure today :( I thought I'd be good and finish up some odds and ends at home and shop later in the day after some appointments I had. The snow that was supposed to start around 6:00 came around 3:00. A drive that would normally take me 45 minutes took close to 2 hours! Maybe I'll go tomorrow after closing. Which, by the way, TOMORROW IS OUR CLOSING!
My husband also told me today that Wednesday is our last day with internet service. Boo. I'll try to keep up with posting before work in the morning, but I know the next few days are going to be a whirlwind. On to #4 (I can't believe it!)
#4 - Garage Door Opener
I already wrote about the garage, but not the garage door opener. This will be yet another first for me. I've always had to do it the old-fashioned - getting out of the car and opening the door. Maybe I'm just being lazy, but I'm going to love this little convenience. We did not go with Ryan for this because $450 was a tad overpriced we felt. I bought a pretty good one on sale on Black Friday for around $150ish and Sears is installing installing it on Saturday for $130. We didn't save a ton of money, but every little bit helps.
Speaking of the garage, here's a pic. Of all the things we want to do to the house, finishing the garage is on the top of my husband's list. Go figure.
