We've been especially busy lately, preparing our home for sale and trying to find a place in Michigan. I flew up to Kalamazoo a week ago to approve a home, and after negotiating a price, our offer was accepted (contingent on the sale of our home). We spent this weekend, and as much time during the week as we could, painting and cleaning. The front rooms and hallway look so much brighter with a new coat of paint! I wish we'd done it a while ago so we could have enjoyed it longer.
