Tackle It Tuesday #12 - Stressville

Things are stressful here. Deep. Cleansing. Breath. We're having our Open House this Sunday. We still have a lot to do to get ready. My tackle for today is to keep the kids out of the house so Bob can get some work done.

It's been raining like crazy so the exterior work isn't complete and the landscaper hasn't been able to come. I booked a "green" cleaning service for Friday so that's exciting.

Next week I'll post some before and after pictures of our house. Here's a sneak peek of our house before . . . . can we say 70's!

Wow! Is that green painted wood paneling?

It reminds me of our house. We had 35 year old orange carpet in our kitchen when we moved in. I just can't see someone looking at our house now in 35 years and saying "What were they thinking?" but who knows, maybe the colors we think are classic now really aren't. But the 60's and 70's were certainly an interesting time in home decor.

I can't wait to see your afters!

Allie - yes, avacado green in fact. She even had the pipes painted the same color.

Best of luck!

Wow. That are some seventies-tastic color choices.

You guys are doing great! I know it all must be so stressful right now - especially with a new baby. Keep your thoughts focused on how great it will be on the other side of this!
