Me llamo Rocky

You Working On The House Today? (EL-A) Everyday!

Work, work, workin' on the house, thats all we've been doing with our time.  All work, no play.  There is so much we want to do, yet not enough hours in the day.  But, we are excited to watch as things really start to come along.  We painted our living room over the weekend, adding one more room to put together.  It's by far the most vivid room, as we took a chance with a very noticeable green.  As we accent it with blacks and grays and just a tinge of pink, I think it is going to look great and like no other.  Of course, we won't be sharing pictures of that until it is finished. 

We recently added a doggie door to the sliding window overlooking the backyard.  We have been wanting to get one ever since we got Rocky, but when you rent, you can't cut holes in doors..  We are training Rocky with it right now but keeping the little flap door off, so he can freely go in and out.  In a week, we will add the flap and hope to have him trained.  (Our cousin, Lorie, gave us that idea).  So far, so good.  Here is my handsome man showing off his new door.

My other handsome man decided to get his Pride and Joy into the new garage as soon as possible.  He spent half the day organizing and unpacking boxes to find the perfect spot for it.  I know he was losing sleep having it over at the other place, knowing the house was empty.  So, right away on Saturday, we went and got it.  Boy did he look happy to be sitting in that front seat.  And, I was happily riding in my car behind him.  :)  Check out that smile, someone sure is happy to have their baby safe and sound.

The new addition that I got to the house was a new washer and dryer set.  The people in this house before us sold the washer and left the dryer, so we were stuck to find something new.  Lucky for us, we came across a great set on Craigslist for uber cheap.  I was actually quite excited to try it out on a few loads of laundry.  It has been very impressive, so we couldn't be happier with our great find.  Here I am with my "Price is Right" model pose:  (Anyone out there with a long name with lots of consanants want to try and guess the price?  ;)  --I suggest going for $1)
