We Needed Our Interior Walls Painted

When my husband and I decided to buy a house in a neighboring community, we thought it would take a long time to find exactly what we wanted. We were wrong though, because we fell in love with a three bedroom house that is situated on an acre of land. We found it the first week we started looking, and we were able to look inside too. It was perfect, well almost! The walls were a hideous green color, but I knew that we would be able to hire a painter in Morris County NJ to get them looking nice again.

We made an offer on the house because the walls were the only negative point. Since they were an easy fix, we were hoping to close on the house soon so we could get started with the few repairs and renovations that we wanted done. Everything moved right along, and within two months I was looking for a professional painting company to help us out. I wanted all of the rooms repainted, but I didn't want just anyone doing it. I wanted a company that has experience in painting interior walls.

I wanted a company that is insured and reliable, and one that has a good reputation in the community too. I asked around and it was our new neighbor who had me look at her living room walls. They were perfectly done, and she gave me the information for the company that had done them for her. They were able to do mine the following week, and we moved in right after that. They completely transformed the way the house looks! We have gotten so many compliments on it, and we have even had to give out business cards for the painters, because some of our new friends wanted to have their own homes painted after seeing ours!

Looking at a Place in Bergen County

I heard about this place from a friend of mine. Like me he is a painter in Bergen county NJ, we used to work in the same place and he was telling me that he was doing this job and he found this house near Lodi High School. That is important because next year Trish is going to get a job there, she is going to to work in the high school administration office. This house would be perfect for her because it is not far at all from the school. You could very nearly walk to the school in about ten minutes. I suspect that there might be a shortcut through the woods that would make it even less, if you were interested in taking those sorts of shortcuts. It is not a good idea all of the time, but you might do it if you found a good enough path. At least I would if it was the best thing.

The house itself is a long way from being ready to move in. Some guy probably thought that he was going to renovate the place and make a big profit, but all he did was gut the place and then apparently he got sidetracked. The woman I talked to said something about them running out of money for it. I get the feeling that something else came up and this became less of a priority. At any rate before any person will be able to move in the place it is going to need a good bit of work done to it. The big thing is that the drywall is not in. Of course while the drywall is out you want to do all of the stuff that needs to be done first. Insulation is the big thing.

Started Getting Read for the Holidays

I was a bit surprised when I went to the mail box today and found a couple of Christmas party invitations in there. Of course one of them was for two weekends before Christmas, in the middle of December. Still that is a couple of months off in the future. You can not believe how much some people look forward to the Holidays. Obviously a lot of people who are in business have to think about Christmas all the year round. A lot of the people in retail are dependent on the money that they make in this part of the year. Of course a lot of it depends upon how people feel about the state of the world and their own place in it. If you think that every thing is going down the toilet, then you are going to be pretty reluctant to buy the kids every thing that they put on that list. Obviously it is even more that way if you think that you might lose your own job.

At any rate I have decided that I am going to start early this year. I figure that I will take care of the big things. That means my Mom, My Dad and the girlfriend. I need to worry about getting those gifts right. Other people I have to get gifts for, but it is not as though it is as vital. Of course all of the nephews and nieces are pretty easy. I figure that they will get their choice. I will either give them 20 bucks or I will let them tell me what they want me to get them. I am going to sit down and write them all an email later on today, that way I can have it all in writing for my records.
