They stared on our trim yesterday, installing doors and baseboards. They don't install all the baseboards at first, just the ones in areas that are carpeted. They also put in our wooden window sills (which is a new feature that has been added to the Port Royal).

They are supposed to start painting today. Painting usually takes 2 to 3 days so that is how we will finish out the week. And then starting next week we should see flooring and cabinets and the outside of the house painted too!
I debated weather or not to share this next part with you all but I am wanting to keep this blog "REAL". Also I know without DOUBT that God is going to work this out so I am going to go ahead and share so that when He does He gets all the PRAISE!
We did all the things that the mortgage company required us to do - paid off accounts, closed accounts, reaffirmed debts, and saved up our closing cost money. Once we had met the conditions of our loan they resubmitted to underwriting for final closing approval and guess what? Our credit score took a hit (umm yeah even I knew that closing accounts lowers your credit score). SO we had to pay our one and only credit card balance down and get a credit reference letter from them faxed over to our mortgage company so that they could do a rapid re-score and see if that helps our numbers. If it does not then we will have to buy a point (another 2,000 dollars due at closing) and our house payment will go up about 50 dollars a month. As of right now, this is NOT doable on our part. So, I don't know what we will do. We might have to go with another lender! But we are keeping the faith and trusting God that He will work it out. I mean He has worked everything else out up to now so I am going to assume that He will continue to do so!
