Condo update

Hello All,

I am hijacking 9 and Chani's blog for the express purpose to say thank you all for the congratulations and good tidings on my condo. It's been a long road to get here and I can almost see the end!

That being said, there's a bit of remodeling to do and a lot of wall paper stripping and painting. So much work! Plus, my mom really disliked my kitchen appliances and joined me in my dislike of the kitchen cabinets, so it's going to get remodeled. Sigh... This means about one or two more months before I can completely move in. And, I definitely don't want to take 9 and Chani there while construction and painting and remodeling go on.

Thankfully, I have my dear parents who are spending some of their well-deserved retirement in helping their only daughter get the place of her dreams. While I am at work, they shall be wallpaper stripping and calling in people to help me get my place into top shape before I move in. And my mom will put up with my stuff in her living room for just a bit longer.

On the plus side for my parents, they get about one to two more months with their grandcats.

I will post pictures of the condo in its current condition on through the remodeling and finishing. I promise not to hijack 9 and Chani's blog for this all week. It is after all a kitty blog and not a condo remodeling blog.

So, I apologize for the long pictureless post and for going on about my life instead of my kitties. But, they understand and I hope you do too.



  1. You have great parents, Marlene, and you will end up with a great condo!

    We hope all the work goes smoothly!

  2. You are lucky to have such great parents helping you. It will be wonderful when your condo is all done. Can't wait to see some pictures!

  3. Although it is much work right now it will pay off in the end. What are two more months when you get the place to really look like you want it! It is so great that you have your parents to rely on and for such hands-on help. Many purrs to them!

  4. This is exciting news. To see you get the home of your dreams and watch you remodel it to your own tastes.

  5. Yep, we understand too, we're anxious to see the before and after pics!

  6. Oo, a kitchen remodel! That is VERY exciting. Kitties, you're going to have a lovely new home :)

  7. I'm just catching up on all the news...yay for the new condo and yay for your lovely parents to help get it in tip top shape :) I know how much work it is, but it'll be so worth it!
