What's outside your window?

Well, it is probably not as entertaining as what is outside mine. Ahh, dumpster living.
It has almost been one month since we closed on our house...only three weeks, though, since we actually owned it and this is what we have done/uncovered...
 Three bedrooms gutted of irreparable plaster, moulding salvaged...mostly, nails almost all removed, and most of clean-up complete. Light is at the end of the tunnel. I am trying to just have tunnel vision and not look around the rest of the house.

 Treasure #1
The Charlotte Sunday Observer from January 13, 1943 with headlines of Stalingrad and Tripoli! We are going to frame part of it and keep it upstairs. I LOVE stuff like this.

Treasure #2
Death and decay found behind the sheetrock ceiling in the hallway. Yay! That's what happens, kids, when you don't mop up the floor after a shower.
We found this treasure when our amazing plaster/drywall crew was patching the plaster cracks downstairs...which now looks like this.

I'm not trying to scare you because Halloween is just around the corner, this is real life. Really, we are living like this. Our bed floating in the center of the room, furniture draped and pulled to the center. 

 Out TV gets moved back to its spot every night, well, because we have to watch Season 7 of Grey's Anatomy. Can't believe I am saying this, but it might be better than Friends. My mom is probably thinking that we shouldn't be watching trashy TV like that...aren't you mom?? :)
After work, its right back to the grind. Our goal is to be rid of the dumpster by TUESDAY! You heard it. Y'all have a wonderful weekend!
