First 24 hours

I've been a home owner for less than 24 hours, but I have accomplished quite a bit... removed 3 interior doors, removed the little strip in those door jams that makes it look like there should be a door, replaced 4 outlets that were ungrounded with 3 grounded plugs and one GFCI in the bathroom, removed about a fifth of the tile, and replaced one of the exterior lights.... oh, and I cleaned a little. I want to get the other exterior light done today and pull up more of the tile. The closing went very easily -- 45 minutes for the whole procedure. Then I worked really hard on the house. 10:30, I went to bed and slept like a baby in my new house. I bought an old futon a couple weeks ago so I'd have something to sleep on in my house. I probably won't sleep there every night, but I HAD to sleep there on the first night.
