Home Sweet New Home!


Well, this is my soon to be new home. We finally bought a house!!! We were planning to buy one for a long while now, but things just haven't been right. Last week we decided that this is it, we are going to go for it, so we had been watching this one for awhile, and liked it, so we made an appointment with the agent and went to look at it. We knew right away that it was the house for us. It's an older home, on a beautiful street, with lots of great homes, huge trees, nice gardens - all the things you want in a neighbourhood. So.... we bought it. I mean, we made our offer on Friday, and it was accepted, and Saturday(at the 9th hole) we signed the documents. Now, we just wait. Till August freakin' 31st! Not my choice of closing dates by the way, but that's all we could do, there was another couple that were bidding too and they would have gotten it if we didn't agree to that date. At least now we have lots of time to plan things, and buy things we want. We have plans to paint pretty much everything, and also change the kitchen counters and re-do the main floor powder room. Lots of work, and lots of money.... Oh well, something to keep us busy, and like my Aunt said "lots of space for all your socks and quilts, and your stash!".

Congratulations on your new house :) Be sure to update your address- or at least where you want your socks shipped. I don't want them to get lost.
