Homeowners AT LAST!!!!

Friday, December 12, 2008

Finally, after all the frustration, hard work, nervousness, ups and downs, and a lot of money, we are homeowners!  We had our closing today at 11:30 am.  And of course we didn’t know the final amount to bring to closing until 9:30 am…nothing like cutting it close!  Even now, after signing all the paperwork, it still seems surreal.  But the house is ours, and now all we have to do is make it a HOME!  And having each other there will make it that already, and then we have a lot of time to get the house to look exactly how we want.  Lots of weekend and day projects.  Pictures to come soon.  It will be a busy day tomorrow since we move at 8:30 in the freaking morning.   And then I’ll probably have to work at night for 12 hours.  I am NOT looking forward to that at all.   But that’s life, and I’ll get through it.  At least I’ll have a new house to come home to!!!

First Snow

Sunday, December 7, 2008

Yesterday evening was the first snow of the year!  And it was a beautiful one at that…soft and fluffy, and only about an inch 🙂

Last night Kimm and I had our holiday get together with our old friends from Mass Relay and it was so nice to catch up with everyone.   And it was a great time to share with them that our closing date for our house is still on schedule for this next Friday (gulp!!!)  We’ve been packing away, and making lists of all the things we’ll need to do before and after we move in.  We’re scheduled to move in next Saturday, which just happens to be my weekend to work (and unfortunately I was not able to get that Saturday off).  So at this point, we’ll be moving all day and I’ll be working 12 hours that night…argghh…UNLESS I happen to get cancelled which would be a WONDERFUL suprise.  I’ll just have to wait and see.

Right now it just feels kind of surreal knowing that in one week from now, I will be waking up in a completely different city.  I CAN’T WAIT!!  Once we move, pictures will be posted, I promise.  We’ve already got a housewarming get-together planned for sometime in January, which will give us enough time to get things organized.  Because you know, the first order of business once we get moved is for us to get our Christmas tree and DECORATE!!!
