Bought a house!

We're still more than a week out from our original closing date (for the house), but because of circumstances we moved the closing up, and as of last week... we're home-owners!

Yup, you read that right. We closed on the house last week, and have actually owned it for 8 whole days now! Though it doesn't really feel like we own a house, since I never get to see it. Sadface. We closed on Monday the 30th, and my husband and I camped out there over-night (after cleaning it up a bit). We have two twin size air-mattresses borrowed from my best friend (who lives right down the street) and four chairs that the seller left us.
Or rather, we have four chairs that we asked the seller to get rid of before the closing. He dragged them out to the curb and called that good enough. The city however, disagreed, and we had to move them or get a ticket, as we found out once we came home after the closing. So, we took them back into the house, and now we have bonus chairs.

Anyway, I haven't even seen my house in a week because I've been so busy with school, work and of course, Passover. Hopefully I'll get to go out there tomorrow afternoon sometime and you know, make sure its still standing? Then I probably won't see it again until Sunday night, when it'll be time to start assessing how much work needs to be done, and what we have to finish up before we can move in.

Stay tuned next time for: The House Saga: Part 1


  1. Excellent. A new house is an exciting opportunity. You can do a lot of things to make it your very own. Glad that you closed the deal and locked that purchase. Prolonging a negotiation can sometimes lead to losing it in the end, so it’s good that you moved in quickly on that. Hope that it's working out for you. Good day!

  2. Ah, the joys of being a new homeowner. We lived on an air mattress and folding chairs for weeks after we bought our house. Unexpected closing costs wiped us out, so we basically ate pizza for four weeks until we got back on our feet and were able to afford all the new furniture since we sold ours before me moved.
