Drumroll, please!

We’re buying a house! We went out to look at a few more on Thursday. The first one we saw was very nice, in a great neighborhood, etc. The others weren’t. Then the realtor tells us that the others we’d asked to see were unavailable because they were sold, sale pending, or temporarily taken off the market. So we jumped on the one, made an offer yesterday morning, had a couple of back and forth counter-offers, and they accepted a pretty decent one this morning. Assuming all goes well, we should be in by the end of the month! Hooray!

The timing’s pretty perfect, if we’d waited any longer we would have had to go month-to-month on our lease here, which would have cost more, too. And I’m greatly relieved to not have to drive from here to the new work location for more than a month. It’s one of the smaller houses in the neighborhood, which is nice because it gets us into a decent neighborhood without having to pay so much for the house. Plus, it doesn’t need a lot of work; it’s pretty much move-in ready. I’m just dreading packing up this place. It’s amazing how much random crap two people (okay, mostly me) can accumulate in a few years. Time to start sorting through and weeding out. Soon. Must celebrate first.

    Having been through the moving experience recently, imagine how much stuff you have and then double it. Then you’re about a third of what you actually have at the moment. And yes, it would be mostly your fault for all the stuff. Me lady had at least 5 or 6 times as much stuff as I, even if all the food related stuff was counted as mine. Congrats though.
