It’s true, we’ve joined the rest of the adults our age in home ownership.
We went to Milton feeling pretty good that we would find something quickly. Our first night there we saw a handful of homes and felt pretty confident that we had found the one. We thought about it and saw a few more homes the next day. We wanted to ask the realtor to set up an appointment to see the home we really liked. We then had our dreams crushed when she told us that the house had conditionally sold. Crushed we went and looked at more homes. We finally had an up day on Thursday. It was great because my parents had the twins so we could really focus on looking. We saw 4 homes that day that all fell into our criteria. We put them all in an order of what wasa the best down to what would work but wasn’t perfect. Finally we decided that we weren’t going to wait until the next day to put in our offer. Our agent had to work a late night but come 1am we settled upon a price for our home.
As of yesterday the house is officially ours!! We also have two new to us vehicles. We have a red dogde grand caravan and a grey diesel Jetta. We should be picking them up tomorrow afternoon. We like to think that we were trying to jump start the economy with all these purchases we had to make. We still have to buy furniture for the home also!!
Ian is here for one more week and then he heads back up to Tuk for court and to oversee our move. Someone has to sit and watch the movers pack up our junk. We are also going to sell a bunch of our things also just to help lighten the load. And we’ll sell some things that have a greater chance of breaking and we’ll just buy new with that money we make.
We’re looking forward to the move, the big stressful part is over for the most part. We’re here, we’ve got a home and two cars, now we just need our stuff to show up and start un packing! There are pictures on facebook and at some point I’ll get those pictures on to our other photo site.
Babies are fussing so away I go.
