Okay, one last post before I head to California.
Remember our hideously mismatched bedroom, and how I was going to make it less ugly? Those plans have been delayed. Indefinitely.
I figured I shouldn't waste any time decorating a space we won't be living in for much longer!
WE'RE BUYING A HOUSE!
I don't mean to scream in your face like that, but MY GOD we've wanted to move out of the condo for almost two years! The housing market was not kind to this type of dwelling, and we only got our exit strategy figured out a couple of months ago. I was afraid to say anything because I didn't want to jinx it, but now that we've found a house and made it through the inspection (which was yesterday), I feel like I can spill the beans.
We're movin' out, yo!
The family we're buying from hasn't found their new house yet, so the closing date is a little iffy, but you guys, IT'S HAPPENING.
I thought we'd have a more difficult (read: slower) time finding a place, because it's not like our budget is huge for where we live, but we totally lucked out finding a deal in a good neighborhood. We went to look at it Saturday morning, found out there were a bunch of other showings scheduled for that weekend, and decided to make an offer the same day. They accepted our number and cancelled the rest of the appointments. Boom! House'd!
Obviously, I'll keep you posted. What have you guys been up to this week? Anybody else hoping to move this summer? Any fellow house-hunters?
