HOUSE

So our house closed in the easiest closing I've ever been in! I think we were out in less than an hour. No snags, no last-minute forgotten stuff... The attorney was punctual and prepared.

And now we're the proud homeowners of a house. With all the worries a twenty-year-old house entails. First, we have to get a water heater (old one's rusting away) and a new roof (looking its age). Also things like fixing broken towel-holders, taking down unwanted shelves, straightening the dishwasher (somehow installed crookedly), finding the whole-house water cut-off or installing a new one, laying tile and/or carpet/laminate. Oh, and painting. And moving...

I'm tired already.

We did get a lawnmower at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago though. So we can cut the grass.

Or rather...ahem...my guys can cut the grass. Luckily, there isn't much.

    1. Yep. The previous owners had these tiny shelves a foot under the ceiling, lining the walls in the sun room, the kitchen, even the laundry room. Must have been for collectibles of which I have none so they're coming down! There are two sets of bookshelves though which is nice!

  3. The reason the closing was so easy is because you had an excellent realtor. :-)
