A Week From Today

HouseA week from today we close on the house and it’s all ours. Actually technically we only own the mortgage, we’ll own the house in thirty years if we’re lucky.

We’re dragging our realtor back again to the house on Sunday so we can show BIL and SIL since they won’t be around the weekend that we close. I look forward to discussing the color schemes with SIL while standing inside the house.

The weekend we close, June 30th, we will start painting. I don’t believe I will have internet access so I probably won’t be on as much as I often am on the weekend. I want to get as much done before we move in as I can. My plan is to go to the closing, go to Home Depot to get paint, etc., and then head on over to our HOUSE :yipee:

July 9th is the official move and my mom has said she will get several of my brother’s friends to help us move. I hope I don’t regret this because I don’t have any movers as backups. As far as I’m concerned if they bail my mom needs to find movers for us.

That same weekend since my Aunt (mother’s sister) is visiting from Tulsa they want to visit, take me out to lunch and start this thing called gardening. I heard you have to dig in the dirt and stuff :twitchy:

The last week in July I’ve taken off as my summer vacation. I’ve never had a full paid week off from work ever and I’m SO excited :hyper: I plan to do some work around the house, go for lots of walks on the nearby hiking paths and maybe even see some friends. Oh yeah baby :yipee:

This is so exciting and scary but I’ve said that several times already haven’t I? I can’t believe I’m going to have a HOUSE! I honestly never though this would happen but I suppose I must now let go of my dream to live in Manhattan, drink :martini: and go clubbing everynight :dunno:

    There’s one pretty important thing that you have to do the first night that you own the house, too.

    Bring a blanket and/or some soft cushions with you. 😉
