A Week From Today
A week from today we close on the house and itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s all ours. Actually technically we only own the mortgage, weÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll own the house in thirty years if weÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re lucky.
WeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re dragging our realtor back again to the house on Sunday so we can show BIL and SIL since they wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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 donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t believe I will have internet access so I probably wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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 brotherÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s friends to help us move. I hope I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t regret this because I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t have any movers as backups. As far as IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m concerned if they bail my mom needs to find movers for us.
That same weekend since my Aunt (motherÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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 IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve taken off as my summer vacation. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve never had a full paid week off from work ever and IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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 IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve said that several times already havenÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t I? I canÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t believe IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢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:
