Welcome home.

holaWe did it! We closed on a house, yesterday. It was built in 1970 and is pretty charming, in my humble opinion. It’s needs a bit of cosmetic work (some painting, landscaping, etc), but nothing extreme. I’m now a proud home-owner. Totally debt-full.

Forgive my absence here and on Twitter. Yesterday was such a long day. So, emotionally exhausting I don’t think I’ve recovered yet. The rest of the week will consist of packing and moving.

The house is close to Jason’s work (which is about 40 minutes away from where we live NOW), so he’ll be taking boxes with him every morning. We learned that if you remove the car seats and lower down the backseat, there is a plethora of room! He fit quite a bit of stuff back there. One time, he picked up a chair I found on craigslist. It’s a vintage La-Z-Boy rocker in golden yellow. It’s practically in mint condition! I can’t wait to show you.

Also, my father has a truck, so he’ll be helping to take some big things. Basically, this is going to be a busy, busy, busy week!

We’re all pretty jazzed. I’m going to start a list of things I want to do to the place. Then, we’ll scratch them as we can afford them. I am pretty sure there’s going to be a good chunk of DIY projects on the list, so please stick around if you know anything about do-it-yourself home improvement/decoration. I’m going to need some advice/tips! And a drill.

Welcome to our new abode.

(First thing on our list may be to trim the bottom of that palm. Those dead fronds are not cute.)
