Julie: Homeowner

I closed on my condo this morning!

Yes, it was supposed to be last Friday...don't get me started on how frustrated I felt last week. Nothing can be done about that now, so I'm just focusing on the fact that it's done! I'll get the keys as soon as the transaction records, hopefully tomorrow, supposedly no later than Thursday.

It hasn't really sunk in that I own a home. Afterall, I don't have the keys for it and I don't live there yet. This week is going to involve a lot of work, but I try to focus on my favorite part of the moving process - finding places for my stuff! I especially love putting away my kitchen things. There is something so blissful about finding the perfect spot for one's pots and pans, spices, and such. I've already got a mental list of things I'd like to purchase which will enrich my kitchen experience. Top of the list: cool canisters for flour, sugar, etc. I currently have some white plastic ones that function properly but that are ugly. Sigh. I can't wait!

Maybe, just maybe, I'll take pictures this week to post on my blog. Don't hold your breath, though. I'm not a picture-taker. Plus, maybe if you don't have pics of the condo, you'll feel more inclined to come visit!!!

Come for a visit!

Congratulations! There is something very satisfying about putting your things away in your very own home! For me it was also knowing that I wouldn't have to pack (I detest that part) for a long long time!

Sarah, you're welcome anytime! And I'm still planning to come see YOUR condo someday this summer. I don't know when exactly, but I really want to!

Framed, what if I offer to carry you up the two flights of stairs??? :)

Book, thanks!

Missy, I bet it's satisfying, I'm certainly looking forward to finding out! I'm glad I won't have to pack again, too. Usually I'm really organized when I pack (I even label all the boxes with details of what each contain), but this time I'm just throwing stuff in haphazardedly and not labeling unless the contents are fragile!

That's so cool.
You may have to email me the address.
I'm way happy for you,
and I can't wait to see it.

p.s. if you want to include the rules for the dice game, I would appreciate that too. ttfn

Hey I am so glad that you are a current home owner. I hope to never have to move. Cross my fingers.

And yes I finally have internet, I am so excited for faster speed. YEAH!
