We Bought A House!

Hey Everyone!

Like I said, I wasn’t able to post on Friday 😦 It just wasn’t in the cards for what I had to do. My wife and I did go see ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ on Friday. It is still super new so I won’t ruin anything, but it was good. It is a little too slow paced for my liking but the story is good and the animation is unreal. Check it out!

Well, like the title says, we bought a house. If you have been a follower of mine for any decent amount of time you know we had been looking for over two years, that we were living with my parents, and that we found what we wanted. Today was the day that the check was handed over, the T’s were crossed and the I’s were dotted. I have a pocket full of keys as we speak. The house is ours. It is a 1940’s Colonial, 3 bed, 2 bath. It needs very little and will be a perfect fit for us. All of the utilities are transferred as of today as well. We have to find a good time to get moving. We also have a guy sending us an estimate about installing a fence for our dog too. There is still so much chaos but at least we own that chaos now haha. It is a short week here at work, with Thanksgiving going on and all, so we won’t have much time to do anything this week. I know tonight we are going to buy a refrigerator from Home Depot. We are also going to take our traditional ‘home owners’ picture with the sign out front. Hopefully it won’t be too dark by then. My parents have yet to see the inside of the house so they will come over tonight as well. We have kept them out of the loop so that things didn’t get any more complicated than they had to.

This work day has flown by since I came in a few hours late. I’m all jumbled up. I have called around and changed my address with a few people but there will be no way to get them all. Our server is being migrated as we speak here at work. That should be fully functional in a matter of a couple days.

That is really all I have for you today, I hope you have a great week, and I’ll see you tomorrow! 😀 😀

    1. As I was re-reading this post I realized that we never did post those pictures. I’ll have to do some digging for them. We stayed with my parents for 2 years while saving up what we could and paying down student loans haha. Our house is somewhat moved into. We bought all the furniture we needed, re-did the porch and outdoor carpet, fenced the whole yard ourselves, and we are waterproofing the basement soon. I am working on finishing the garage walls, as well as trying to find a way to turn our empty attic room into a library! 😀

    1. It is fairly sorted haha. We have a couple of rooms left still. We put up a fence around the whole yard our selves, fixed up the concrete porch stairs and laid outdoor carpeting, bought a whole mess of furniture, and are going to be waterproofing the basement soon. 😀

      1. It does take a long time to make a house into a home doesn’t it!?

        We bought a flat in London, but the only way we could afford it was to buy a really run down one. It took like three years for us to make it nice!
