I guess this means I have to start packing...**



I promised Evs that I would not entitle this post "we're homeowners now!" or something else to that effect as he finds similar status updates on Facebook to reside in Lamesauceville.  So instead I'll just say...

... See that house up there?  The one with the brick and the fun front door and the privacy patch (I know, my Stalking Prevention Skillz are brilliant, right... I miss Photoshop!)?  Barring a catastrophic inspection or   natural disaster or some other calamity, it will officially be ours in a few short weeks!  

Which means I am pleased as punch today.  Yep.  I'm all sorts of smug with my big girl closets and my immediate access to White Rock Lake and my bathroom wherein Evs and I can BOTH brush our teeth AT THE SAME TIME.  

It also means I've tethered myself to a pile of stone and wood for the next 30 years.  {Note: Mortgages are scary.  Happily, this one will cost us less than what we are currently paying in rent + pool / yard maintenance, so score a couple-hundred for that!}

It also also means that there's going to be a lot of paint-chip and sectional-selection jabber here on EA.  So... have fun with that, interweb friends!
