Life is kind of off the hook right now. It'd take a lot of writing to lay it all out, and I've really not been in the mood, to tell you the truth. But here's one big thing:

We've bought a place!! We're still in Attorney's review & need to go through the inspection this week, and so we're not out of the woods just yet but we've bought a place!!!

We don't move until October 15, which is going to feel like eons, but we did this intentionally so that we can focus our attentions on some other, more important life matters over the upcoming weeks & months.

I'm fighting the buyer's remorse but honestly it isn't as bad as I'd expect it to be. After scouring the real estate listings & dragging our patient realtor around for eleven months, we're both very sure of this place. Let me tell you how weird it is to stand in the middle of someone else's bedroom and look at your dude and your realtor and "just know"... and know that they "just know" as well. This is it!

Let me tell you how good it feels to see Zach do a little dance about the back deck. Let me tell you how good it feels to know I'm not going into this alone.

This morning I was sorting files on my computer and found our list of must haves & nice to haves that we'd made out last November:

2 bedroom or possibility to convert to 2 bd
At least one bedroom big enough to able to walk around the bed (i.e 10ft or bigger)
Laundry or potential for laundry in unit

Little outdoor space
Trees outside
1.5 bath
Decent sized bathroom

& I guess the only thing we gave up is the trees.

Here's a picture of one end of that deck:

My own place to grow tomatoes!!!

  1. You can always grow a "container" tree on the deck. The trick is to water it - a lot - and to have a place for it during the cold months. Honest!
