Taking the next step...

Friday night's concert was fun. Not as fun as it was the past couple times and I don't know if it was because they changed their playlist a bit, or I was exhausted from the busy week, or I was sober. Maybe it was all of the above. It took everything in me to stay out until the band was done...1am.

Change of topics...

I know I have made comments this summer about looking for a house. Two weeks ago I had looked a handful of properties with my realtor and really liked a couple of them. One was a 1920's home with a lot of character and some very nice updates; the other being a twinhome with a nice large deck and large yard. This Tuesday my parents came up and we looked at both properties together. Wednesday I met with my mortgage councilor to discuss some numbers. Thursday I looked over some of the sellers' disclosures and talked a bit about it with the 'rents. Friday, I scheduled to meet up with my realtor after work and ended up making an offer. A few hours later, after a counter offer, I was notified that the twinhome was mine! I move in the middle of October!

So, with that note, I presume that a lot of posts from here on out may revolve around this change in my life, so bare with me. I hope that once I get my computer situtation taken care of, I will be able to post pictures as I move in and do some much needed painting to a few rooms.
