So I haven’t said anything here because I didn’t want to jinx it, but WE’RE BUYING A HOUSE! We’ve lived in this apartment for the last 4 years, 2 years longer than we should have. We’ve lived here through at least 4 management changes, I’m leaning more towards 5 though. Each new company worse than the last one. I hate living in an apartment, but moving here from Colorado in the middle of the winter… well, it was a good idea at the time. Definitely not a permanent change though. I don’t know how people live with the lack of privacy and the intrusion of other people’s noises.
With my husband’s duty station being changed, we had entertained the idea of getting a house there. We even drove out there one day to get a feel for the place. I didn’t care much for it, I didn’t like the idea of living on post, even if temporary, and I knew it was a bad idea to live that close to the Williams Sonoma and Le Creuset outlet stores 😂. After a long afternoon of looking at houses, we decided we didn’t want to move out there permanently. Especially since my husband only has about another year and a half left before he retires. We decided it was best that he commute for a little while, but we definitely needed to move.
One morning, after dropping my son off for his classes, I went for a drive. I had planned to go take a look at a specific property, but typed it into my GPS wrong. Next thing I knew I was back in the country where I found 3 new communities. It was here and purely by accident, that I found what will be my new home. I love it. It has almost everything on my list. The only downside is that it is a townhouse and not a house, but other than that…. it’s absolutely perfect. The house is officially complete, closing is in a couple of weeks, and we have our walk through this week, everything is moving along swimmingly.
This is why I’ve neglected you. I’m sorry for that. We’ve been cleaning, purging, and packing…. when we’re done with that honestly, I’m so tired that all I want to do is lay down and close my eyes. Know that I will be back soon, and will post as much as possible between now and about 2 weeks from now when we start the actual moving process.
Have a wonderful week guys! I’ll try to post tomorrow.
