We bought a house

After a 15 year absence we are once again homeowners. We closed on our new house yesterday, and now have the keys and garage door opener. I didn't even get a cramp from signing all the papers. This is the 3rd home we have owned. It still doesn't seem real though.

We went over last night after we both got done with work and kind of just walked around. It's weird, because there is absolutely nothing in the house or garage. We want to do some cleaning (although it is pretty clean) and painting. We'll probably get new carpet for the living room and at least one bedroom. Otherwise... it's pretty much ready to live in.

We have no time-table to move yet. It will probably be awhile - a couple weeks anyway. I really have no idea. It just hasn't sunk in yet. I'm doing my best not to freak out.

Peace out; and in.

Very Nice! That was my favorite of the 3 options!

And the yard looks like it will be easy and super fast to mow!

And following up on Darren's comment, my thought was "Now Dan has TWO yards to mow!" :)

Thanks guys. And, yes, the yard is small - so it will be a piece of cake to mow. Which IS good, since the other yard is a bear. :)
