Long Time, No Post

It’s been a while, I know.  This past November has turned out to be a very exciting and busy month for me and the fiancé.  We are proud to announce that we are now officially no longer rent-paying-apartment-dwellers but mortgage-paying-hour-long-commuting-home-owners.  Yay!

We’ve moved in and painted most of the rooms.  Big shout out to the many family members who came out to help us with everything – THANKS EVERYONE, WE COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU!  There’s still a lot (like, a lot) of work to be done before we’re ready to have a get-together to celebrate this milestone and to thank everyone who have been, and continue to be, so supportive of us during this process.

John and I are being ambitious and shooting to have the house ready before Christmas. I think I can, I think I can.  It sometimes overwhelms us how much we have to do.  And it’s not even major renovation that we’re in for – just cosmetic stuff we have to deal with.  It can be very daunting at times, but we figure, it’ll all get done eventually.  Hopefully. Sometime.  Everyone tells us it will never end because we’ll always find things we’ll want to change or do.  Oh joy!  No seriously, Oh Joy.  We’re just grateful that we have the privilege to own our own home.  It’s so difficult to be able to afford anything decent, even in this housing slump, that if my biggest problem as a homeowner will be that I am always finding things to do around that house, then great!

We’ve been trying to be good about taking photographs so I’ll be posting some before-and-after photographs here.  Stay tuned.
