that's it. i'm officially a grown-up.

We bought a house!!!

We just closed on it!

I can go over and visit anytime I want!!

OK, I just used the word "visit" to describe what happens when I go to the house we just bought, so obviously it hasn't quite sunk in yet. I actually called my husband from work the other night:

Me: "So...I can just take the key? and go over? any time?"

Him: "Uh...yeah."

Me: "OK. Just checking." *hanging up, doing the happy dance*

So we don't have to move until next week, which is good because there are other important things to do in the meantime like pack and get the hot water turned on and Oh yeah!! Open presents!! Woo hoo!

And then PACK THEM ALL! YES!!!

Exciting things are in the works for once we're settled.

Like...a puppy. quitting my job. Maybe.

So...YAY! Happy 2009! ;)

I'm so happy for you. Congratulations. So, what day are you moving? Right after Christmas? YIKES. I'll be waiting for pictures- here, myspace, facebook, your other blog, whatever suits your fancy.

Hooray! Congrats!!! That is awesome! What makes buying a house able to let you maybe quit your job...? It seems counter-intuitive but what do I know?! ;)

Sorry I am so late in saying this, but CONGRATS!!! We bought our first house last April, and it has completely changed my life! There is something about the pride of ownership that has changed me from the lazy non-housekeeper to an ambitious DIYer who actually ENJOYS spending time in her kitchen... and garden!!

Do we get pics?
