    Well, I did it. As you probably guessed from my latest brief absence here, I finally bought my first house and got the keys.

    Now the only problem is... work. LOL I think it'll be a couple of weeks yet before I can move in. There's a whole lot of painting, ripping up old flooring, and whatnot going on. What a mess!

    Just wanted to share my news :) I'm super excited!!

    Congrats! [face_dancing]
    Yeah. Fixing up a "new" house can be a lot of work. Good luck :D
    Again, YAY! [face_dancing]

    That's wonderful. Congratulations. =D=

    We still do not have a house of our own. Best of luck with all the work. I am happy for you.

    Congratulations!

    The two houses that we've bought have both been in "move-in" condition when we bought them. I think we got pretty lucky. :D

    Painting can be fun, though. :)
    Stripping wallpaper sucks, though. [face_plain]

    DEFINITELY the American dream! It's a great neighborhood where people still fly Old Glory, even in the dead of winter. Just the kind of place for me.

    And thankfully, no wallpaper to tear off! I do have painting, painting, more painting to do... bleck.

    LOL.
    There are cool things like sponge painting roller sets that you can make a neat accent wall if you desire. Something you should look into. ;)

    Ummm...no.
    To much to do for CIII and then for Dragon Con.
    But I'm happy to help with advice, having done lots of painting in my old house. ;)

    Ugh. T Minus 10 days (or so) and counting til I can move in.

    Have painted living room, dining room, basement, my room, 1st coat on kitchen.

    They finally delivered my washer & dryer.

    The floor peeps came and tore up the kitchen floor. I'm waiting on them to put in a sub-floor and lay the new floor down now.

    Then I can get Stohl carpet cleaners to come out and do the carpets.

    And THEN, maybe then, I can move.

    *sighs and slumps on the nearest couch, exhausted* ;)
