Excited all over again

August 15th, 2004

We went to see our future home again today, but we didn’t get any more photos because the homeowners were there. We have our inspection scheduled for Thursday, so I’ll probably get more photos then.

After seeing the place again, I’m even more excited about our decision. The place is so spacious, clean and inviting. I was a bit worried about the neighborhood since it’s not familiar to us, but the subdivision was extremely quiet for a Sunday afternoon. Plus there’s an outdoor pool down the block that is included in our association fees, so all of us can still go swimming which is nice since Joe’s parents are moving (they had a pool we’d use often). In addition, there’s a lot of nearby shopping and the local library is really nice, which is a big plus for me.

The homeowners are really nice people and it makes me feel good to be buying from people like that. Joe’s mom loves the new place and is sad she won’t be around to help us move in. I will definitely miss her.

We stopped at the library on the way home and picked up a bunch of home decorating books. Since we’ve got two months of waiting, we might as well do some research. I can’t believe we have to wait two months to move in! I want to move today!

Sorry this entry is all over the place. I can’t express how excited I am about owning my first home. There are so many things about the place I love, from the huge ceilings to the kitchen cabinets to the 2 car garage. I love how we have tons of space and don’t have to sacrifice any of it while still giving the kids their own rooms. They’ve been sleeping on air mattresses on the floor of our living room for almost two years now, so I’m really happy for them to be getting their own space. Not only will I not have to look at their toys all over my living room, but they will feel more at home when they visit. It’s a win-win situation.

Everyone said we kept missing out of the other places we wanted because there was an even better place out there for us and they were so right. I love this place more than all of the other ones we liked. I can’t put into words how happy I am. I feel like we got a fantastic place for a very good price. Had we stayed in this town, we would have had to pay at least $50k more for a comparable space. I guess fate wins again, huh? :)
