We did it!!

As some of you have seen on FB already, we went ahead and bought the house, I still wake up in a cold sweat sometimes, thinking that we did a totally insane thing! At least we didn't experience a stock market crash and all our assets disappeared LOL Worse comes to worse we can always sell and stay here or go somewhere else, right?

We are going down for the closing and spend a few days in Freddie's house, that should be a nice little vacation without the kids. Gabrielle is going to hold down the Fort around here. Good thing she has her license, she is going to have to drive Michael to school in the morning and then the two of them. We are working on finding a place for her to park at school. Spots are very hard to come by.

Here are a couple of pics of the property. These are from the listing and really not very good, but it's all I have at the moment. I am not even showing the inside or else you might fall over backwards. There is a ton that needs to be done!

I really like the little pool, it's a saline pool, I don't even know how to take care of that. What I am worried about is the size, there are no basements in Charleston, so storage is hard to come by. For me as a packrat, this is going to be especially hard. We'll see what the future holds. I am not even thinking about selling our house here for now, I'd have to take a match to all the stuff we have :)

Every morning I click on my weather app to see what the temperature is going to be in Charleston, I like to torture myself. Here it's in the 50s, down there it's in the 70s and 80s. Some people like the cold, I don't. Not anymore. I used to be really keen on seasons, now you can keep them. I'd like a little snow for Christmas and that's it! In fact we were talking about spending Christmas down there the other day and the girls almost had a fit. They don't want any part of spending Christmas with palm trees, they want snow and the pine tree and so forth. I'm not sure what they think it's like down there in the winter, it's not going to be in the 80s either. Oh well, we shall see what the future holds.

I am finally caught up with my PL

these are just the last few, I won't bore you with all of them. Now to do last week's...

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
