Home Sweet Home

23 Feb

Well, we made it! February 18, 2005 marked the beginning of our 30 year debt 🙂

We had a lot of help from family, friends, and a 17′ U-Haul. We spent all morning packing that truck. Man, we had a ton of stairs to climb that day. We made it to the house shortly after 4PM. We were really tempted to drive the truck to the title company, but thought it might look a little tacky, or worse, paying 99 cents per mile would sure add up.

Once at the house, we simply flew. That truck was emptied by 630PM and the pizza was on its way. We had a few casualties that day. Railing banisters, RIP. Queen box spring, RIP. Just ask, I can tell you, but it’s a long, long story…

Well, not quite yet officially, but Maria and I are sure getting excited! The home inspection went great and we already have about 1/3 of our stuff packed and ready to go. Bring on the closing!!! Just some paperwork left to get done, then the place is all ours! Here are some quick house snapshots that we took while we were at the inspection. More to come, I promise!!!
