Yeah so....

Guess who just bought a house?

That would be ME! Last night Shane and I got the awesome news that our offer, ok second offer, had been accepted on a house! Which we BOTH love! And my mother loves! Yes, I took my mom with me to look at the house.
The picture is awful, and taken from the listing, but there it is!
It is perfect for us, essentially just move in and live. It is in a new school district, shocking I know. I will have a quilting room, which laminate hardwood (is that even a real thing?) so hopefully I will stop destroying vaccuum cleaners with my threads. It is going to be so awesome to have some space! And a little yard!
  So if I'm not around much in the next little while you will know why. We take possession November 30th, and are planning to keep our apartment until the end of the year to make it an easy transition.
The only things that have to be changed is the paint in the master bedroom, Shane's insistence, and what will be my sewing room as it is lime green, the exact shade as Little Bit's crocs, yes that bright, oh my god I can see you a mile away green. Everything else is either good or livable.

 Since I unloaded all the badness awhile ago on you guys I thought I'd share this wonderful news! It is still conditional on the home inspection but other then that it is great! Oh I'm just vibrating with excitement!

Cara that is sooo exciting and I am happy for you. There is nothing like your first home and super happy that you are in a new school district. Best of luck . I just moved and since I also have FM I know how tiring it can be, just do a couple of boxes a day and do your quilting stuff last. Sandra

Congratulations! We also bought a home in the summer, and it's been awesome. We did the move slow too, and it sure did help. No boxes stacked to the ceiling. As we moved things from the old house, we put things away. Enjoy your new home.
