The day of closing was very exciting. My parent’s arrived just in time for my final walk through. We had lunch and headed over to the title company. I swear I signed a billion documents. Don’t tell anyone but I’m pretty sure I misspelled my name a couple of times…
|Please forgive the pictures in this post, they were taken with an iPhone :-)|
Walking out of the title company was surreal. My mom gave me a big hug and we all started laughing. I still can’t believe I bought a house. It was an exhilarating moment!
The wide range of emotions I’ve felt over the past 7 days have left me exhausted.
It has been hard work.
We (and by “we” I’m referring to my mother and step-father) have been busy spackling, scraping, sanding, painting, and more painting, and more painting…I’m still not done painting.
Also, we took EIGHTEEN trips (and counting) to Home Depot! Sheesh!
I won’t even talk about the fact that I’ve already had to call a plumber and an electrician.
The house was filthy! See the picture below? Can you tell which drawer is clean and which isn't?
But then there are moments when I’m sitting on my porch swing, admiring my quaint house, which I feel at peace.
Seeing my things in the house has made a huge difference. They distract me from the chipping paint and the scratched floors.
I’m so excited to make the doll house mine. I took a bunch of “before” pictures with my camera and I will share them with you soon!
In the meantime, check out this picture I snapped of my backyard:
Happy Hump Day!
