I'm taking a break from cleaning the bathroom. In a perfect world I wouldn't have to share a bathroom with men. Actually, in a perfect world I wouldn't have to share a bathroom with anyone. Just thought I would put that out there.
Are you ready for the big news? Are you sure?
It has nothing to do with my love life. Sorry. But while we're on the subject I might as well let you know that this whole business of finding someone you like enough to go out with more than once, and then more than twice, and then more than six months, and then forever...and having it be mutual...that's proving to be much more than what I'm capable of.
Okay, here it is...in all of it's big news glory:
I AM BUYING A HOUSE.
And I'm kind of freaking out about it...if I'm being honest. And I am. But it's a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2 car garage, BRAND NEW house...one in which I get to pick the paint colors and the tile, and the carpet and the granite counters and the fixtures and the cupboards and...
You get the picture.
But if I'm still being honest I took my little sister with me and said, "You pick the colors and the carpet, and the...everything." And she did. And I told her I would pay her in cookies for her services.
I'd like to thank my parents, and the state and federal government for helping me to make this happen...and for assuring that I'm going to be in the poor house for the next 30 years.
Donations can be sent to _____________. I'm just kidding. (But if you really did want to send a donation...)
You know the pull up jingle: "Mommy, Wow! I'm a big kid now!" That's what I've been singing in my head ever since I signed the contract.
Some day when the house is finished and I get a key I'll take pictures. Until then I'll be making a more conscious effort to pick up the pennies I see on the road.
Oh...and one more thing...in my new house I don't have to share a bathroom with anyone.
