A couple of things have begun actually.
First of all, the heat.
Friday it was hot enough for this.
And at 10 PM when I went to bed it was still 84 degrees outside. No more opening the windows for nice cool air at night. Waaa.
The second thing that has begun, looking at houses. In real life. Not just online. This weekend we looked at 14 houses! Only one that I really liked so far and it was close to power lines so it is probably a no. But I am getting a better sense of what I really want and what to expect in what areas and things like that. All the houses we've seen so far have been vacant, which is so nice and easy. The kids thought it was great fun running around a bunch of empty houses checking things out. We have plenty more that we want to look at so I'm not discouraged yet. I just hope we find one that we really love. What brought on this sudden surge of house looking, you ask. Well our house closed on Friday! We have our money in the bank and we're excited to use it as a great down payment. Did my husband spend one dime to take me out to a celebratory dinner, you ask. Well no. And to whomever I may have shared my very depressing demeanor with on Friday, I am very sorry. I am feeling much brighter today.
