Missing in Action

Incase anyone has missed me let me fill you in on where and what I have been doing for the past few weeks. Sometime in October I got an itch to buy a Harley Davidson V-Rod. After about a week or so of looking at them, I was sitting on the toilet and it dawned on me that I was being an idiot. I should be looking into buy a home, not a 16 thousand dollar bicycle. A girl I work with happens to be married to a realtor so we started talking and the search was on.

I was being pretty picky I guess but I was only looking for a two bedroom, or more, two bath, two car garage home on a quiet street. Out of the handful of homes that I saw two really stood out but one had the backyard against a very busy street and the other was very close to a high school. I honestly thought I was going to have to make a decision between those two homes. For two weeks, I didn’t go out looking for homes. The reason was that it was already Thanksgiving and many of the houses on the market I had already looked at. On December 9 I went to go see a home that eventually became the home I purchased.

The sale closed on February 3 and I have had the keys since the 6th of February but I have not moved in. I have been doing some remodeling and it is slow going. The painting I am doing should be done this weekend.
