i long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever i find myself.- maya angelou
well, i survived the two birthday parties last weekend. and now we're on the brink of another weekend. how did that happen? another week came and went and i didn't keep up very well. damn. and now, only 11 days remain for us here in san diego.
but, but, but! the super exciting news of the moment... after a few counters back and forth, we are in contract for this house (photo taken by realtor, not me).
yep, we are. if all goes through with our pre-approved loan, we will live in this home by the end of the month. our home. together in kansas. even if it's only for a year. no wait...11 months. it will be ours, all ours. after that, we will rent it. to others, just like us--but not as daring or risky or crazy enough--to buy, when only living there for umm...less than a year. you see, my husband has this entrepreneurial spirit and that includes real estate investing. one day, he'll even own a laundromat...so he continues to share with me.
i nod my head, yes honey. but you watch. he will. i guess that means i will too.
so hell yea to 2500 square feet, four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a two-car garage and hopefully a linen closet (forgot to check on that). and we will say good-bye to a 1500 square feet of house that has been good to us and taken care of us for the past 3 1/2 years (we've actually been here 4 1/2 years but cat pee, gopher, rat, maggot and fly infestation (left to us by the previous home owners) caused our relocation from our first san diego house, after a year).
we will miss you dear betty street house. you have taken such good care of us and left us with so many wonderful memories. and i thank you for that.
