It hasn't been completely dead around here. I've just been too lazy to blog...and I blame Megan for taking my memory stick so I can't take pictures.
I'll get it back from her and get all caught up in the next day or so.
I finally finished painting and organizing the living room and kitchen.
The office is pretty much done too. Just have to finish that pesky filing. The hard part is done...all that sorting! Gahhh!!!
And Megan's bathroom is done.
Just her bedroom left to repaint and get organized. Yea! It's really feeling like "our" home around here now.
My Honey was gone for a week, allowing me the freedom to completely trash the house. That's how I roll. It drives MH crazy, but it's the only way I know how to thoroughly clean. He always likes the results when he gets home, so I guess we have figured out how to deal with each other.;-)
He went to Texas and Louisana for business. And then over to Scottsdale for a little R&R.
While he was gone. I bought a house and some land!!
Actually, I'm not kidding.
I was looking for some comps for my neighbor. Bless her heart. We need a place to keep the horses. She has been wanting to sell her place and downsize. We had a difference in opinion on what her place was worth. So I was doing a little research.
I ran across a listing for a property the next street over from us. It is a forclosure property. It has a house, a 2 stall barn, some dinky corrals, a huge shop and TWENTY ACRES. For the same price my neighbor wanted for her 5 acres and doublewide. Not that I'm dissing the doublewide, but who wouldn't go for the better deal?
I have been dealing with the realtor for the last few days. The bank accepted our offer and the contract. Financing shouldn't be an issue. Hopefully the Home Inspection doesn't come back a nightmare. Foreclosures aren't known for people really giving a crap about what they leave behind(And honestly who can blame them?)I'm not overly concerned though. All I really care about is the land. Repos can be a PITA though. I won't relax until we get to the closing table.
So I've been all excited the last few days waiting for MH to come home to get this rolling.
Come to find out he had a surprise of his own to share...
He didn't escape the Barrett-Jackson Car Sale unscathed....
In a few weeks, this beauty will be delivered! It's the 2010 Dodge Challenger in none other than the uber, cool, retro Plum Crazy Purple.
I wonder if I'll ever get to drive it?
No matter. I think it's a fair deal. He gets a new car. I get a new horse property.
