We bought a house! I’m not sure why we thought buying a house the week before Christmas when we aren’t even going to be home was a great plan, but here we are.
We got the keys last weekend (I was still in San Francisco) and started demoing right away.
Our goal is to have all of the flooring ripped out, the carpet replaced and the entire upstairs painted by Thursday because we have to move out of our rental and have it cleaned by Friday so we can leave for San Francisco on Friday night.
So my days recently look like this:
- Wake Up
- Work out. Only 10 days til the beach!
- Pack things, then realize I packed all the bowls and can’t eat breakfast
- Work all day
- Make something for supper, then head over to the new place
- Paint/do things for 3 hours
- Go home, shower, watch Homeland, go to bed
Which is really funny because previously after working all day I thought going to the library, which is like 3 blocks from my house, was too arduous a task to even consider.
I guess that’s why they say if you need something done, ask a busy person?
I’m really excited about the new place, the best part by far is the front porch, pictured above.
I plan on spending 98% of my time out there reading and drinking tea, and hoping I don’t get hit in the head by a golf ball.
One thought on “new house”
