homeward bound

So, it was a long long road full of ups and downs, but we're finally homeowners. We closed on June 8th. I actually only got to spend one hour at the house that day because I was on-call, but it was a great hour!

The journey was crazy. We searched for almost 5 months and we thought we were going to have to suck it up and move into Freddie's apartment (poor guy was going to have to carry his new bride up 3 flights of stairs to reach the thresh hold.) I talked to the previous owner for almost an hour about his dead mother to convince him we were the nice christian couple he was looking for. I convinced him he did not need to add the provision which would forbid us from renting the house for seven years to our contract...can you say crazy?! I listened to all of his horribly racist and prejudiced comments--by the way, if we do rent the house, we will be renting it to a black muslim to teach Mr. L a lesson. We will diversify the neighborhood even if it kills them. The realtor was the same way? Where do you find these people and how come they just assume it's okay to say such horrible things to a stranger? I suppose the better question is why didn't I put them in their places? I'll admit it, I laid my principles down because I REALLY did not want to live in that apartment.

But, it's all over now and we're in! I've stayed in my new house one time and it was glorious! Our fridge came on Sunday. Someone just offered me a morning glory to plant. I loaded the dishwasher with our everyday stuff. We bought a shower curtain and rod. I put the shelf liner in. I am Suzy Homemaker and I'm actually pretty stoked.

Here's a few snaps of our new crib.
