Done and Done

11 Dec

It’s happened.  I’m a homeowner.  For reals.  I can cross #56 off my list.

From here until the new year I’ll probably have paint in my hair, no money for anything other than the dollar menu, circles under my eyes from late nights painting and packing and moving, and, best of all, I’ll have a house.  My house. Our house.  

I really didn’t think this was possible.  Why I put #56 on my list was 98.3% positive I would not own a house by the time the 101 in 1001 challenge ended, and yet here I am.  A homeowner. 

Now, who wants to come help paint?

    All right – congratulations, T. and Andrew, too! I’m so proud of both of you!

    BTW, I was just reading your “ME” picture caption – “I’m a Terra…with a dog…” And yet in your picture that’s the weirdest looking dog I’ve ever seen…looks more like a sea turtle to me…it made me laugh – thanks, I needed that!

    I have a great mental picture of you with paint in your hair, bedragged, holding Christmas lights and a paintbrush.

    Wow! How exciting for both of you! Goodluck with the painting and house stuff. It will be exhausting, but SO WORTH IT! Yay!
