So we bought a house….Did I mention that already?
We’re pretty excited now. At first we weren’t. It was the most anticlimactic house purchase of all time. I was sick and the only thing I got excited about was when 4 hours were up and I could get more medicine. John wanted to be excited, for both of us, but all he could think about was the mortgage and all the furniture we don’t own.
But the more we talk about it, the more it sets in. We really bought a house. We are MOVING in 21 days!
We are excited!
– Decorating for CHRISTMAS! I’ve decided we can have 2 trees. A real one for me and a fake one for John. John is allll about the fake tree, which I don’t understand.
– FURNITURE like this couch that I love:
Leather= wipeable= easy to clean!
– Space and STORAGE! I never thought I would be excited about storage but the kitchen pantry is probably my favorite thing about the new house. I can stock up on things! Like Chicken broth and cans of soup and all things COSTCO sized. The guest room closet won’t be filled with rice and flour! Guests can actually hang up their clothes now!
– Multiple bathrooms… which is KEY especially when there are guests over.
– A dog
YES, we are researching dogs right now! We are dog people. Hopefully our cat is a dog person too.
I was all about getting a dog from the human society but John wanted to research the breed and a lot of Humane society dogs have unknown breeds. He wants to make sure the dog doesn’t need a crazy amount of exercise, and isn’t a hunting dog….because we don’t want it to hunt our cat. We also want to make sure the dog is good with kids.
So that’s what’s been going on. A house, A dog….and maybe a couch.
And tomorrow is Remembrance day and a holiday here in Alberta! I’m going Christmas Shopping and I actually think I can get it all done! Woohoo
