Exciting News

Closing next Friday on our condo! We've been under contract for almost two months and boy has it been a roller coaster. One thing after another. Finally this morning I got the call I've been waiting for: "we're all set!"

So now my domestic training gets kicked into full gear. My mother was here this weekend to help me pick out paint colors and furniture for our tentative (now almost definite!) new home. In my mind, I have the whole place decorated, and almost organized. As I begin to pack up six years of life in my old apartment, I am thinking about all the closet space and how I plan to use it. How I plan to add shelves here, stack tubs there, use this closet for everyday access, that closet for seasonal storage... I'm very excited.

I hope that I will become more motivated to keep a clean house because I will be in a place I love and take pride in. And most importantly, a place with enough space for two (plus a soon-to-be doggie!)
