My New Home (Money Pit)
Hello Forum Friends.....
I have been out of touch recently due to buying my first home. I had no idea the hoops that had to be jumped through in the process of buying a home, and the bleeding of money to purchase house essentials (washer, dryer, lawnmower, fridge) OMG!
But I am happy to say its almost over! Final walk through tomorrow, signing of my life away to the mortgage company on Friday, and movers on Saturday.
Its been an extremely stressful month. Thought about hitting analogs, but I have resisted! This weekend will be 3 months off analogs. Cant fall off the wagon now!
Here is a pic of my new money pit!
That looks really nice Kelly, congrats on your first home :thumbs:
Nice place Ms Kelly. Good luck and keep on vaping, you'll be fine. :thumb:
Way to go girl! Still have a nice leather swivel rocker that's available ;) (private joke b/t Kelly and me) I' available to help if you need me. Congrats on staying strong during this stressful time :thumbs: When's the house party? :music:
Congrats KellyV! Looks like a nice house you got there. We will be doing the same soon.. (hopefully) as soon as we sell our current home.
Congrats on the house Ms. KellyV, along with hitting the 3 month mark. :)
HAHA! No House Party! I need quiet relaxing time after all this stress! Thanks for the offer to help though, greatly appreciated. But I think I am in good shape. I am all packed up except for things needed for the next few days. I also marked all my boxes carefully so I know whats in them to make it easier to unpack the bare essentials first. The rest of the boxes will be going in the garage and I will slowly work on them as time permits. This way the house stays straight during the unpacking :) Or at least thats the game plan in my head. lol
I hired movers too, or as I call them, muscular slaves :) Everything moved in one trip and you dont have to lift a single box? What could be better then that? :thumbs:
Wow!! Congrats Kelly! On the house and the 3 months :thumbs: +1 on the movers! Definitely worth every penny!!
And lol! We bought a house once, it was definitely an ordeal. I am not planning on doing that ever again, if I can help it.
How'd the walk thru go? Ready to join the ranks of us poor homeowners? ;)
Great way to celebrate your three month mark!
Walk through went OK. Signed my life away and got the keys yesterday. Then it didnt go so well lol
They say as soon as you sign the papers everything breaks? Well a few things have issues. The water line to my new fridge leaks, the hose bibs for the washer drip a little now that there is a washer hooked up to them, and the garage door is having issues :( Luckily its nothing earth shattering, so I got my handyman coming this weekend.
I didnt accomplish as much yesterday at the new house as I had planned due to my aggravation level. But not much I can do about it, so just need to focus on getting moved.
Right now trying to get some coffee in me and do the packing of our last minute stuff. Movers will be here in a couple hours. Wont have my computer set back up till probably Sunday/Monday so doing a couple things online before I shut it down.
Crossing my fingers nothing else breaks or leaks today!
