And the Verdict Is…

We got our house! Woot!

This week I’m headed off to the Romantic Times convention. When I get back we’ll be signing all the final paperwork and closing escrow on the mobile home in the canyon that we wanted. Despite all the work and all the money and all the stress, this is what we want. No more landlord (other than the park) and lots more space and hopefully, no prejudiced, loud, obnoxious, contentious, vandalizing neighbors. And a lot more quiet than we get currently.

Yes, I’ll have to commute about a half hour now, but it’s not like I haven’t done that before.  And yeah, we don’t have furniture for a space this big. But hey! We will figure it all out. I like the idea of having a place where no one has a key but us. I didn’t like it when the landlord just let himself into the house because we didn’t answer the door. That’s not okay. (And it’s illegal too I hear.) What if I was in the shower and that’s why I didn’t answer? If I stepped out of the shower naked and came face to face with him cause he let himself in…I would freak the fuck out. Now, in our own home, there is no likelihood of anyone walking in on us.

I have about a million things to do and not enough time or energy to do them. I’m not sure what all it’s going to take to get packed and moved. And then we have to deal with hiring a crew to haul away all the stuff we aren’t taking and clean the place we’re moving out of from top to bottom. Then have all the carpets cleaned and turn over the keys.

After that it will be a case of unpacking and settling the new place. I can’t wait.  My first convention this week and next week my first real home with Rott. No apartment. No condo. No landlord. No noisy neighbors. (I already said all that, didn’t I? I think it bears repeating though.) God, it sounds like heaven.

So I’m off to the office. I have a heavy day of work ahead to close the month in one day. Before I go, I need to give you all a Marcus.

I should have posted a naked chest. Darn! Oh, well. He’s still the best looking guy out there. Hee hee.

Have simply wonderful Monday and I’ll see you all next week with tales from RT. Keep an eye on my FB and Twitter accounts for photos and more from the convention!

    Becky – Thank you! Peace will be the big one. It’s out in the canyon and soooo quiet. I’m looking forward to it.

    Karl – It has a wet bar so according to Rott…it totally rocks!

    Marty – Yeah the no landlord thing is going to be awesome. Still have the park to deal with but it’s not the same. They don’t have keys to my house.

    Liberation from renting is a nice feeling.
