We have a home.Monday, November 03, 2014
On Tuesday of last week Rob and I did something that I didn't think I would be doing until we were in our 30s. We closed on a house. We are, officially, homeowners. Its a very odd concept and I don't think it has hit me. This place that I live in. Its ''ours''. I put quotes around the word ours because technically the bank owns this house until we pay off the mortgage (which we plan to do very quickly compared to the average homeowner), But still, since we aren't renting this place, we can talk about doing whatever we want here and we can put those thoughts into action.
We don't have to worry about being too loud with neighbors downstairs.
I can have my own laundry line in the backyard if I want.
I HAVE A BACK YARD.
My kitchen is larger than my bathroom, for once.
Granted, our place isn't new....its not huge....and it's nothing to brag about. But, because of this, the house was cheaper than those around it and we aren't putting ourselves in over our heads with our mortgage.
I am so thankful right now. We have a home.
