First Time Buyers

The joys of home ownership. We closed the 22nd on a prince of property with a nice bit if land and a small home built in 1943. We went back and forth about it, almost tried to back out, but decided to just do it. We closed in escrow and took a couple days to rest and regroup. I'm too tired to blog this. Monday we picked up the Penske truck and the movers came to load it. I originally had a Uhaul arranged. But they misplaced my appliance dolly and wanted me to go pick one up. No. Driving the Penske truck was almost a spiritual experience. Whenever I'm driving a large vehicle, hauling freight, I feel reconnected with a part of myself that is missing.

Land Scarlet!

buying rural property has been a bit over whelming. There's more involved than mortgages and home inspections. There's a well, septic, acreage, special insurance circumstances, TV and internet issues. Nothing is simple when trying to live the simple life. I think I'm about ready to drop dead from stress.
