A big step


There has been a lot going on in a short period of time.  But hopefully in the next few lines you will understand why I've been quiet in blogland recently.  I have had a lot of major life changes in this first half of 2014 and I'm about to take another huge step towards change.

Huge is an understatement perhaps.  


YES.....I have bought a cute little bungalow for myself.  The mortgage is in place, home inspection complete, insurance has been quoted, lawyers have been hired and the closing date is July 30th.  

Eeeeeeeeeeee!  A new adventure!  Pictures will come later.  It needs a little updating inside but I'm in no rush. I want to live in it a few months before I decide on paint colors etc.   it even has a little den which I have already labelled as my hooking room.  But I'm really excited and a little terrified but I think every first time home buyer feels that way.  

Once things settle down a bit here I will be back to visitng around your blogs.  Right now I'm a little overwhelmed and my head is spinning.
