I have blogged in the past but this time it is for real. My fiancé Tom and my two boys (cats rather) Hamlet and Nanaki have moved into a lovely little house on Fern Street. We moved in late March of 2010 and have been settling in ever since.
My first few post will be to catch you up to speed on how we got to where we are now.
It was a dreadful winter like always in Michigan and I was lazily sitting on our couch in our living at our apartment. My fiancé Tom was playing StarCraft and I was surfing the internet. I came across a real state website and started to browse the houses and condos in our area. Tom leaned over asking what I was looking at.
"Just looking" I said. Of course that is where everything starts is with the phrase "just looking." I'm sure Caesar said "Just looking" when he was about to conquer Rome.
This "just looking" turned into "just buying" a few weeks later. We secured out lovely little house in no time flat. There was also the nice little incentive to buy now with the tax credit.
We began to pack up our belonging which was no small task. I am a firm believer that when you move in with someone you accumulate a lot of STUFF. The boxes mounted and the anxiety was building. We closed on the house and moved our stuff in during the next two days.
It took awhile for everything to feel right. But after nearly two months, it feels like home.
