Home Owner

Sunday, 9 May 2010

I signed the documents for the house on Thursday and moved in that night.  My movers set up my bed and I dumped my suitcases and most boxes in the floor.  Getting ready for work the next morning was like searching for artifacts in a disaster zone.  I waded through clothes, shoes, toiletries, and books searching for towels and shampoo.

Life is a bit more organized now and I really love having a house.  It is small but compared to my studio apartment on the West Coast, it feels HUGE.  I unloaded my dishwasher yesterday and raked out the front flower beds.  The largest pile of clothing is now sorted and hanging in my large (relatively speaking) closet.

Sorry I've been slow with updates.  I don't have internet yet at home and blogging on a Blackberry is not recommended.  Hope you had a lovely weekend.

Congratulations!!!

A word of advice - put a copy of your HUD-1 in your 2010 tax folder so you can find it when it comes time to do your taxes next year. (Some title companies actually send you a copy at the beginning of the year after you buy your house.) And that huge folder of papers you signed ... keep them all together because you will need them when you sell the house.
