I bought a house! But I feel more like the maid right now…

on June 1, 2011

So, I bought a house yesterday:

And then I went and started cleaning. I even skipped class to keep cleaning (though I nearly keeled over shortly thereafter. Cleaning is tiring!).

And there’s more cleaning to do. (And it’s not even that the folks left the house dirty, but there’s always more dirt.) It needs painting, too, so that will start tomorrow night.

The plan is to tackle my bedroom and bathroom first so that I can start sleeping there this weekend (on an air mattress, but hey). I’ll still have to go to my parents house to do laundry until I get a washer & dryer, but very shortly, I’ll be here. Am excited.

I didn’t realize how much the impending closing was weighing on me until I woke up this morning and realized it was done. I own a house. Feels much better.

    Congratulations! It’s beautiful! I remember my first night in my first house. I had trouble sleeping. “This is mine! If something goes wrong, I have to fix it. No landlord to call.” It was a little scary! But, of course, I got used to it.

    Congrats! Nice hardwood floors. I am a huge fan of the swiffer.
