Big News!

10 May

A Very Big Thing happened last night. Luke and I closed on our very first house! This means that we are now homeowners, which is crazy!


Since we’ve got at least 5 more years here in this city, and because the housing market here is MUCH more affordable than back home, we decided that buying would be better than renting for those five years. So we did! It’s not a huge house, but it’s on a good-sized lot for this city, and in a neighborhood that is close in distance to where our apartment now is, but miles away in terms of safety, quietness, etc. We’re moving to a good neighborhood!

Now, to finish out the semester, go on a research trip and move all in the next two weeks? Sure, no problem. On that note, I better get back to work.

And to leave you with: A video of Webster. I’m clearly trying to get some work done, and all he’s concerned with is killing the string on my hoodie. Typical.

    Congratulations! It’s nice to have a place to call your own–paint the walls, pound nails, plant perennials.

    (And get after that string, Webster! Get it!)

    Woo Hoo!

    I’m so happy for the four of you! Are you done packing yet? ;^)

    I love Webster’s video. He sure has a lot of energy for being the “older brother.”
