Our house is a very, very, very fine house, with four dogs in the yard . . .

The reason why I haven't been blogging a lot this summer, or even crafting as much as I usually do in my time off, is that I have been very consumed by all the things that go into buying a house.

The searching website listings, traipsing through strangers' homes, making offers and counter offers, the house inspections, . . . It's all finally done now and I am the proud owner of this little bungalow.

The subjects were removed today and except for a few more documents to sign for title transfer, etc, it's mine.

This is a very big step for a commitment-phobic person like me. It's the longest commitment I've ever made. It took a lot of brown-bag breathing to get through this whole process.

I take possession October 1st. I'm already planning paint and furniture. And, most importantly, a dog run and a craft room. "Screw the living room sofa, where's the spinning wheel going?"

Happy Nesting, M
