It's mine!

I closed on my house Tuesday. I felt like the attorneys, closers and agents should have said "congratulations, we regret to inform you it's all yours." :-) It's been a stressful process and I haven't had much time to do anything but stuff that involved the close. The reality is the hard part starts now and that's fixing up my fixer upper. First on my list is get into the crawl space and fix the moisture problem and get my fence for the dogs installed. Then I can work on the bathrooms and kitchen with a goal on moving in before Labor Day.

Margie ~
I was hoping we hadn't heard from you because you were busy purchasing your house. Now that you have a house, you can make it a home. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so happy for you. Please show us pictures...soon! We want to see what it looks like now so we can appreciate all you've done when you show us the after.
Big pug hugs :)

Congratulations Margie! Making a house into a home is what it's all about...just wait until you have been there a bit, have things where you want them and kick back to stitch something for your wall...and with as fast as you stitch, it will be there in now time. I am glad things worked out after all your troubles!
