I am doing NaBloPoMo this month. 30 blog posts in 30 days. Come join me. #nablopomo2022

Yesterday was a long day for me.  I woke up at my usual time, drank my coffee, and checked email.  Then I went to the car shop to have my tires checked out, went to eat breakfast, went to Target, then to the bank, and finally made it to work.  I was there by 9:30am.  I had conferences from 11:30am-3:30pm with a break for lunch/dinner and then again from 5:00-7:00 pm.  Almost everyone showed up which is a good thing.

This was my breakfast and it was yummy. 

Mimosas sounded much better.  😀

Many of you know that I’ve been wanting to buy a house for a long time.  I’ve seen many, many houses, and there were some I liked and others I did not.  The housing market has been booming with houses selling for $100k or more from one year ago.  

On Saturday I went to see a house and liked it a lot.  The price was lower than what I’ve seen in previous months.  I put in an offer and it was accepted.  To say I am excited is an understatement.  However, part of me still cannot believe it and am “waiting” for something to go wrong.  Why am I being so negative?  I feel like it is too good to be true. 

Today is the house inspection and am crossing my fingers that no major repairs need to be done.  If all goes well, I will close, and can move in before the end of the year.  How’s that for ending 2022 with a bang!

 I am also linking up with Tuesday Topics!  Make sure to join the linkup!

  1. Oh wow, Zenaida! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
    That’s so exciting! Finally!
    I’m sure that all will go well with the purchase. I’m staying tuned for more details.

  2. Oh my goodness I’m so happy to hear your news about your house – I have goose bumps! I hope everything goes smoothly at today’s inspection and can’t wait to see pictures!

  3. Wow, that is great news, Zenaida. Buying a house is a big deal (sorry, I don’t know this – are you single and doing this on your own? Then that is even more impressive!) I am so glad 2022 is going out with a bang for you. Woohoo!

  4. Congratulations! What a wonderful way to end 2022.

    I found your blog via San’s list of NaBloPoMo participants, I’m going to look around a bit. 🙂

  5. Wow! How exciting. There are so many emotions (all conflicting) involved with buying a house. I’m so glad you found something in a good price range and I wish you all the best with finalizing the logistics. Congrats!!

  6. I’m so excited for you Zenada! Try to keep thinking positively. Picture yourself living in your new wonderful home — and Mateo & Lola, of course, too. Fingers crossed!

    I know housing has really come down in some parts of the country — it couldn’t stay that high forever. Can’t wait to hear how the inspection went!

    • I decided not to move forward with the house. Will look again. The plan is to keep the same arrangements as they’re now. Then when she can no longer walk or it is too difficult for her, then she will stay with me.

  7. oh wow how exciting on the house! Hope things go in your favor. Can’t wait to hear how it goes

  8. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you that everything works out with the house purchase! I still remember how nervous I was when we were there.

  9. This is exciting! You’ve been talking about buying a house as long as I’ve been reading your blog. I hope it all goes well- like your other readers, I’m waiting eagerly to hear what happens.

Thank you for your comment!
