No, it’s not the end of the world….or at least not in so many words. It’s the close of escrow. I will have my own home again, after 3 years of being back with my parents and all, I will own again. It’s a nice ( albeit a bit small ) 2 bed, 2 bath condo. The master bath has a jacuzzi tub ( which Brooke loves ) and was kept in some pretty great shape. I’ll probably replace the linoleum in the bathrooms with tile or new linoleum, and going to get a team to go through there just before the close of escrow to give it a deep cleaning.
Cash is going to be VERY tight for a while, but things will be ok. It’s great that Brooke is ok being a homebody a lot of the time, as these first 6 months of being a homeowner again are going to leave my discretionary budget fairly slim. I’m looking forward to having my own space again, and I’m sure my cats won’t even know what to do with having so much room to run around anymore. I know Brooke is looking forward to the jacuzzi tub for when she gets her migraine headaches, and I could use it right about now with all the stress i have built up in my neck, shoulders and back.
Time to get back to work.
