And while its not nearly as exciting as Domesticrazy's recent news, I'm thrilled to tell you that boy and I are OFFICIALLY homeowners as of Saturday. It has been a long road . . . I haven't done much talking about it on the blog but let it suffice to say that if there ever were a Purple Heart for patience with the mortgage industry, boy and I deserve a pair of those medals. AND a bag of chips. Each.
The last five months have been trial by fire, but the fact that boy and I still want to get married makes me pretty confident that we'll stay married. I know our lives aren't going to be a neverending stream of cavorting around building things for the house out of twigs and hot glue, like in some HGTV show. Trust me, I haven't assigned any magical fantasies to our home ownership. But we just went though HELL, and I'm sort of glad we've been tested and are still standing. I know, as a couple, we're pretty handy in a crisis. Thats a good thing to know.
So . . . weekend roundup: OMG SO FREAKING BUSY! I did LOTS of jewelry making, boy and I bought and put together a little china cabinet for our dining room (hooray for my grandmother's crystal NOT being in boxes!), I went to my best friend from first grade's 30th birthday party (wrap your mind around THAT one!) and boy and I (I THINK!) found our wedding rings! How was your weeekend?
