"Moving"

I promised you some news, and I will get to that in a minute.

First, though, a brief recap of yesterday (which will look a lot like today). Spent the morning and early afternoon working, except for one break because I was feeling mischievous, and another for lunch. Then sat on the beach for an hour or so reading before Munchkin came home. Cocktails on the deck, The Boy made dinner on the grill and we ate while we watched the sun go down:-)

Munchkin was pretty beat, so she turned in early and The Boy and I sat on the deck outside our bedroom and watched the ocean and the moon for a while. And maybe got a little more mischievous...hee hee. In other words, a pretty darn nice day!!! Hopefully more of the same today:-)

Anyway...news...

As of August 4, I will officially be a homeowner:-) That is the day that we will officially write a gigantic check to Smoking Hot Roommate, have the Bank write her a way more gigantic check, and have her hand over the keys (figuratively, of course...I already have the keys:-P)

I am incredibly excited about this! As I have written here before, I absolutely love our condo, and have considered it to be "home" for a long time now. I know that people a little older than me tend to start fleeing for the suburbs, but I have no intention of doing that, and The Boy is on the same page. I have never lived in the 'burbs and don't want to try, and he has lived there and doesn't want to go back...convenient, eh? Could we change our mind in 5 years? Sure...but for now, we plan to live here for a very, very long time.

I am also kinda proud of myself:-). I have saved a lot of money over the last four years for this purpose, and that feels good. I would be lying if I said that my income (which will be pretty minimal for the next two years;-)) was going to cover half of the cost of the mortgage every month, but I am pretty comfortable with how much I have saved to contribute to the down payment. And let's be honest...The Boy just makes way more money than me...nothing I can do about that right now:-)

So there you have it...in a couple of weeks, I am moving into my very own place. And I don't have to pack a single box!!!

Does this mean that Munchkin has to actually do her chores now?
