We finally got the house!




These past few weeks have been HELL on earth. First off we sold our house - that was a breeze. The real horror started with finding our dream house and then being chewed up and spit out for 8 weeks while trying to buy it. I consumed Popeye’s every day for weeks, it was WINE-o’clock every night by 7pm, and I probably wasn’t the nicest mommy that whole time either.

But finally, that house is ours. After a bidding war, 3 appraisals, 4 episodes of re-locking our rate, notary’s mailing paperwork to the wrong people, and countless (642) emails, that effing house is ours!! Maxim Properties, you did not beat me!

PS - It's back to posting regularly for me!!  I'm making it a "me" priority.

Selling and buying, in that order, is a nail-biting, wine guzzling experience! Happy new homeownership!

Best,
Bonnie

"WINE-o’clock every night by 7pm" Don't you mean noon? ;) :)

Congratulations, the home is beautiful. I think your first dish at the new kitchen should be a Maxim Pie and you should make it with lots of crow. ;)
