Keys....

We bought and sold my good dear friends and we are now the proud owners of a junky 2 bedroom condo!

I say that jokingly -- its a decent unit bones wise --- but boy to we have a huge list on he home improvement sheet and after living here the past 24 hours, the list has grown.

Apparently there was some really shoddy electrical work with the stove -- and its in really bad condition, so once we fix the outlet, a new stove and microwave will need to be put in.... and the bathroom is a nightmare.

but were making it work and we will tackle one project at a time.

It was hard to say good by to my first ever home, but once the stuff was out (and the people) it lost it's home feeling and was more like "space" ... albeit clean and nicer (and cleaner) then what we bought, but we'll get it there. I keep reminding myself this two bedroom is less junky then when I bought the first place.

I've got names and numbers to call for quotes and estimates so we'll get cracking. It will be better after a working stove and microwave come... and the bathroom gets better.

I'm still waiting for the rest of the pending charges to post, so once that happens, i'll have a full 8 year re-cap post and a post on the new place for all you number people.

But for now, we're in our new home.
