Excellently Exciting!!

I was gonna wait, till I finished all my posts, but I can’t, I’m too excited!

I just moved!  {We know, Melinda, you just moved into “MY First Place All on My Own” 6 months ago.  So what’s news about that???

No, I mean I JUST MOVED!!  AGAIN!!  YESTERDAY!!

WHAT????

Yup!  I was bustin outta the seams of My First Place, what with ALL MY stuff, and ALL PP’s stuff, and then we have PP Jr. set to arrive in April…

And you know babies come with their own HOUSEFUL of stuff!

So…..  I decided on Saturday, 11/21/15 that I needed to move.  The next day, {Sunday the 22nd, for those of you like me who are calendar challenged}

I drove 1 street over, where I knew I had seen a for sale sign.  AS I was writing down the number, I hear a “HEY!”  I looked across the street, to see a woman motioning to me.  

“Are you looking to buy a place?”  Um, that would be why I’m writing down this phone number, yes….  Fortunately, I was able to keep that thought internal.   Go me!

I responded, “Yes.”   She said “I’m selling mine!”   How many bedrooms?

Two.   My ears and eyes perk up!   How much?   “$1,000.00.”    

Eeerch!!   You’ve never seen anybody drive across a street so fast!!

We sat down, after looking it over and made a deal!   Wednesday, when my expected check arrived, I RAN to the bank to cash it, and RAN back to give her the money!  She signed the title, and away I went to the tag office.   She forgot to sign the front, so I called her.  Thankfully, she was driving right by, so she stopped in and signed it.

Now I’m the proud owner of TWO homes!!  I never imagined in my whole life that I would be rich enough to own 2 homes!!  I better enjoy this  week, it won’t ever happen again!   I’m showing it tomorrow, and praying someone buys it before the first, when the rent is due!  {which is Tuesday, tomorrow!! for those of us who are calendar challenged.}

I don’t even have a picture, cuz I was so excited.  Why aren’t you surprised by that???  Gale_HenryUpdate:    I didn’t sell it for THREE months!!!    Yeah, so that was $1,000.00  in rent on an empty place.    😦    And I was only asking $1200!     So, I got desperate, and ended up selling it for just $10.00,  (YES!  TEN)  just to get it outta my name!!     The guy couldn’t hand me that Hamilton fast enough!!    And I’ll have that #1,100 loan paid off by June September 2017.     All’s well that ends well…
