Breaking news!

After renting for the last 10 years (single and being married) my husband and I having finally bought a house. It's a 3 bed/1.75 bath, 1,920 sq. ft, 2 story, built in 1951, new windows, paint, countertops, cabinets, fixtures, everything really...3 FIREPLACES! Fenced backyard with FULL SUN (gardening here I come!), comes with ALL appliances (no more hand-washing dishes or picking for quarters to do the laundry, also with a GAS stove). It's one block off of 6th Ave in North Tacoma, very convenient to everything. The seller is a little old widowed lady that's been there for 30 years and is now moving out to be with her family.

The closing date is January 8, 2009 so that gives us just enough time to get through the holidays, give our landlord 20 days notice, pack, move and get settled. The new place is less than 3 m…

Turning 29

About 10 minutes after I woke up this morning my husband had to remind me that today was in fact my birthday...is this what happens when you're almost 30? I still don't feel almost 30, still feeling almost 25...maybe I won't feel it till I'm 35. Maybe I'm just 5 years behind what's normal, does that mean that when I was born I was -5 years old? Sorry...brain fart.
