Home Sweet Home...

Well, I believe if you put things into the universe, they find their way to you. I said I wanted to buy a house this year. But I kept saying I'm not ready because I havn't saved any money. What if something breaks? Etc...Mostly, I'm afraid to hear that I can't get financed due to my past...(foreclosure, but it was over 10 years ago)

And then I went to my girlfriends to pick up a candle order, and noticed two houses down was for sale.

I kept thinking about it. It's in the same neighborhood I bought my house in when I was married, very decent, affordable, non-crackheady.

I took mom out over the weekend to see what she thought. Two car garage, fenced yard, giant front porch for sipping cocktails in my porch swing. Central a/c, remodeled kitchen, new furnace, new roof. Three bedrooms, one bath. 3 glorious stories for me and the fur herd.

So, whatever happens, happens - I'm taking a "step" toward my future. No more waiting on someone else to decide what they want before I make a move and that feels pretty damn good! Especially since I know that someone else couldn't find such an amazing deal on such a decked out house in that big city he refused to leave.

I remember how exciting it was when I decided to buy for the first time ... my condo nine years ago (and I'm still here).

I'm so happy that I've given myself the time to get myself back. Everything is coming back into perspective. So many good things are happening to me.

And I remember that the me I am proud to be, never lets anyone hold her back from her dreams.

full steam ahead!
