Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

The bank accepted my offer. Next week I drive to Massachusetts to sign the official offer stuff, get a lawyer, etc. It is a buyer's market, folks. I got a great deal on a very nice little house (1,700 sq feet, 8 rooms). It has an eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, large living room, great office space, 4 bedrooms (2 up, 2 down), 1 bath down, 1/2 bath up.

In addition it has great light, hardwood floors in great shape, a 2 car garage, a finished basement, 2 fireplaces (one in living room, one in basement family room), storage shed, fenced yard, mature trees and plantings. From what we can tell prior to inspection, it only needs cosmetic improvements (paint, wallpaper, etc.)

So I am pretty happy, very thankful, and getting ready for the happy day when I move into my very first home that I own. I have been a renter since age 19.

One of the biggest joys? I get to have a pooch again.

Joy! Joy!

Gee, think there was any relation to my getting a house and my finally surrendering this all to God? Well, DUH!!!

Thank you and warm hugs to all who have endured this process and who have been encouraging and supportive friends since I started looking in November of 2006. It will be almost a year...bless you all for your kindness.

I'm very happy for you. It will make lovely reading, I think, when you begin to post pictures of your new digs and new experiences waiting to happen there.
