Despite my concern that I would never be able to own a house…I bought a house.

For whatever reason, I have always had this idea in my head that home ownership is a scam. Nevertheless, Michael really wanted to own a house. As did everyone else in the family. Now, it did turn out I was right—I wound up losing the house. Still, it was fun while it lasted.

We'll…ahem…looks like we've gone and done it. We put an offer on a house, and it's been accepted. It'll take a month or two before we can actually move in. But arguments over wall colors among all concerned parties have already begun, with even ten-year-old Zachary expressing an opinion ("I like brown.")

We surround ourselves with an impenetrable wall of moving boxes.

The date for our move into our new home is fast approaching…even though we aren't certain what that date is. But it'll probably be either next weekend or the one after. And so, we are packing.

In which we FINALLY see some of the rooms of our new home!

It was just a few months ago that I posted photos of the interior of our new house. Of course, that was before we moved in, and before we repainted (the previous owners seem to have been inordinately fond of dark brown walls). Although the place is still not 100% ready for prime time, a few rooms are web-worthy and so, without further ado, I am happy to present them to you.
