Life has been so overwhelming, but also extremely exciting at the same time. We bought a house this past week. It’s amazing and perfect for us. I feel safe there, the community is wonderful. Security is a huge thing for me. Where we currently live, I have an anxiety or panic attack every time someone knocks on the door. There are also random gunshots at night. I don’t feel safe walking my dog. I don’t have any of these problems in our new community. There’s a neighborhood watch, the cops patrol the area, and I feel comfortable waving to people (and they even wave back). I can’t wait to move into our new house.
Buying a house is so exciting, but there’s also so much to it. It can be overwhelming just making sure that all of the papers are signed properly. We may even have a tag sale before we move so we can get rid of some of the stuff we don’t want. I don’t want to do the tag sale because I don’t want to deal with strangers. So I decided that if my brother-in-law does it all, then I would split the money with him. I’ll have to talk to him about that soon and see what he says.
