I did it. OMG. I did it.
I took a giant, huge, scary step today.
I put an offer in on a house.
I kept going back to it time after time when scrolling through houses for sale in GA that I thought I could afford.
This house is less than what I thought I’d spend and I swear it called to me.
It is in a small town–a thing I was looking for.
I am beyond tired of big city life, the noise, the crowds, and crazy city life in general.
I have watched Allentown grow for 50 years and I was never thrilled of the changed that brought.
Yes, I love all the good restaurants, the farmers market, the theater on occasion, but life with Jay made me mostly a homebody anyway. We didn’t go out much.
I will miss my best friend G terribly but she’s only a phone call away when I need to talk.
I did get a huge surprise when my realtor friend stopped by today to begin the selling process. She valued my home at almost 3 times what I expected to get.
If she’s right, and sells it for what she thinks she can get, I will have enough money left over, after buying the new place, to make my new house everything I want it to be.
