Have you noticed that I havent been around much? Because I am now the proud owner of my own home!!! Yes, congratulate me, I deserve this. Ive been working for 5 years to get this accomplished. Ive been socking money away, and working 2nd jobs all to get enough dough to actually be able to sign the papers... only 3% actually went toward it, the rest is the fees that go with actually purchasing a home. Many people will add those fees into their actual amount that they borrow but I have a distinct fear of credit. Aftering looking at what is called an amortization schedule, (You must see one of these before you pull the trigger) I believe its absolutely disgraceful to pay interest on those fees. You see with my mortgage, very standard FHA type... It will take me 18 years before more than 50% of my mortgage payment, actually applies to my home, and the interest fees fade away from there, scary stuff, but you know what is even scarier? My effing landlady. That was enough to get my ass out, that, and the fact that home prices were rapidly going out of reach. Fellas, I have not experienced a better feeling than walking away from a day of signing papers and receiving a set of keys that are MINE!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!! I wish I had done this sooner. Seriously. A complete lifestyle cange and exactly what Ive been looking for. Nothing more exciting than daily trips to Home Depot, or as I like to call it... "Holmie Da pot!!!" To add to this, my corporate office is also on the move. Shortly I'll be in a very stylish, wickedly awesome open aired corporate environment, no more cube farm!!! This is a really exciting time for me and just what the doctor ordered. Mild depression has been setting in (One side of my hair is growing faster than the other :p) and now, I simply do not have the time to feel shitty about anything, this is great!!! However, due to the corpoate move, I havent been able to take any time off during this process!!! Life in an IT department will do that to you!!! Anyways, if any of you guys find yourselves near Philly, even for a layover, you know who you need to look up!!!! Oh and PS those awful shrubs will DIE!!!!
I'm home tonite my hips don't lie. . .
haha nice house man.. not better than mine :P joke.. its better.. can we see the interior and sewers connections please?..
Christen the new home immediately. :naughty:
Make sure to get every room too ;)
Nice looking house, stylie. And yes, the shrubs must die. Tip for next to the driveway: Hostas; the perfect plant. Plant them one year and they come back forever with practically no maintenance whatsoever. Hosta - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A small tree might look nice in the yard as well. No idea what to do in place of the death-row shrubbery.
In the Spirit of the Knights of Ni:
Knight of Ni: We want.....
(pregnant pause) A SHRUBBERY!!!! (minor music)
Arthur: A WHAT? Knights of Ni: Ni! Ni!! Ni! Ni! Arthur; No! No! Please, please, no more! We will find you a shrubbery. Knight of Ni: You must return here with a shrubbery... or else you will never pass through this wood... alive. Arthur: O Knights of Ni, you are just and fair, and we will return with a shrubbery. Knight of Ni: One that looks nice. Arthur: Of course! Knight of Ni: And not too expensive. Arthur; Yes! Knight of Ni: Noowwwww.... GO!
Sorry had to do it. Shrubbery is like the most awesomest english word I an think of. ^^
Nice house Stylie, congrats :) And yes, you have to remove those ugly shrubs.
I would see a honeysuckle hedgerow, or some liquidambar trees ;)
