Sometimes it's difficult to make a change... we are creatures of habit, we thrive within the sameness of our days for the most part.  Occasionally we like to shake things up a bit, but as I grow older I find it much harder to take that leap of faith... into the unknown.  I wrap the sameness of my circumstances, (my home, my job, my relationships) around me like a warm familiar blanket... and I am comfortable.

 I write this as a precursor - for there may be a change coming in the near future for me. A good change, I hope. Nevertheless, I am squirmy, nervous, uncomfortable, stressed, and terrified.  Can you guess what is going to change for me?  Ayup, it's HOME OWNERSHIP! 

I decided to start a informal journal, so to speak, of my adventures in acquiring and hopefully "owning" my first home.  Little by little, I hope to share with you the challenges, the humor, the joy, the terrifying awfulness of taking that "leap of faith" into the deep waters of financial burden and distinct personal satisfaction.  Bear with me folks.  I think it's going to be a hellava dive!

  1. I love that photo - so peaceful. Change is getting more difficult than in my younger days. Home ownership should be a good change. Good luck.
