Just popping in and out to let you know that we bought a house today!!! Woohoo! After more than two weeks of stressing about it! It actually took that long to finally come to an agreement, but thank heavens we don’t have to go through another weekend of waiting. It was maddening, lol!
The house we bought is a characteristic, old house in the historical city centre of Utrecht. The houses in the street originate from the Middle Ages – there’s an old city castle from 1467 right across the street – and no traffic is allowed there. After a big fire in 1903 most of the buildings were (partly) reconstructed and in the years after that our house has been renovated and modernized of course. We do have running water and central heating, don’t worry. ;)
If nothing weird happens, we’re going to move there in August. *big, big happy sigh*
Meanwhile I’ve been neglecting all the blogs I love to read and I’ve been rarely and very irregularly on Twitter and Goodreads. I feel horrible about that, while at the same time I can’t even promise that it’ll get better soon. Because it probably won’t… with everything we have to start doing now to organize The Move. OMG, I’m getting stressed all over again just thinking about it. *g* But at least now we know that we don’t have to live under a bridge in a cardboard box when we come back from our vacation. ;)
Thanks so much for all your positive thoughts and good wishes from the past weeks. I believe they helped. :)
Happy Gay Friday everyone!~
