The Qwest to Keep a Phone Number

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in House

Strangely enough, I was told for the second time that I could not keep my phone number for moving across town. This may seem natural enough in New York or L.A. where I may be crossing area codes, but not so much here in Pocatello. Especially not when I know so many people who have […]

Getting Our Floors Done and Painting

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in House

Today the hardwood guys are coming in to sand and stain our floors in the living room, study, office, and front hallway. We chose a nice dark mohogany stain, though I'm about to head over to see what he would recommend. I know it would go wonderfully with the colors we have selected, but I […]

The Home is a Go!

We signed our paperwork friday and are eagerly awaiting the return of it from Wyoming where the sellers are living. Everything's smack-on for Tueday and we'll get the keys then.

Well, the house offer is in progress.

We have accepted the counter-offer from the sellers and are meeting with the inspector on Tuesday morning to find out the laundry-list of everything wrong (and maybe a couple of things right) with the house. Hopefully there won't be any big show-stoppers along the way. So now instead of simply dreaming (as I was before […]

More House Stuff

I'm a dreamer, of course, and I sure wish I were more of a realist sometimes! I've spent a goodly amount of time thinking about the house that we put an offer down on. It's the one I blogged about the day before yesterday, and it is a very nice home. But I keep thinking […]
