We put an offer in on a condo/ apartment earlier in the week. Our current living space is quite small, around 450 square feet (All you house- owners just gasped. I can hear you!), so it will be so nice to double that space.
We would be able to actually cook together, have barbecues in the little yard, and be able to host friends for movies comfortably. We would be able to fit more than a loveseat and chair in the living room, separate our working and living spaces and have room for a big walk-in closet.
I have already started thinking about a color scheme for our new living room- thinking of basing it on this fabric in tones of blue, taupe and brown:
Casey’s mom is a real estate agent so she is handling the details of negotiation, which I am very happy about since it is stressing me out and I am not even involved first hand. It seems the seller and her agent are playing hardball so hopefully we will be able to afford it once they are done playing their games. I guess it is just not meant to be if it doesn’t happen… but I know we both will be disappointed.
It is scary to think about living in a new town- the condo is in Charlestown, a part of Boston. The town is a lot different than Cambridge, where we currently live, and that is exciting and overwhelming at the same time. It is closer to my brother and his girlfriend, which is a good thing. (My mom is happy about that idea, of course.)
I am so impatient. I just want to know either way, you know?
Anyway, keep your fingers crossed for us…
