Today is election day in the US. For us its a pretty big deal. Hell I am pretty sure the world is looking to see what happens in the US today/tonight. I cast my vote 2 weeks ago but I have been watching and waiting for tonight.

But the reason for this post is to talk about my new house! Amy and I are officially home owners! I am hoping this is a start to my new future. My credit is clean again and I have a mortgage payment. This is not my first house but its been 6 years since I have been a home owner.

It is a cute 3 bedroom 1.75 bath rambler in Renton, WA. Its about 1500sf on a 9k sq foot lot. Its been completely redone minus the kitchen cabinets. The house has a red door which our realtor thought was crazy (since the only houses we liked had red doors).

The packing will begin tomorrow and we will be moving the week of the 17th. I will be cooking my first thanksgiving in my new house this year.

The bad news of the day…Amy got laid off today. That totally sucks but I think we are going to be ok with the company bonus coming it can get us through 4 months if needed.

House Pics to come!
