I know... I know... I am a terrible blogger. I have blogged on my COE blog and I have blogged (a tiny bit) for the Team Bacon! blog, but nary a word on my own personal blog. I have subjects lined up and everything, but they have just fell by the wayside. Part of the reason is that my hubby and I have been trying to buy a house... since January! After every hoop, crazy strange rules, changes in laws, monkey wrenches and general insanity... we finally became home owners two weeks ago. The house we bought is beautiful.... It is a 3 story, solid brick Victorian built in 1901. There are 5 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and 2 half baths.
here and they even have some notes in them if you want to look around.
You may also be able to see another issue in the kitchen... the back door. Both the back door, and the two basement doors had been kicked in. The place had been broken into before we first looked at it, and then subsequently broken into at least 5 more times after we started trying to buy it. The idiots broke a window in the basement, broke out the window above the back door, busted the doors (again, they had to be replaced anyway), and the last time stole some copper pipes in the basement. Excuse my french, but fuck them! Luckily, the house was under contract so we got some money back for the pipes.
flickr... because this isnt even a drop in the bucket of all the pictures. You havent even seen our four non-functinoal Rookwood fireplaces!
