Mommy, wow! I'm a big kid now!

July will go down in my memory as a very grown-up month.

July 2: Attended a bbq with M's family, saw fireworks (randomly) and said goodbye...

July 3: My best friend since kindergarten had her first child, a boy, via natural birth.

July 4: Spent the day with newer friends but never once felt awkward or ignored. Saw fireworks too! M also left today to drive to Texas. She's moving to be closer to her boyfriend.

July 7: Found out the bank has accepted the offer I placed in May on a townhouse!

July 11: Had a home inspection done, to the tune of $275. Found out there's some water stains in the attic and storage closet due to some moisture issues. Have to replace the hot water heater too and do a major cleaning of the place.

July 12: Signed loan documents! AHHHH! Part of me is excited about the future yet still very cautious. I'll breathe a sigh of relief and get excited after I close and have the keys in my hands.

To be done:

Hear if my loan got approved.

Close on August 8th.

Get decorating ideas.

Pick out new carpet and paint.

Go through my storage unit - get rid of stuff if necessary.

Find a white over-the-cabinet microwave

Do a major deep clean!

Move in.
