I own this


I own this house, or rather, I own half of this house. Half of everything inside and out is mine. That huge tree, yes half is mine. Those front steps, yes they are now my responsibility. I now own things like a bathtub and a front door.

We signed all the paperwork yesterday morning and then rushed off to work. After work we stopped by the house, our house and let ourselves in with our very own key.

It felt great, and overwhelming and scary and exciting. I wanted to move in right that second. I wanted my cat there and our bed. I wanted to sit on the couch in our new living room or make a snack in the kitchen.

Those things will have to wait. Sunday morning we fly to Baltimore for five days. Once we return, then the moving can begin, that is after the cleaning and polishing and fussing.


  1. Congratulations on your house! It looks totally awesome.

    I finally got around to reading Cryptonomicon. I’m not finished with it yet, but probably will be after the weekend. It’s so great! You should have hounded me more to read it when you were in Madison. What other Neal Stephenson books are good?

  2. Congratulations!!!!! I can’t wait to see pictures of the inside after you both give it your personal touches. I hope Zoe feels right at home.
