It had been coming for a long time and it came out of the blue. It was the longest process ever but happened in the blink of an eye.
We were buying a house. Just like that.
Well…let me back up a minute.
We’d let our landlords know that our clothes dryer had broken in late October. They weren’t going to fix it. For real…they just weren’t going to fix it. That really was the last straw. We’d lived with a horrible toilet, a leaky door, sketchy neighbors and a non-working oven for two years now. This…this was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Somehow we found ourselves contacting our bank and at the beginning of November we were pre-approved to buy a house in Pierce County. How was this our life? Married for less than 2 months and buying a home.
