Cloudy With a Chance of Sunshine

I get it. Everyone hates my posts about sports. Yet I love sports and they are such a huge part of me. Nonetheless, I get that y'all don't like reading about them much. So...

I haven't shared with everyone yet that I'm considering buying a house. What prompted me to start looking you ask? Well I've mentioned that Matt will be moving here in the summer. I figured we'd get an apartment. However, after looking at a few properties and a few estimates the cost would be almost the same so why not own instead of rent? And in the next week I'll be making my final payment on my car! My car will be mine!!!

I'm extremely nervous just because buying a house is a huge step. Yet, all the signs are there encouraging me to buy. I've seen a few houses and I'm viewing another one tomorrow. I have to say that from the outside it's very cute. My parents and I walked around it and looked in the windows. Also cute. And we walked in the backyard. Big with tons of potential and I can see future fiestas happening there. I guess you can say I really love the house. If it's meant to be it will. Keep your fingers crossed.

Only other New Patty news is that I had to cancel my Curves membership. Are the Curves in everyone else's cities closing too? They merged two Curves making it's new location very far. And transferring was not an option because the others near me also closed. Boo hoo! To make up for this I've finally started walking at a park near my house with my cousin. The weather is getting nicer and great walking weather.

Slowly but surely I'm still embarking on my journey. All I know is that I'm definitely walking on new ground and that however frightening it is, it's also extremely exciting.

Aw, it's your blog. Post about sports if you want to! I think it's endearing that you have this obsession, and it reminds me of a girlfriend who is obsessed with the Reds.

Buying a house! The possibility is so exciting, isn't it? Good luck. Plus, congrats on paying off your car - that's a really big deal.
