sooooo guess what!
lol but really, we got a house! this morning we had an apointment with the housing people to look at a house. we got all prepped up but at the same time remained calm. we didnt want to get our hopes up and it end up being ugly or in an area we didnt want - some of the houses are realllllllllly far away and i have my eye on some houses really close to the gym..... anyways, we get there and the lady tells us to follow her to the house. we start going and i quickly realize she is going in the opposite direction of the houses i want!
NNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i had really hoped i could ride my (future) bike to the gym! she takes us into the neighorhood across from the base. (the ones i wanted were actually inside) all i can think is oh great... now i have to dig out my id every time i want in base...........jdfhgajdfbdsjcb
a turn here, a turn there, the houses in the neighborhood are a bit more varied; one story, two story, connected, singled. not house clones like the ones actually in the base. (the ones outside are still considered base housing though...weird) the houses look a little older too. i notice kid toys and playground stuff in a lot of the yards.....goodie, bring on the peer pressure, lol. then the lady parks. parellel parks! the parking sucks!!!!!!! she shows me to a more reasonable parking spot and then we are here. the building is like six houses stuck together (like townhouses) 4 two-story and a 1 story on each end. mMMMMm <--- like that. we go inside one of the middle ones.
HOLY COW!!!!!!!! the house is huge! the lady is blabing on about something while im trying to pick my jaw up off the floor..... giant living room attatched to i guess a dining area??? (perfect spot for a foosball table) twards the back is the kitchen and kitchen area. there is a mini back yard (perfect place to practice hooping or to stash a lil rat dog) and a shed for storage. passed the gate is easy to park covered parking for residence. back inside i catch lil things i missed at first, a mini bar area, all the cabinets, a half bath and coat closet under the stairs. go upstairs and the first thing you hit is the master bedroom. it has its own bathroom and is a decent size with 2 closets. down side is they are small. where the hell am i going to put all my clothes?! right across from the master is bedroom number 2. my office/dressing room/closet!!!!!!!! eeeeeekkkkkk!!!!!!! dreams really do come true! <3 go down the hall some more and you get the washer and dryer hookups! yeah we have to provide our own but still its worth it, getting to do laundry whenever the hell i want! no more searching for quarters! and last you come to the upstairs bathroom. yup you heard me! count it- 1, 2, 1/2! 2 1/2 bathrooms! and thats it. thats our beautiful home! we signed the papers! the distance isnt too bad, i can still ride my bike to the gym. there is a gym in the neighborhood but i like the big one on base. we are looking foward to a fun weekend of moving. its not like we were told we were gonna be in temp housing for longer than a month right, peice of cake!....oh wait...... :/ so we did get a little settled, haha but its whatever, WE GOT A HOUSE!
oh i almost forgot! :) at the very very very end of the hall there is this random room. its so weird, its like we have a 3 bedroom house or something..... what ever will i do with that room? XD
oh and in other news i locked the keys in the car again.......... was stuck at a gas station for 3 hours....
WE GOT A BIG HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!
pictures still to come......
