We are now the proud owners of 2 homes
On Sunday Jason and I returned to San Antonio to close on our house. We stayed one night in a hotel, and on Monday we closed and got the keys. We spent 2 nights in our empty home, and now are in Peoria for Thanksgiving. After spending 3 days in a completely empty home, I have a whole new appreciation for furniture. Jason went to work during the day while I ran errands, met with the guys to get the necessary utilities and services set up. I also took measurements and ordered furniture. On Wednesday I met with the Dish Network guy, the Pool Guy, and the ADT security system guy. We discovered some new things about our home. There is a train that goes through San Antonio, and I'm told I will get used to the intermittent horn tooting. All of our lights have a dimmer switch. The previous owner left us a tv in the bathroom. It is difficult to figure out which of the 15 keys goes with which of the 15 locks. You will lock yourself out of the home if you close the door behind you and don't have the keys. Jason can unlock windows with a piece of wire. It is very cold if you go to bed on an air mattress in late November in San Antonio, and don't turn on the heat. When you are very cold at night, cuddling with your spouse helps. It is very nice to fly with your technically sound husband, because he plays movies on his laptop for you during the flight. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
