The American Dream


I have once again achieved the American Dream.  I closed on the house yesterday!  So after signing my life away, I am now in debt up to my eyeballs!  A true American dream!  🙂

I have been a very busy girl lately.  So please forgive my absence.  Things are progressing along.  I’m headed to the house this evening to take some measurements.  There is still a LOT to do before I move.  But I am just thrilled!

Yesterday morning, bright and early, I was at City Hall, waiting for the doors to open so I could get my water account set up with the city of Burleson.  While waiting, I had a few minutes to explore the immediate area.  The beautiful clock in the picture above is in “Old Town” Burleson, TX and immediately reminded me of my dear friend Audrey and her wonderful blog Minnesota Prairie Roots and photographs that you can find HERE.  She takes amazing pictures of small-town life and recently took a picture of an old clock similar to the one in the picture above.  Be sure to take a few minutes to visit her blog.  You won’t be disappointed!

I could have taken a picture of the stacks of boxes that I’ve packed or the over-grown lawn at the new place, but I thought you would appreciate the clock picture a lot more.  I will keep you posted as to my progress on the house as I can.

Thanks for being along for the journey!  Penny ❤

Waiting Game


Sometimes the world of finance moves slowly.  That is the case right now for me.  Everything is done.  I can’t do anything else but sit on my hands and wait.

It’s frustrating, but I also know that it’s part of the process.

Then, once the financing is done, I’ll have to wait for closing.  sigh…

Happy Blogging my friends!  ❤  Penny

On the Road Again


Movin’, movin’, movin’!  In case you’ve noticed, I’ve been rather quiet here lately.  I’m pre-occupied.  I am just starting the process of looking for a house to buy.  So my attention has been focused on that.

I know from past experience that buying OR selling a house, either one, can be very stressful.  I’m hoping I won’t go too crazy with the process.  🙂

I’ve found, what I think is an awesome Real Estate agent.  She seems to be very aggressive.

I’ve moved many, many times in my life.  What I am looking at will be my last home purchase, I hope.  A place to retire.  I’m pretty excited about the whole thing.

I’ve looked at just a few places so far.  Nothing that works.  But I should see a few more this week.  I will keep you posted on my new adventure!

Thanks for playing!  ❤ Penny
