The house is officially ours. We paid the rent and the deposit yesterday and started moving stuff in. The owners aren't quite finished with what they want to do but we are working around each other.
I am super excited and now my stress has to do with moving all of our stuff and not with still having to find a place in which to move it.
It's very close to my work and to his work. I am hoping this turns into a long term move. The potential is there for that so that's a good sign.
