Welcome To July’s Monthly Wrap Up
July has been a busy month. We did a thing…. We bought a house and closed within a week. We didn’t think our bid would be accepted and were shocked we got the house. In CA it’s a bit different when buying. No going back and forth. You put in your best offer and either they take it or not. The house we bided on had 15 bids put in on the day bids were accepted. Many people wanted the house.
With the new house I’ve not read this month and I’ve slowed down on signing up for book tours. My focus is on the house until renovations are done. We need all new Electrical, HVAC, updates, and more. I’ve been interviewing general contractor’s and HVAC company’s. We plan to renovate and redo a lot before moving. It’s a very big project. Talking to GC is scary and overwhelming, but we finally picked a contractor and are getting the ball rolling on designs and permits. Here are some pictures of how it looks now. I’ll be sharing on IG as the project moves along.
This summer I’ve bene waking up at 6am. That is unusual for me. I wonder if it’s because I’ve been making a point of walking the dog for 30 min to an hour every morning. Though I do need a nap in the afternoon now. ^_^ We have also had a bunch of morning camps this month. The Kid did Dungeons and Dragons one week, then a week off, and the last two weeks Tennis Camp. And, last we, both Mr. Angel and Myself, celebrated our Birthday’s this month.
