We've been looking at houses=)


Ok, remember back in the day when I was fretting over whether or not to move in with LC, read this post. It was posted quite some time ago. Well, ladies, we spent the entire morning on Saturday looking at houses. I decided to go for it. LC and I have been living together since October. Yes, things have moved quickly, but I just know he's the one. I love him and can't imagine a day without him. I mean I could do without all the incessant complaining over my shopping habit, but nonetheless, it's a small annoyance that I've learned to tune out. One of my friends calls me a "late bloomer". I acquired my "first, real" job when most people have been working for oh say about 5 years. I decided to enjoy life, go to grad school, obtain another degree (well, almost. just need to write my thesis), and not use it. So with that being said, I cannot afford a house in the area I would like to live in:( The thing is I will not be taking part in qualifying for the loan or putting my name on the deed. We're not married, and in due time, that will come. I pay rent now to an apartment, and it's really no different than paying rent to LC. I can decorate things how I want, paint walls, plant flowers, and I can do all of this without fear of damaging something, landscapers ruining my flowers, new light fixtures, etc. I know some of you might disagree, and I get that. Awhile back, I disagreed. I was scared. I was scared of what happened with TWOS. But you know what, LC isn't TWOS. LC is LC. I love him more than he'll ever know. I love him more than words can describe. So, for me, this is the right decision. I am signing a 6 mo. lease with my apartments since it's about that time. That way it will give us time to find a house and make the necessary renovations to make it liveable i.e. updated kitchen and bathrooms, painting, moving, etc. So, I will definitely keep you all in the loop.
