Home, Sweet, Home

Ever since we moved to Washington we have been crammed in tiny apartments while we decided if we wanted to stay in Washington, DC. Last summer we made the decision to buy a house and stay.  Almost as soon as we started looking at homes, we found a house that we liked: an old Sears Bungalow-style house in the historic district of the racially and economically diverse town of Hyattsville, MD. That stars magically lined up, and a buyer who put in an offer just before we did dropped out, and suddenly the house was ours.

The process of buying the house was fraught with all sorts of anxiety. We moved in about a month ago. Today I bought a new faux-Oriential rug from Ikea for my office. The room is taking on a weirdly Moroccan look. I bought a dog bed so Buck can look up at me adoringly while I fuck around on the internet. It makes me realize just how much I miss having my own place and my own room. I am feeling more settled than I have in a long time. It's a feeling I've longed for.

Awesome news! You'll have to post some pics when you get around to it. I'm really happy for Buck, i know it was bugging him that he had no real bed to lay on while he looked at you adoringly. :D
