So there is a reason I haven’t blogged in a long time. My husband and I took an enormous plunge into buying our first house. And it’s not just any house it’s a HUD house. A.k.a needs a lot of work. And ours is no different. In the last three weeks since we close October 5th. We have taken down half the ceiling and walls, disassembled a huge octopus heater and managed to get the trash people pissed at us. The house is only 2 miles from downtown Denver. And we got a rocki’n deal on the house even with putting a small fortune into the house before we even move in. But alas it’s our house.
