The (mis)Adventures of a SFH
SFH = Single Female Homeowner
Almost 6 months ago I made one of the biggest moves in my entire life - purchasing my first home. It wasn't something that even a year before that I even contemplated doing. I am a single woman, 28 years old, with a large amount of student loans and a terrible habit for buying what I want. How the heck was I supposed to afford to buy a house?! But then the government did a magical thing and offered me $8000 dollars if I bought a house. $8000?! Seriously? With the encouragement of my hockey team captain (who is also a stellar realtor) I began thinking about buying a house and wondering how I was going to afford it. Eventually, I found my perfect starter home! A week after seeing it I made my offer and was under contract.
More about me - I'm a children's librarian by profession, hockey player by choice, and most recently have turned into a DIY diva-extraordinaire. Or at least I like to pretend that I am. While I'll mostly write about my adventures as a homeowner, I'll occasionally regale you with tales from the library or the rink...or where ever else the unexpected and ridiculous happens. I'll try to catch up on most things that have happened from offer day in August until now - and I'll do my best to keep it in chronological order. Because I like order. And organization. And label making and sticky notes. Not to mention acronyms. TYVM.
Follow me, put me in your reader, and comment whenever you feel inclined (or disinclined) to do so. I thrive on positive reinforcement. Please, love me! /begging
