On Monday I made an offer on a house. It is basically exactly what I was looking for, with the exception of the fact that the lot is only 8,000 sqft. I was hoping to find something with a half acre+, but I put that aside when I figured out that would put me pretty far outside the city.

Tuesday passed with no word.

Wednesday passed with almost no word.

Thursday afternoon, the seller's gave me a counter offer and today I am accepting that.

I am pretty excited to get out of apartment living, I am excited to have a yard to barbecue in, and I am excited to get a tax deduction.
