It had to happen sooner or later: I bought a house. The reasons to buy were many (and growing), and the reasons to continue renting were few (and probably only imaginary anyway). So when Team P decided to head West to sunny Denver, CO, everything fell in line. They needed to find a buyer quickly, and I was familiar enough with the house to know that I would enjoy living there. Today at 1:30PM or so... after what seemed like an endless series of financial hassles, 41 signatures, and a few dozen phone calls... I have a place to call my own.
It's a small house on a large lot. Most of the 0.61 acres of land are in the fully-fenced back yard. I've never been a big fan of yardwork, so I doubt I'll be able to maintain the two gardens, the landscaping, and the fish pond as well as Mrs. P did. But maybe yardwork won't bug me as much when it is my own crib.
My new address is:
311 S. Sporting Hill Road
Mechanicsburg, PA 17050
