Well, things have been going better than expected! I can finally talk about the condo we're buying.
Willy and I managed to stumble upon a condo in Germantown, MD. It's got two bedrooms, a bathroom, a nice sized living room, a big balcony, aaaaand... a fireplace! It's on the top floor too, so big vaulted ceilings. Nice. We're supposed to go to settlement in early September, so we're hoping that all goes well so that we can move out/in soon. I tell ya what, I'm looking forward to that enormous master bedroom! Plus, the balcony will be big enough (for now..) for me to have some nice plants.
Here's hoping the cat doesn't eat them!
