So not only do I have one piece of exciting news to reveal, I have two!!
1st & foremost is that I am officially OFF MY CRUTCHES, and able to put weight on my leg & drive!! What a relief. I had an appointment today up at Rush in Chicago with my doc & he said I'm good to go! I had my fingers crossed that I would get the green light from him to be able to start walking & driving, but I didn't want to get my hopes up too much. But got great news!
2nd piece of news is that Joe & I bought a house in a neighboring town that we are planning to flip & sell in hopes of making a nice little profit to put down on our house that we plan to build. So we are officially homeowners together! This is the first home that I have owned. We have so many plans for it to update it and make it a perfect starter home. It's a brick bungalow, two bedrooms, two car garage, full basement. It's got beautiful etched windows & amazing trim throughout. The bathroom & kitchen will be updated & probably the back porch area. We got the house for a great deal & we can't wait to start working on it. We will live there for a few months or longer then we will put it on the market & hope to get the ball rolling on the house we plan to build sooner than later! We are very excited & looking forward to starting this new adventure & we will be able to start sooner since I will be able to walk again!
