Our lives are about to change in big big ways. (and no, I'm not pregnant)
Sean graduates in May. He'll have a law degree, a doctorate! It Europe, that means he has a title (Barrister). It's pretty damn cool.
It also means that we're no longer bound to Kansas City. But, we've come to love it. And we're thinking about staying - much to our families' dismay.
We're seriously considering buying a house. So much, in fact, that we're going to talk to a bank in January. The biggest issue is that I'm the only person who can be on the loan - Sean's loans will completely negate anything else. We've got plenty for a downpayment on an FHA loan - as long as my salary is enough for a loan (which it should be, since the only debt tied to me is my student loans).
While I would love to stay here in south KC - we don't want to spend the amount we'd have to in order to live down here (and we can't afford that either!). We'll have to work up to it. But a house in north KC? We can get a LOT of space in a fix-it up home for super cheap. As long as it's liveable, we're totally okay with fixing it up - we'd rather flip a house anyway.
We're about to transition our lives. With Sean graduating, we're no longer attached to the school - we're starting to hang out more with our north town friends (another pro to living up there), and the places we hang about equidistant anyway. We're thinking about real jobs, company cars, and babies. We're gonna wait until January on this - mostly so I can pay off at least one of my student loans (there's only $300 left - hellllloooo Christmas money!).
But right now? Right now I'm just thinking about a new haircut. ;)
