Today’s the day! We closed on our first house! It took four hours longer than planned because some papers weren’t done, and we had to sit there and wait for the title company to receive them. In the meantime, we talked with the sellers about the previous owner and got to know them better. Our realtor ended up buying us gift from Bronner’s.
This really made my day because I knew I couldn’t make it there this year, as I try to make it a yearly tradition to get one new ornament a year with the year on it somewhere. Her ornament couldn’t be more perfect! It was a cute little house with the year and our new address on it.
When we finally finished signing and received our keys, I headed back to the apartment to get my house cleansing tools and cleaning supplies for the house. My first order of business was “anti-spooking” my house. With the help of Etain, we got every floor/room cleansed by smudging, holy watering, vibrational cleansing, and blessing with oil. My home was finally ready for moving!
Shortly after we completed the cleansing, Etain had to be on her way. My mom and her partner showed up to help with the physical cleaning and got a tour of the new place. We washed down counter tops, walls, and steam cleaned the carpet. Unfortunately the previous owner was a heavy smoker, so before we paint this spring we have to use a special paint/primer to cover the smell of nicotine.
My home was finally starting to feel like mine. I love my back yard and i can’t wait to see what awesome things are under all that snow. It couldn’t have been a better day. I felt like it was a great starting point, and I was already so eager to show my future step-daughter her new room. She had a christmas recital to go to for her cousin, so she came later in the day. We didn’t have anything moved into the house yet so we went back to the apartment and slept there for our last night.
I did not have any stones readily available. Everything seemed to be covered in snow. I kept finding random change throughout the day, so I charged these pennies as good luck pennies, to be dispersed later on. Etain shared with me one of her rocks she made for the challenge, and gave me an envelope that is sealed to be opened in a year. They both reside on my prosperity altar with my Buddha.
