It's also a little crazy how *everything* seems to be in Leesburg. My gym, a yoga studio, Let's Dish, our vet...it just goes on and on. We'd be close to the W&OD trail for biking and Harper's Ferry/the AT for hiking.
So we're still saving money like mad, and have a target date of September-November 2011. We should be able to sell this place to at least cover our closing costs. We're aiming for a 10% down-payment (had to come to terms with that mentally) so I've adjusted the savings goal meter in the bottom right accordingly.
In the meantime, two sentiments were thrown my way today. Tom Petty came up on shuffle on my ipod in the car:
So when you feel yourself starting to covet something, force yourself to think bigger. Want your friend's gorgeous house? Sure! But I hope you also want that friend's spouse, family, job, education, politics, faith, appearance, angels, demons, everything, because that's what your friend has. Chances are, in weighing someone you envy as a whole package deal, you're going to hit something you don't want -- or, just something of yours you wouldn't want to give up.Happy Friday the 13th - mine was pretty mundane. I only have 371 days left in my 20s!
