New House

For a while now Austin and I have been trying to decide whether to buy a house or rent.  In our searching we came across a house, walked through it a couple of times, did the math and figured out it would be cheaper for us to buy this house than rent something considerably smaller.  We got a great deal on it, and signed the papers last Monday (April 1, 2013 - for journaling purposes).  
It needs a lot of TLC and work.  But we are excited to change pretty much everything and make it our own little house.

It is a three bedroom three bathroom and sits on 4.2 acres, and we found out after we signed and went over to pick up our keys that apparently the cat is included.  I'm not quite sure how to feel about that, especially since cats and I do not mix....ever.  

The seller must have been concerned about the cat's welfare, because two days after the deal went through Austin found that a 10 lb. bag of cat food had been conveniently delivered.  

If anyone is interested they can have a free gray cat and we'll throw in the cat foot and carrier for free.  In fact I'll pay you five dollars to take it.
