I Have A Slice of the American Dream and It is a 30 Year Nightmare
Well, we did it. We are buying a beautiful, brand new house, planning our wedding, and getting ready to move. The cramped trailer we have lived in will just be a memory. The house we are buying is a 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, 2 car garage slice of the American Dream.
However, my fiance and I sigh and realize it is a 30 year nightmare we will be paying on for a long time before it is truly ours. By the time the house is paid for, we will be too old to travel like we wanted to. England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales will just have to wait. Well, at least we will get Senior Discounts.
But, knowing I will be getting married in my house and gliding down my stairs toward my intended while the stereo plays and our friends and family look on, is going to be worth it. Getting married at home is going to be something we remember and we will be able to enjoy a nice honeymoon with the money we saved. Maybe even rent a nice vehicle to pretend is ours.
The house is in the process of being built now and we watch it's progress each Sunday. Hopefully, it will be completed in about 3 weeks. It is amazing how much work goes into a house and how plans on paper become reality.
When we burn the mortgage papers in 30 years I want a big bonfire and I will dance around it with my husband, children and grandchildren. Then I will pack my bags and make that trip I always wanted to make and complete some more things on my "do before I die" list. At least "buy a new house" is checked off on my long list. What's next? oh, I see, it says "write a best selling novel"...hmmmmmmmm.
