Diving in Head First

Today I dove off the high dive.

I bought the house.

When I walked away I was consumed with regret.

I couldn't stop thinking about it. All weekend.

Even on vacation.

It was always on my mind.

It was my house.

The thought of someone else living there was too much to bear.

So today I signed the papers and handed over the earnest deposit.

In mid December, the middle of winter, in central Iowa...

I will move to my new home.


  1. That's exciting. When you feel something that strongly you have to go with it. Good luck with the move!

  2. ok, the thing that i noticed most about this post was that you actually used bold font and an underline. still all periods, though - no exclamation points. buying a new house totally deserves exlamation points. (note that i didn't use any in this comment because that would be too obvious.)

    i hope you don't think i'm stalking you or too creepy or anything. it's just kind of interesting to follow a total stranger who has put herself out there in public. wait - did that make me sound more or less creepy?
