Big News (Or, Where The Hell Have You Been, ModFab?)

Sorry I've been out of commission for the last few days. I've been working for almost three months on a big new chapter of my personal life, and it took an enormous amount of my time and psychic space. And it all became real and final yesterday.

The ModFab HQ is now a reality. Because I (and Mr. ModFab) have...


Yes, BOUGHT. In the toughest real estate market in America and in the middle of a disastrous mortgage crisis, somehow we have found the American Dream a way out of renters' hell.

And it's gorgeous, if I do say so myself. I spent most of Friday painting accent walls, and it was more emotional than I ever anticipated...having a space of my own, our own. The co-op building (we're on the top floor, woo hoo!) has gorgeous landscaping, stunning amenities, a bay window overlooking the Hudson River, and a mere 20-minute commute into midtown Manhattan. (It's also much bigger and nicer than our current place, which gives off the constricted aura of a prison cell.)

I'll be moving at the end of next week, so I don't know how much I'll be around over the next few days. But trust that I didn't die, I just became a housewife with a new kitchen (with brand-new appliances!) and I'm enjoying it far more than I ever expected. And did I mention I have a private pool now? Don't hate...

That's great! Congratulations to you and Mr. ModFab on becoming homeowners. I've never had the joy. It must be so thrilling!

aw how exciting. the first place is always special :) When dazpants and i moved into our first place i was emotional - because it had no kitchen or bathroom and we lived that way for four weeks. I did sob when we left though ;)

You get your first place, i finally find a copy of Jewel doing the Cold Song... it's a good week all round!

Hearty congratulations, ModFab! Ironically, homeownership can be downright liberating (especially from landlords). All the best to both of you as you move into your new home!
