Day 3 Challenge is to write a journal entry that your ancestor may have written about buying their first home. I chose to write about my mother, Patricia Murphy Adamson.
Dick and I have bought our first home! The house is on Rosalind in Peoria Heights. I am so excited to have a home to move into. Since we got married last April we have lived in a cramped basement apartment in Chicago for the last 9 months (and the last month with a newborn baby) and it has been awful (although I loved living in Chicago). It will be so nice to be back in Peoria near Mom and Dad. And as excited as I am about having our first home, I am not happy that Dick insisted on buying a home a couple of doors down from his sister and father. But his mother just died, so I think that he needs to be close to his family. I just don't want it to become a problem. There is a nice yard for Susie to play in when she gets a little older and other homes being built around us, so I am hoping for some neighbors I can spend time with. It was awfully lonely being alone in Chicago and not knowing anyone, except for my Uncle Joe. I'm excited to decorate as we can afford!
