Yesterday was a good day. We got to visit the house again and walk through with the inspector – everything seems peachy keen. A few items he recommended be addressed, but nothing major. I didn’t want to leave! So now the countdown begins for moving day.

I am SO GLAD we are done with this part! Now it’s all on the mortgage folks.

Survey Says…

We got the house!

Our Realtor called us last night to say congrats! I can’t believe it! I mean, I’m excited but not SUPER excited, I think I’ll reserve that for the inspection on Sunday. If that goes well, then I will be peeing my pants. We close on December 14th!

The hubs’ whole family will pretty much be coming with to the inspection, but that’s cool – I want them to see the house. I wish my parents and family didn’t live so far away. I’d like them to be there too. But, can’t always get what you want.

So, now I will continue to try not to surf the internet and buy things for the house we don’t yet have in our possession. I hope everything goes well for the next two months!!!

Thanks for all the well wishes!!!

Ugh, I need to keep my mouth shut at work.

SO, I know they’re just being “interested” and are “supporting” me with this house process, but I’ve got about 5 people asking me “any word?” “hear anything?” and I clearly haven’t heard or I would have said something!

Then, a dude just said (and he prefaced it with a “I know it’s none of my business, but…”) “You do know your utilities are going to go up, along with water bills and whatnot, right?”

Thanks, Dad.

I mean, seriously. We’ve been house hunting since last July, I think I’ve gone over the numbers a couple times. We’re gonna be broke. I know. Maybe someday I’ll get a promotion or a raise or something. But in the meantime, the hubs and I will be more than happy spending all of our time in our new home, wherever that may be. There’s a reason we pre-ordered Guitar Hero III for our Wii. We will be surrounding ourselves with the internet and video games, like all perfect newlyweds do.


I mean, we’ll spend our time in our new home staring lovingly in each other’s eyes, dreaming of babies and kittens and love. (I can’t even TYPE that without laughing!)

Someone stop me.

Still no word.

And I just bought this for a house I don’t even know is mine yet.

My good friends Rachael and Janna bought me a smaller version which I LOVE. But the prospect of having a home to put a full size one in was too much, and ebay got me.

The phone needs to ring soon…or I might go mad and start buying furniture.
