It's a Done Deal!

Yes, that does mean that WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! We are 95% sure that everything will go off without a hitch. We put an offer in and it was countered, then we countered, and it was accepted!!! We own a place! There are a few "restrictions" with our financing, so we have to jump through some hoops first before we're 100% sure that it's going through, but so far, so good and it looks like we'll be closing on 10/27/2008! I can't wait!!!!! We are SO EXCITED!!!!

Are we done yet?

So... still looking. Or rather, we've only actually been looking since Monday.... okay, so that's two days. Wow, I am really impatient. I just want a home!!! Is that so much to ask? We found a place we like, a real fixer-upper (just what I was looking for!). The location is good, the street it's on is not... it's half commercial, so we're pretty worried about resale. Anyways, we'll see. I'm going to look at it again tonight. But I've also got two others to check out. I just hate this part. I know, most people think it's fun, I'm weird like that. I just want to get to the real fun stuff- like painting and demolition and installing new kitchen cabinets and countertops... you know, the fun stuff!

Exciting and yet not....

So kids... I'm not sure who has heard and who hasn't, but we are on the hunt for a home! We are still in the "waiting to hear from our mortgage lender" phase and it is... well, really boring and trying my patience! We'd like to start looking as soon as possible, but we have no idea what we'll get approved for, so we don't even know our price range! I'm supposed to get a call today, so I am kind of on the edge of my seat waiting for the phone to ring! We are also selling the Tahoe, which is exciting, the gas hog! So that's me... waiting and waiting.

On a side note, Ben's parents have been absolutely wonderful and accomadating to us in our time of home-less-ness and I couldn't ask for better in-laws!

Monday is Brook's birthday, so I'll be posting pictures! I can't believe she's almost one!

I am Elaine

My buddy Kelly took this test and, as I love Seinfeld, I just had to do it! I feel satisfied with the results.... I couldn't have handled if I'd turned out to be George!
