Well…we’re homebuyers!

I was all worried that the sellers would back out if they had to make repairs or refuse to make them or try to up the price in exchange for making them but I was totally wrong. They signed our request for remedy w/out any changes so it is official we are officially buying a house! I am super excited and now it’s all paperwork … some to the lender, some to the realtor, and some just stuff like insurance that has to be done. I didn’t really think it would happen for us! Yay!

And I’m finding that my friends were friends and they are letting the past be in the past so….again, I’m afraid to say it but life is good!


It’s been awhile…

It’s been awhile since I updated. A lot has happened.

First, we are trying to buy a house. We found a great house, 1667 sq. ft, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, four level split really near by in our price range. We made an offer, they countered, we accepted. The inspection was yesterday. But, there is a major electrical problem. Apparently the breaker box was done by a 2 year old and is a safety hazard. As is the fact that they did not ground the a/c unit. Go figure. So…we’ve got to negotiate something with that. And I don’t know what to do. I’m really afraid that they are going to say so what? And then we have to walk away b/c this is an expensive venture. I want them to say OK we’ll fix it. But I don’t know if they will or not. I’m nervous.

I guess that is really all that has happened. I’m trying to be more brave about talking to people from my past. I’m afraid they will stone me. I don’t want that. Things happened, and I guess if you can’t move on from the past then you weren’t supposed to be my friend anyway, but I miss my friends and I give them more credit than that. High School was High School and College was College. Moving on. I hope.

We had a lot of bad storms that past couple of days and even into this morning but the sun is shining and I’m going to take the dog for a walk. Things will get better.
