Hmmm...These pictures just won't go where I want them to. It's just a few random pictures of the house, the sideways picture is of deer enjoying our yard. And the one on of the front of the house is showing off the front door being red now and not the awful yellow!!

Tomorrow, Tomorrow....

We close on the house tomorrow morning! We have waited for so long, since we made the decision to buy the 'other' house this has been our plan. We are nervous, excited, happy, scared, and a host of other things. We have been staying with my parents for 7 long weeks and I can't thank them enough for letting us stay here an completely disrupt their household and their sanity. But we are more than ready to move on! It has been a test of patience and tongue biting on so many levels and we are all just ready to have our own space again.

I can't wait to start making our new house a home!

We should hear the results of the water test for the house tomorrow late afternoon. The well needed to be shocked and we are praying that it worked. The house has been vacant for over a year so the water not passing wasn't a surprise, we just hope that a shock was all that it needed.

After we hear the results from that and have a 100% go for closing on Thursday I get to start calling companies and setting up utilities, deliveries and getting the hot tub guy to come out and get us up and running! I'm SO looking forward to soaking in it after moving and unpacking! I need to make a decision on what washer and dryer to buy, I just can't decide. I know that I want the most energy efficient one I can find. It's going to cost more up front but will be worth it in the long run since 6 people make a TON of laundry!

Home Sweet Home??

Our loan has gotten funding back, sorta kinda, it's not definite but we have hope now. We have a mortgage commitment date of this Friday and still no news on our mortgage since they are so backed up from loans that were supposed to close in late October. I'm freaking out. Just a little. Ok, a lot. We have a Settlement goal of Nov 11. Which would mean that we only have 8 more days before we are home owners again and not squatters.

There are more than a few people talking "trash" about us and it bothered me at first, but not any more. As I've said many times before, Jealousy is a nasty, nasty thing...
