Totally freaking out

No really, I am. I am trying not to think about the house stuff. Because when I do I start to feel major anxiety.

I accepted the counter offer on the house. Tomorrow I write a check for the escrow and next Tuesday is the home inspection. I don't know if it's safe to say I own a house until Keys are in hand. I'm trying to only think about it in small doses. Too much and my stomach starts to turn in knots. Am I really doing this. It also scares me that I'm actually tied down somewhere. Did I mention that I'm totally freaking out about this?

Road Trip

I should hear back on the house within the next 24 hours. Other than that nothing much is going on.
My dear friend Michelle, who lives in Portland, invited me come visit her.
My sister got married 9 months ago and moved up to Seattle.
I am thinking since I don't have anything going on that perhaps instead of flying to visit them that maybe a road trip is in order. I love to drive and it would be cool to explore places.

But, would that be weird doing it alone?

I'm obsessed

This morning I found out that the house I put an offer on just got an accepted offer. Wasn't meant to be. Instead of being bummed this girl went and view the new listings that I got sent over the weekend. I asked to go see one and an hour later I was looking at it. And I ended up putting an offer on it. It's been on the market for 2 days, so hopefully the status doesn't change before they open my offer... Let the wait begin.

Waiting Game

Yesterday my real estate agent put in an offer on a house. Now it's time to wait. The hard part will be trying not to obsess about it.

A lot has been happening

Probably the most exciting is that I still have my job and I'll still be in 1st grade. My friend that was next door was asked to go up to 2nd. I also have to change classrooms and I'll no longer have a door that leads to another classroom.
Another thing is that I that I got preapproved for a home loan and have started looking at houses. I think I'll stay out here in the middle of know where. Not because I love it. But it's close to my school. I'm kind of scared to buy but it's actually a lot cheaper to buy than to rent. Even with new fees (hoa and property tax). I'll save a few hundred bucks a month. Will see though. Because maybe I should wait one more year until I know I'll be permanate at the school.
That's a quick recap. :-)
