oh my god we have a house

well after a very depressing weekend of tears and sadness my realtor some how got the bank to agree to our terms. as of sat the bank wanted more for the house and to cut our sellers assist in half. we said flat out no way. this is the only way we can afford the house and it is take it or we walk away. the realtor called me around noon to say they agreed and we have a house. i am still crying mind you but now it is tears of joy. so the count down is on 18 days to go !!!!!

moving right along

well everything we need to do for settlement is being done. appraisal is in the works and title work is being done the only thing we still have to do is the home inspection. i am finally getting excited 22 days to go. it is scary and oh so exciting at the same time. i can't wait to move in. it will be raining this weekend in these parts so the packing will begin. now as long as doggie daycare on friday tires out my dog for the weekend i will be able to really start moving with packing.

not much going on

so far no news anywhere about the house. we are still set for settlement so we are hoping to start packing soon. winnie has been mostly good lately the occational shoe napping or general over barking but she has been fairly well behaved. sat i took her for a nice long walk and she was exhausted for hours afterward. not much else is going on. flo is due this weekend and we didn't get much baby making in this month so i will be suprised if i am pregnant. oh well we will try again next time.

we set a settlement date

i am so excited 1 month from today i should be at settlement and moving into my new house. i can't wait this has been the longest most frustrating process but we are finally moving. yeah!!!! i feel like i have been on a crazy rollercoaster with this process a very slow start with some unexpected turns then up a steep hill and i think we may finally be cresting the top and ready for the big fast run to the finish. hopefully nothing else will throw us off and we will finally be able to move.

9/11/08 43 years and counting

while the world is remembering the tragedy of the world trade center my family is marking 2 other occations today. first today is my parents 43rd wedding anniversary and it is also my cousins birthday. these 2 events came way before 9/11/01 and for us mean so much more. while 9/11 is now a day where everyone stops to remember what happened, most people who know my parents also now seem to have an easier time remembering their anniversary.i am sure things are the same for my cousin. no one will ever forget 9/11 and they seem to remember that friends happy days are marked by this event as well. i am more impressed that they have been married as along as they have and are still happily married. so happy birthday david and happy anniversary mom and dad love you all

things here have been out of control. last week was pms sorry no baby we will try again this month. to make my life even more emotional we had to make a last minute change and go with another mortgage company. we now have an even better deal and are not going to have to back out of the house deal. we also got to go through the house again. so while we are still waiting for bank approval we are at least ready to go. i know i am giving the bare minimum of details but last week was too emotional to go into fully.
on a better note i did get to spend friday night with my dad's 2 brothers and 2 of my cousin's that i have not seen in years. i wish they were in town for a better reason but i was glad i got to see them and their kids. my brother and nephew also went to see everyone. b loved meeting his 2nd cousins and playing in my uncle's pool with them. it is rare we all get together and since i haven't seen one of my cousins in 5 years and the other for at least 12 it was a real treat for me. after much laughing and catching up i finally got home around 10:30 pm.

more house

and other stuff. as of right now i don't have any clue when we are making settlement. so i am freaking out. we can't put notice in for our apt until we get bank approval and they haven't even assigned anyone to the case. as an added bonus the seller now has a lawyer. making my freak out worse is the fact that i am either pmsing or pregnant. no i have not taken a test yet since i am not late yet. frustrating not being sure when you will get your period every moth makes getting pregnant a bit harder. also makes taking a test unreliable until i am really late. when is late around 35 days, where am i you ask day 25. my normal range is 22 to 26 days. i am so tempted to test anyway. should i??????
