The seemingly impossible has occurred. Pat and I found another house that we like 10o times more than the last heartbreaker. We have signed a contract and we are waiting for a new closing date of June 10th!!!
The house is gorgeous and perfect, which unfortunately makes my anxiety of losing it just that much more extreme. So far, everything seems like it should be okay and my gut tells me that this house might actually be "the one" - although i guess i felt like that last time too -ha ha (...wait - Boo). We called to schedule a home inspection this weekend after doing a post-contract walk through and I couldn't help but feel sort of like an old pro at all of this. Not that that is neccessarily a good thing (becasue it sure sucked when the last house fell through) but, it is nice to feel like you have a good sense of how to make the best decision.
Walking through the house, I felt so lucky. Pat's dad reminded us that "some of your best decisions are made for you" and he was so right! We have honestly been looking for a house for close to a year and a half now and we easily could have ended up in the wrong place by getting impatient or compromising. You have to trust that everything (especially things far more important than buying/selling houses/moving) happens for a reason.....which hopefully i will not have to remind myself of too much just in case this house falls through during escrow and I once again find myself bitter and loathing house hunts :)
So that is the biggest news I have for now. Like I promised last time - maybe a house will mean much more interesting posts about fabric and bedding, and light fixtures!!! j/k - My blog will probably become more about my little niecephew (who is the size of a bell pepper this week and should be showing off his/her business in the next 2 weeks so that we all know whether he or she is a niece or a phew.......CAN'T WAIT!!!
The weekend was awesome and I should have some pictures up of that soon.
