It Seems As If....

my life is revolving around a house purchase right now. All of a sudden we are making life decisions.

I sorta like just being "drifters", living in whatever home the military provides us when we move every few years. Thinking of settling down is scary for a girl who has never lived longer than 7 years in one place her entire life.

I have been on an emotional roller coaster..I really want this! Can we afford this? They'll never accept our offer! What if they DO accept our offer?!?! How much is a home inspection? What is PMI? If it's anything like PMS, get me outta here! And on and on.

Then...THEN!!! I'm driving around town and I see another house that I simply loved from the curb. Ugh. My stomach can't take this wild ride. I am going to look at this one today. I secretly hope it's awful. I just don't know what I would do if this is just as nice as the other one. My husband will slap his head in exasperation and ban me from calling my realtor to look at more houses. Even the kids are confused and exasperated at my lack of commitment to one house. All they want is their own rooms. :)

So..here we are..I am anxiously awaiting the phone call that will get me rolling toward the new showing. The kids have taken an extended lunch and I've let them linger too long. Time to get back on task and forget about houses for awhile. If that's even remotely possible.

I, on the other hand, cannot wait to settle down permanently. I'm so ready for it . . . and I really don't ask for much - basics have to be solid good (plumbing, electric, roof/siding, flooring etc). I can always change carpets and equipment.

Good luck! I'll bet your stomach feels funny! :)

"What is PMI? If it's anything like PMS, get me outta here!"Honestly, that's one of the funniest things I've ever heard. I really did laugh out loud - not just LOL. Ha ha ha!

I remember Dawn when we bought this house. When we first came to see it, I knew it was the one God had picked for us but I didn't like the look of it at first. It needed so much work. Now I am so happy here. We have renovated a lot and keep on making the house better and better.

Take it to God. Ask him which house is right for you. You will know when it comes to the crunch.
