The reason I've been such a slacker...

Yes, I know it's the middle of April and I barely posted anything at all in March, but there's a good reason for my neglect! Our time has been consumed by the fact that we decided it was time for us to buy a house! So we've been BUSY!! But we made an offer on a house we really liked, and the offer was accepted, and then we had the home inspected and discovered that the roof was going to have to be replaced, as well as a few other expenses we hadn't been planning on, so then we were in a quandary about whether it was even the right house for us, and spent a few more days looking at houses again, which was frustrating, and finally, after thinking and praying a lot, we decided to renegotiate and offer $4,000 less for the house, and if they didn't accept that then we would just walk away and find something else. So we just signed that amendment this afternoon, expecting that we would have to wait a few days to hear back from the bank, but even with the prospect of more waiting, we still felt relieved just knowing that either way our decision was made, and feeling that it was the right choice. But we were surprised to hear back within a couple of hours that our offer has been accepted, so now we are SO excited! So in a few weeks time, we will be the proud new owners of this beautiful house!!!



I am SO EXCITED!!

Oh it's LOVELY!!!! I love all the mature landscaping. That's one thing that our neighborhood lacks because it is so new. But someday it will look like that....
