Good News

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was thinking about buying a house for the first time.  Well, I'm not thinking about it any more, I'm doing it.  We found a house we like and have been negotiating with the bank (it's a foreclosure).  They finally accepted our offer, so we are ready to go!  We are very excited about the new potential purchase.  The new house is in a different town, 11 miles from where we live now.  It will still be nicely centrally located for my job.  The only downside is that Trevor will have to change schools, but he's only in preschool so it shouldn't be too traumatic.

I also finally got an email issue resolved that has been plaguing me for weeks now.

Welcome to the band of home owners. We are a happy lot now that we have found the home of our dreams.

The little challenges that pop up from time-to-time are nothing.

I always enjoyed helping first time home buyers find that one special place they could call their own. It is a wonderful feeling when everything fall into place.

Thanks for sharing your excitement. I know you will have lots of fun there.

As for Trevor, he will get used to it. My dad and step-dad were in the Army, so we got to move around quite a bit. We learned to adapt. I even had to change schools in the middle of my senior year. There is a story that goes with that. Perhaps I should post it.

Enjoy your new home. Post photos before and after. I know you will be making some changes.

Yea!! What an exciting time in your lives. Congratulations! Don't worry about Trevor having to change schools, better to do that now when he's so young. It's tough changing schools when they get older. I had to do it too many times. Can't wait to see your new house!
