One More Day!

Well, there's just one day left until Ed and I close on our house! I can't believe it's finally here. This last month has seemed to drag by.  Today we have our final walk through and then we meet for the closing at noon tomorrow. 

Screw the royal wedding, we've got something better to celebrate on April 29th!

House Update

Things are going along on schedule with the house. The appraisal was completed and there was no problem there. Now we're just working on the last bit of paperwork needed by the mortgage company. Every has to be in by this coming Monday and then we close on Friday the 29th. I am so excited. We've been looking at paint colors and making all sorts of plans.  I'm really looking forward to getting out in the yard and planting a real garden this year!  More updates to follow...

We had our home inspection on Saturday.  The inspector was very prompt with the report and we received it yesterday.  Today we sent our list of fixes to the selling agent. Now we wait to see what the buyers have to say.  It seems like there are so many things we have to hurry and do or take care of, and then we just have to wait, and wait, and wait for a response.  Honestly, we haven't had to wait that long for most things, it just feels like it.  I constantly have a fear that something will go wrong and we will lose the house. Like right now, I'm worried that the sellers won't want to fix all the things we requested or go down enough in price for us to do the fixes.  Deep breaths...
