As many of you know, Wanda and I are moving out of Chicago and moving up to Wisconsin to take on new jobs. We were up there at the beginning of the week looking for a house to rent. After seeing prices to purchase, we decided that we would look into the option of purchasing. Well Wanda went up on Thursday to house hunt, and totally fell in love with a little place up there. I stuck around here doing the whole pre-approval mortgage thing. On Friday, Wanda took me back up there to view the property, we liked it so much, and everything fell into place with the mortgage broker, so we put a bid out on it. By the time we got home (2 1/2 hour drive) our real estate agent had called saying that the owner had 2 offers to consider, but seemed to be leaning towards ours. We find out on Saturday if our bid has been accepted. This will be our first house, and though I am very excited about the possibility of getting it, I have been nauseous since we signed the papers! I mean, A HOUSE, man I really am growing up. That is scary!!! Now, if the mortgage goes smoothly, and the movers go smoothly and the transition to our new jobs goes smoothly, etc. By the time May 15th rolls around, if I haven't given myself a heart attack or an ulcer, we will be doing great!!
