We got word a while back the townhouse we are renting has been foreclosed on. Meaning? We have to move. The timing isn't bad, though. We are looking to buy our first house. We've had some help; we know an out of state real estate agent who pointed us in a direction to find someone here. Today, I spoke with said person and she has put me in contact with a mortgage broker in our city that is connected with her agency. We will probably also talk to our bank who we have been with FOREVER and seems to have ridden out this financial fiasco and has a good reputation with mortgages.
Am I nervous? Yep. Scared? You bet! Excited? Yes, when I'm not nervous or scared.
More immediately, I'm bummed. I. HATE. MOVING! I. HATE. PACKING! OMG! I don't know if I can express to you how much I hate those things. I wish I were one of those people who could go on vacation and come back to your house all moved. *sigh*
We have a local storage unit, so I am going to start moving stuff over there I think next week. It's a little tough trying to decide what you use and don't. I have an idea of a plan but am leaving my options open...so to speak.
In other news...
River of Death was good. We only had one scary incident. My advice to you, always wear your life vest. Period.
The kittens are evil. They have taken to waking up at 4 or 5 AM to play. When does the kitten thing end? Sheesh! Ok, As I sit here typing this, they are asleep and cute next to me, but Six sleeps with here eyes open...is that weird? Seems weird to me. And she's DREAMING! So she has the REM thing happening so it looks like she's looking around...so bizarre.
Any way, if you don't mind, I think I'll blog about my house hunting experiences with y'all.
See ya later!
