we have been approved for a mortgage!! Yay!! and just on Bryan's salary alone. this is pretty impressive to me! although I knew he was a good provider for our family... it is hard to get approved for a mortgage, especially for the cost of homes around here. NY is getting ridiculous to buy a home in.... well not necessarily getting... it has been... and it seems to be getting worse.
that being said... I think we are going to try to purchase a home here in great ole' NY. yay. that i'm not the happiest about, but not that I hate it. I've lived here all my life... so this is what I know. this is where I'm comfortable and my family and friends are... so this will work. we have weighed the options of moving away to another state... about 9 hrs away to be exact... but we just can't do it right now. it just seems to stress us out way too much. this move alone will stress us out plenty but at least we will be surrounded by friends and family that will support us and help us in any way they can. :)
i'm anxious but not trying at all to get my hopes up, or to look to the future too much. just stay in the present and see what happens with that.
we are going to go preview the inside of the house in person on Thursday sometime, that is when our real estate agent is back from vacation, then we can take it from there. baby steps... as Jenn says. :)
speaking of Jenn... you have to go to my BUTTON for her over there on the right side of the screen, it has a globe, saying My Kids are My World... click it and read what she posted for today... it is perfect. :)
I might post it later on today or at some point... but you should definitely go read it over there on her blog.
i'll try to be back with some updates as we figure things out and work through this real estate thing...
