One Step Closer

Robert ventured out into the icy streets today to be at the house for the inspection.  When he got there, the inspector was busy, busy inspecting the house.  I called him about 45 minutes after he got there and found out that the house is in great condition.  The plumbing, electrical, structure, everything looks great.  There are a few little things, but nothing big at all.  In fact, Robert and the inspector were surprised at the condition for the age of the house. 

The courier picked up the earnest money and we have paid the seller for the option period.  I have spent quite a bit of time today on the phone with an insurance agent getting insurance quotes for homeowners insurance and a combo of homeowners/auto insurance.  I can't believe this is happening!  I never would have imagined that we would find the house that we did and that everything would be going along as it has been. 

I have spent the last couple of hours looking at our budget... for this month, for next month, and what it will look like after that.  It'll be tight, but we'll be fine... completely fine.  It's crazy.  And next fall will be even nicer because childcare won't be as high.  Can't wait! :)

Alright... I've been wasting time long enough.  Time to get busy working on lessons!
