It seems like it took forever, but we finally are in our new condo and paying a mortgage instead of rent! Thanks to Mommy for coming and helping with lots of unpacking! We love it and will be posting new pictures of it (with our stuff instead of the old pictures on the seller's blog). Although we're not terribly fond of HOA's, the one we're in is pretty good, we have a pool, playground, workout room, the grounds and buildings are maintained regularly--in fact even though our buildings are a few years old than the condo-complex right next to us, ours looks significantly newer because the HOA is on top of keeping things up. Charlie has gotten a little territorial of the condo, but with the advice of the lady on "It's Me or the Dog" we're working on some behavior modification to stop him from barking when people come to the door and waiting a few feet from the door while we open it so he doesn't charge at visitors to try and smell them. Anyway, I should get back from my lunch, I'll post more later.
So, of course the closing date moved again, but this time we have a scheduled time, so that's good (it shouldn't move again). We close on Monday the 21. It seems like there's tons going, on but nothing new...
So, FHA loans are a pain in the rear, but we finally have everything in and should (we hope and pray) close on Friday the 18th. My mom is coming up on Monday to help us unpack--especially since Matt started a new job today and will be working a full 40 hours/week, which he hasn't done in a while since College Works has such a unique schedule....We'll also be buying the "bubble" the mini van that started with Nani and Grandpa. That way I don't have to hitch-hike to work.....OK, so I don't have to take the bus. Anyway, I should probably get back from my lunch brake now, but I'm sure I'll have more to write later.
I am the mom of 5 year-old and an almost 2 year-old. I teach decorating/baking classes (LiveLoveBakeNM.com) so I get to have them with me pretty much all the time :) I'm working on improving myself everyday.
