At 11:30 this morning I should be getting writer’s cramp! We are FINALLY set to close. We will be in the house as soon as we have the keys starting to get things moving along. I can’t wait to share before and after pics during my June housewarming party with you! In the meantime, please wish us luck today!
So… we didn’t close on Friday There was missing paperwork all around, none of which was an end-all to buying the house, it just all has to be in for FHA to release funds. So far we are tentatively planned for this coming Friday to close. I know they were having a little issue planning it as the seller’s attorney is supposed to be out of town on Friday. They were trying to find another attorney or paralegal to step in just for the closing. Let’s hope it happens! We’re ready to get those keys and start work! I have review items starting to roll in for the Housewarming blog party and it’s more stuff to move! I want to have it sent directly to the house! I’m ready to move in!
Wish us luck that we close this week. We seem to need it!
I also wanted to say… I know a lot of you come around for my recipes and couponing scores. I promise I will get back into the swing of things after this move. I love to cook with the kids and share with you. Expect some healthier, kid friendly recipes coming soon!!
How About a Recipe?
I was talking to Charlie last night and told him I just feel like it’s not the right time for me to go to Camp Blogaway. I didn’t get the sponsorships I was looking for and with buying a house I just don’t have the money or time to make it work. I told him I really couldn’t make that final decision, though, to go cancel my ticket. He asked me when it was. I said “I don’t know, sometime in June.” He asked, “When in June; the weekend we move?” I said, “I don’t know, let me look it up… Whoops!! It’s the same weekend as our closing in May!” Well there you go, someone was telling me it’s really NOT the right time for me to go. I wouldn’t be able to go to my closing and make it to California in time. Besides, it’s our FIRST house! I’ll want to be spending that weekend there, working on it, cleaning it (NOT!) and making it our own! I am sad to miss this opportunity but I know that another perfect blogging conference will come along for me.
