Buying a house & LIFE!!

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

Well, hello there Spark Friends!

It's been a week since my last blog post, which is unusual since I posted almost every day in the month of January. However, life got buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuusy!!!

Back in December we found a house that we absolutely adored, but it was at the top of our price range and we didn't want to push the budget. So, we counter offered back and forth a few times until we decided to walk. About 2 weeks later, they dropped the price a little and called us to see some things they had "fixed" on the house, so we looked at it, waited 2 more weeks, and then offered again. We finally came to an agreement & so we will be closing on our house in the middle of March. YAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!! We are so excited to buy our first house!

So, between all that house purchasing entails and also switching back from night shift to day shift, I haven't had much time for SP. I've been trying to track my food and exercise, but even that has been a challenge. I haven't weighed in since about a week ago. I guess I need to do that soon, lol. I've been watching what I'm eating & exercising on schedule. I skipped ST yesterday which was bad, but I've had a massive headache for the past 2 days and just haven't felt up to it. Grr.

For anyone who is buying a house right now, SHOP AROUND with your mortgage rates, title company, lender, etc. We've already saved over $1500 in closing costs just by shopping around! They need your business, so they will do whatever they can!

All for now! tata!
