So I haven't been as active in spark as usual, but I'm still getting my 5 a day in and doing what I can. I think overall things are going well.
I'm trying to buy a house. It is so much to look at and think about. I wanted to stay at the bottom of the price range, but to really get what I need, I think I'm going to have to go to the middle or higher end of the price range. It's kind of frustrating, but I have a friend that wants to rent a room so if that works out the extra money I would be spending on the loan would balance out in the end, but then i have less to put down on the property. I am hoping that what everyone tells me is true that when you walk into a house you know. I mean right now it's so much to think about cost, utilities, commute time, school districts (I don't have children, but I know it affects resale value), and the list goes on. It caused a little stress eating, but I've been back on track I had a couple days where I could have done much better, but overall I'm doing better and I'm not beating myself up too much about a couple bad days. Even if I gained a little back, one week of my journey is a small thing. I just hope I find the right house. I'm staying in my price range. As tempting as it is to go beyond it. I think it's best to just keep it affordable for now, this isn't my forever home, it's a starter home because my mortgage is less than rent for most of the apartments in the area. I am a little concerned about my job, but I think we'll be okay. I was more worried awhile ago than I am now.
Anyways that's my story. Not very exciting, but I go look at more houses this weekend and hopefully the right place and I find one another.
