I found another house!

*gasp* groan

Maybe I'm jinxing it by writing about it on my blog, but I hope not. If all this goes smoothly, I'll be in a new house, my own house, my own home on April 13th. Whoa.

So here's the process thus far...

Monday: found it, freaked out, submitted offer, they countered, we countered...
Tuesday: the accepted but refused to pay $300 for insurance, my agent (love him!) went to bat for me and told them they were ridiculous, that i am a new homeowner, that this is customary, that they paid 49 for the home-remodled it and are now making 40 off it...
Wednesday: they put tail between legs, stopped looking at numbers and maybe saw me as a person and accepted final offer...
Thursday: inspection (this is where things got screwed up on the last house - draw in a deep breath), Roy told me this one was better than the last one, we talked about issues that really needed to be fixed, I emailed that to my agent to re-submit to seller...
Friday...

I wait to hear from them. Will they fix the appropriate needs of house before selling? Will they shut me down and again I'm back at square one?

I guess only time will tell. Stay posted...

when you get all settled into your new house, I need to come visit you. we can sit and drink margaritas and watch The Money Pit together. I love skinny Tom Hanks.
