T-minus 45 minutes to go!

January 20th, 2015 at 03:23 pm

Oh my, in just about 45 minutes I am signing for a house. My first ever. I haven’t gotten excited about this yet because I am overwhelmed (a little) with the amount of things I have to do before I move into the house.

The list is a mile long and tonight I may type it up so that I can have it easy access someplace. It will keep me accountable on what I have to do and what money I spend.

My family is going to dinner at Red Robin to celebrate. I told this this is the last of my spending for a while let’s go someplace nice, haha! Then I remembered I have a gift card for there so…dinner is covered.

After dinner I am going to look at a console table someone posted on a local FB page. It was originally $400+ and they are selling it for $75. It look nice, only a year or so old and they would move it for me Saturday to the new house. It will sit in the window area of the living room with a lamp on it. I use timers in my current apartment for lights to make it look like I am home because I am so often house sitting.

My agent sent me a note that I was smart to stand my ground with them completing items off the pest report because more things were found once they took off the decorative finial. Nothing major, but it was another $700 to repair that the sellers were responsible for, not me! And I spoke with the company today who completed the work, there is a guarantee on the work and he said no other problems were found. And he sent me the before and after pictures for my records and the list of completed work. Nice guy.

I can’t believe how fast it has come together.
