Mi Casa

Today was so busy, I swear. I had a post started here that I didn’t even get a chance to save or anything – it just sort of went away at some point during the day when I was probably busy opening a million windows. Work is going well, though, so I’m not complaining. It’s just incredibly busy – some days more so than others.

A house went up for sale around the corner from us this week and it sort of pushed us into contacting our mortgage broker and real estate agent to get that process started again. We’re going to be moving in June, I guess, since our lease here is up June 30th. It’s hard to know how to time it just right so that we find the house we want not too soon and not too late to fit our window. I’m nervous about the timing of it all. Well, actually I’m nervous about ALL of it. It’s amazing that people buy houses in their early 20′s! That just would have never been possible for us. I’ve got a lot of shame about not being a homeowner until age 36, but it is what it is and my life happened the way it happened. Not much I can do about it!

Be prepared for the onslaught of house pictures that I’m sure will be forthcoming. “This is THE house!”, “No, THIS is it.”, “Forget those last two – THIS is the one!” Ha! Rob is guaranteed to be 25% grayer by July 1st. :-)

    Don’t be embarassed… I was 35–almost 36 when I became a homeowner. Enjoy yourselves and take your time. Looking at houses can be fun… especially when the realtor has a fabulous sense of humor and can keep you in stitches throughout the entire process. My realtor had a field day when we looked at a house that had SHAG carpet in the kitchen. Olive Green–with Gold highlights.

    I loved the house shopping part…and they only reason I was a homeowner by the time I was 19 was because buying was cheaper than renting. Our first place cost only $50K…can you imagine?
