Joey and I are officially on our way to accomplishing one of the major goals we've set for this year:
Buying a house.
(Technically we are on our way to achieving the other one--having a baby--if you count throwing hundreds of dollars a month into our RE's pocket. But whatever.)
This morning we were pre-approved for a loan and we may start looking for houses as early at this weekend. We are trying to get in a place by May or June to take advantage of the extended tax credit, which will hopefully be used for our baby's nursery/toy/clothing/college fund rather than more fertility treatments. Trying to stay positive here!
I'm really excited about buying a house. I've wanted a place to call our own for so long, and we are finally going to get that. We're looking for a townhouse: we want to start off small and be responsible for little maintenance. Most importantly, we want something that we can bring our future Baby S home to--whenever he or she graces us with his or her presence.
At this moment, I'm running out the door for my doctor's appointment, but there is something else I want to mention. I'll elaborate on this in another post, but I am thinking of disabling anonymous comments. I've received several comments in the last few weeks that were not so nice. I'm not going to call these people out. For now, I'll leave you with this: Please, try and remember the golden rule. Treat others how you want to be treated. Don't leave me a comment that you would be offended if I left it on your blog. Thanks. More to come . . .
