house

it's going to happen for real!

I told the leasing office this morning that I'll be leaving when my current lease expires at the end of July and I told the realtor that I'm ready to commit to buying the house. Now I just need to get the mortgage side of things settled. I emailed one guy Sunday night and haven't heard back yet. I called him today and they said he was not at the office today. I talked to another mortgage guy this morning and it looks like there's another good offer there. My goal is to have the mortgage part all tied up by the end of the day tomorrow!

Now I just have to hope I can actually close on the house by the end of my lease!

I've got a bunch of printer and monitor boxes by my office door so I'll be taking them home with me tonight and will start packing things up by the end of the week. I hope I'll be able to move straight into the house, but I'll put things in storage if I have to and will find someone to stay with until I can move in. The realtor, though, said she thought we might actually be able to close within two weeks. I'm just hoping for 30 days!
