Moving Day

Tomorrow is our moving day. The truck is pulling up to our door between 8:30 and 9:30 in the morning.

This is what our house has looked like for the past month. I can’t wait to be moved into our house and unpacked!!

We’ve had some issues with our closing date this week. The mortgage company can’t finalize our loan because the hospital won’t confirm that they have hired me. I have to pass my drug test before they will do that. So, I’m getting up early in the morning to drive to Atlanta so I can pee in a cup. What a pain! We were planning for us both to drive down at the same time and closing on our house this week. Since we can’t close until the results are back it’s cosing us another $600 to the moving company so they can store our stuff until we close sometime next week. So much for having a few days to unpack and to get settled before I start work on the 11th.

I’m just trying to not let myself get too stressed about it. I just keep telling myself that at least we got the house and we aren’t having to look for somewhere to live still. I just hate that $600 is going down the toilet over just a little bit of pee in a cup.

In the bottom right corner is my old trundle bed that I slept in growing up.  My mom and grandparents made a trip over this week so we could have it before the moving truck came.  It needs cleaned up, painted, and new mattresses eventually, but I’m glad to have it.

Hopefully my next post will be from our new house!

Our new house

We finally got a yes from the bank about our house around 9:30 last night.  I was sure we weren’t going to hear from them until today, but apparently the VA works late!  We’re hoping to get a closing date today.

So, here are some pictures of our first house!!  We’re almost done packing and I can’t wait to get down there and get these boxes unpacked!  This messy place is starting to drive me CRAZY.

Here’s Brian in front of the house.

I’ll post more once we’re moved in.  Who wants to come help paint?

Send ’em packin’

Boxes, screw drivers, spackle, packing tape, sharpies, newspaper, bubble wrap…..that’s my life right now.  I spent the day interviewing moving companies and getting quotes.  We’ve placed a new offer on our house after their counter offer….hopefully we will get an approval soon so we can get a closing date.  It’s hard to set a date for the movers to show up with a truck with out a closing date.

Sorry I haven’t been around much lately.   With so much work to do in the next two weeks I’ve been trying to stay away from pictures or blogging.  Hopefully I will be able to post some pics soon.

Buying a house is stressful!

Brian and I just got back from our 2nd trip to Atlanta.  We originally had three days to find a house, but because of flight issues we ended up with another day and a half.  We placed an offer on a house Thursday evening, so the bank probably didn’t get it until Friday morning.  It is a VA foreclosure and the realtor told us it can take anywhere from 24 hours to 2+ weeks to hear back from them.  Hopefully sooner rather than later since we only have less than 3 weeks before we need to move in!!!

We’re about 50% packed and are getting quotes from moving companies.

If you’re one of my friends on Facebook I have posted pictures of the house there.  If you’re friends or family that are not on Facebook send me an e-mail and I will e-mail you some pics if you want.  I’m going to wait to post pictures here until after we know if we got the house or not.

Please be praying for us while we wait.  We’re both really stressed knowing that we’ll be homeless in three weeks if our offer doesn’t go through on this house.  I know God is in control and has worked everything out perfectly with this move so far, I’m trying to keep the faith about the house too.
