(Thursday) We had 3 showings today. Hey at least we are having showings now! We got an offer on the house too!

(Friday) We are accepting the offer and contemplated for a long time when our close date should be. They asked for August 26th. Should we do an early close date like we were previously set on (August 14th) so that we don’t have to make another mortgage payment. Or should we see if we can push it out another week or so, so we can be in our own space longer but still be out before we need to pay more to the building. (And before my birthday :)) Ultimately we decided that paying one more month was worth the ‘hassle’ of trying to stay somewhere else living out of a suitcase. If it was just us then it would be so fine but the boys are already missing their stuff packed up in storage. Jaidan especially! We went to storage 3 days in a row so he could change out cars and then we got smart and just brought all the cars back with us. So our new close date is Sept 4th! I’m praying everything goes smoothly with this one because if they back out, we are getting closer and closer to our pay-date for the building. I’m thinking the week of Sept 15th is when they will be ready to start our building. It kind of seems like a long ways away but we have a lot to do before then!

(Sunday) We had 2 more showings today. I’m SOOO ready for them to sign so we can quit with the showings already. We think we are changing the kitchen in our floor plan. I have no idea how I am going to want my small kitchen. I keep pinning things on pinterest but everything looks good on pinterest. Since it’s going to be a small house I think I want it open (obviously) but part of me wants it separate too. So the only thing I can think is to have a U shaped with the island/bar thing open. This changes where the windows will go too and the windows are something you cannot change once you are inside so we really need to narrow this down! Back to pinterest I guess.
