I don’t have much to report, but have to share my excitement – we are set to close on the house in just one week!! We’ve passed the inspection and appraisal hurdles. Dave has jumped through the multitude of never-ending financial paperwork hoops, basically signing away his first-born child. But at this point, there finally appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
It really can’t come soon enough, as last night I was seriously missing my old Capitol Hill neighborhood and the many nearby friends that were always ready to grab a last minute beer or stop by for a glass of wine.
Let’s just hope that light is not a train…
Since the last post I’ve continued my Pinterest addiction, but we also met with contractors to get estimates on the work we want to do, as well as the work we need to do per the inspection report. The numbers have been digestible so far, and I am hopeful that we’ll be able to complete it all before we move in the first weekend of November. (Of course, that being said, I probably just jinxed us .) This week I also set up our utilities, which was oddly the one step that has made the house seem most like a reality.
As exciting as it is, it’s all a little overwhelming. There is so much to do and I must be forgetting something. A while back, I found this helpful checklist for changing your address and definitely plan to use it as a way to organize my to-dos.
