3 pay months

Posted on February 18, 2007. Filed under: Uncategorized |

March and September are the months with 3 pay days instead of two.

That’s reassuring.

is this the longest day to anyone else

After getting up at 6:00, with the condo on my mind, I felt a bit better when Brian and I went to look at it again (just the outside) and to look closer at the area (I really like it all and really want it). I’ve now realized that I’ll be going back to poorer than the student life I led (but that’s okay) and I had a minor breakdown when the 2 restaurants in town that I can eat at were both closed and I ran over a curb. I broke.

But only for about 30 seconds and I felt afterwards as if all the stress, tiredness, and excitement had released through my eyes and I was calm again.

Then the agent (mine) called and he has spoken with the other agent and she has shown the unit to a lot of people, but no offers yet. I’m not meeting with my agent until tomorrow so, of course, it will be too late (because I have no luck whatsoever).

So, fingers crossed and I guess if it isn’t meant to be, it isn’t meant to be.

so stressed, but excited, but want it to be done

Okay — this condo thing is happening a bit fast, and I’m good with it, but now I just want it to be done. I want the offer to go and for it to be accepted and to just have it and start my “grown up” life.

I woke up at 6:00 this morning (not cool for a Sunday) and couldn’t get back to sleep because I kept thinking about it. About every detail from, what if someone else buys it today and I don’t get it to where I want to put my furniture (not that I can put much in there) to the resale value to people being able to break in or not to the money.

No wonder my stomach is clenched! It’ll be better once I meet with my real estate agent tomorrow.

oh my god, oh my god, oh my god…

So, I went to look at the condo today with my parents….and, well, I’m putting an offer in on Monday!

What the hell!?!?!

I’m excited, but nervous and have this pit in my stomach — for no real reason other than wondering if this is the right decision. I mean I’ve been thinking and planning this for a couple of years and have been looking online for a couple of months, but this is the first (and only) place I’ve looked at. Well, okay, we looked at 1 other unit.

But, the thing is, I’ve always been a value for your dollar kind of shopper — often buying the most expensive thing if it will work the longest, but always, ALWAYS logical. And, this is the most logical place and I can’t afford any of the others that are listed, so I figure, why bother looking at them.

I’ll let you know how the offering goes — and, now that the idea of being on my own again is so close, I’m actually a bit sad at the thought of moving out. I know it’s not too far from home (and I’ve NEVER been the homesick, not wanting to leave home kind), but this is it. This is the not turning back, actually buying a condo as a “starter” home, going to be a grown up kind of purchase.

What the hell!? (I must reiterate).

Well, I won’t hold my breath just yet — in case it doesn’t go through (did I mention the closing would be as early as in 2 weeks!?). I think I just wasn’t prepared for this to all happen so quickly.

I feel excited, but nauseated and have a wicked headache and my shoulders haven’t relaxed all day.

Deep breaths.
