Well, I was approved for the mortgage — no cosigner or anything… So now I just need the deal to go through and it’s done and done!

almost accepted…

I’ve resigned myself to the fact that if I don’t get it, I just don’t get it — it’s not like another one won’t come onto the market ever. I’m calm about the decision to put in an offer and am ready to see whether or not it will be accepted. I’m calm about the money and not being able to do too much without finding a way to earn at least $500-$1000 more a month and, short of winning the lottery, I don’t see that happening.
