I'm honestly too tired to be super-excited about the house thing right now, but but all the happiness in my journal? Now that's exciting. Really, I'm very touched. ^_^
I wish I had the energy right now to answer each and every one. But I'm just going to babble here for a couple minutes and call it a night, lest I be left with no energy tomorrow, too.
The seller is such a nice lady. She reminds me a little of xso's mom. One of her cats sat on my lap and her dog vied for attention while I signed the paperwork. She took out warrantee insurance for the major things in the house (like plumbing, electrical, furnace, etc.)-- it helps cover her butt from a lawsuit if something goes terribly wrong after I've lived there a bit, and makes my life a lot easier, too. The roof and the fireplace insert are still under warrantee, and she kept all the other warrantees too (like for the range and the refrigerator, etc.).
Her husband was upstairs playing computer games during the whole process. ;)
The garden has a lot more going on than I'd realized-- there are roses and irises and hyacinth and dogwood and lots more. Oh, and there's a cat door in a basement window for Max (if I choose to keep it).
I was looking at the dining room, once again amazed at how much BIGGER the place really is in comparison to my memories of it, when she said something in passing about how it's such a big house for just her, her husband, their three cats and their dog. Oy!
I feel vaguely good about this, but not extraordinarly happy. It just hasn't sunk in yet.
I have to find an attorney tomorrow so that I might get this contract approved by 06/04.
I have to contact banks so that I might get a mortgage by 06/06.
I have to find an inspector so that I might get it inspected by 06/07.
And I have a full day of work tomorrow, and rehearsal tomorrow night.
Ldy needs sleep, badly.
