The Second Hurdle

Yesterday was the second hurdle in this house buying process. First, put an offer on a house. Second, you get that house inspected.

Today I am terribly emotional though. I know your first thought is that the inspection went terribly bad. Actually it was quite the opposite. The house is 40 years old so obviously it wasn’t perfect. The inspector pointed out a few things here and there. A lot of which he said wouldn’t need to be done for a few years. Yes! Nothing needs to be done right away. That’s a relief. It costs a lot of money to buy a house you know. But there was nothing major. Thank goodness!

So what’s wrong with me? Why am I emotional?

I’m nervous. I’m scared. I don’t want to make a mistake. This is a big deal. This is a huge commitment. I’m not the biggest on commitments. Hell, I’ve never even been in a committed relationship. Never! In a way this house will be my first in more ways than one.

And there is absolutely no way for me to know undoubtedly that this is the right decision. I know, you’re probably wondering why I didn’t make sure this was the house prior to putting an offer on it. I did. At least I thought I did.

This house has pretty much everything I have been looking for in a house. I got everything I asked for when putting an offer on it. The inspection went great. So far the process has been very smooth. I really couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Maybe that’s the sign that I’m looking for. It’s not like I have hit a wall at every turn. I’m not having to fight for anything. Maybe that means that this house was meant for me. The first people’s financing fell through. They weren’t the right people. I am. This house wanted me. Well that might be taking it a little too far. But I think you see where I’m going. lol

I’m sure that I will get excited again. But today I’m not. I guess that’s what I want to share with you all. As happy and exciting as an experience this is, there will be ups and downs. There will be moments where you doubt yourself. But those times and those moments will pass. I’m sure of this. Today, right now, I’m scared. But tomorrow I will probably be excited again. Especially since I really need to get the new carpet lined up. Who wouldn’t think looking at new carpet was exciting?!
