I have never been the biggest country music fan … I like individual artists or songs over the genre generally. This version of a teenage memory really amazed me though.

Meaning that the site is back up and working after the last few weeks. Suffice it to say that when you pay your renewal fees and your hosting company doesn’t think you have, your blog goes down. Shame on me really for letting it go on so long, but I’ve been away for a while and honestly didn’t think it was a site-wide outage. A couple of frantic emails to my host later and VOILA! After a bunch of behind-the-scenes updating, I’m hoping that all is well in GirlGeekly Land.
On that note, your moment of zen for today …

So I got my property appraisal report back today and am now another step closer to becoming a bona-fide home owner. The appraisal value was fine and I can proceed with closing. Now it’s just a few final documents and then signing the closing papers! So to celebrate I’m going to post a couple of layout diagrams of my house:
So yesterday I stopped into my mortgage broker’s office after work and signed my life away, coming one step closer to finalizing the purchase of my new house in Everett. I have to say that it was a wonderful and fairly momentous experience for me, being the first time I’ve ever signed anything as significant as a mortgage. Next milestone to come is the appraisal.
So why have I been so affected by just signing some paperwork … and I mean a TON of paperwork? It’s not so much the weight of agreeing to all that debt (which is significant after all), but more the impact of knowing the money that goes towards it will be more than just an expense that disappears as soon as the month is over. Renting as I have done my entire adult life is such a very ephemeral thing in comparison to buying a home. You pay your rent and have a roof over your head, but it’s transient. Month to month you provide for your shelter but nothing ever comes of it, the very next month it could be gone.
A rental is never yours. Just try painting without your landlord’s approval and you’ll see. Realizing that with each mortgage payment that comes out of my bank I will become one small step closer to owning that roof; knowing that once I do own that shelter, no one can take it from over my head … momentous!
So fellow geeks & freaks … I am in the initial process of buying a home. I won’t bore you with all the gory details, but suffice it to say that I am very excited. I have my pre-approval, have streamlined my debt, and put in an offer on a bona-fide house for me and my meow-mews. It’s funny that it’s taken me all these years to find somewhere I wanted to be enough to make this jump into grownup-ness. I’ve always been so footloose and fancy free … and yes, a bit of a flake wanting to be able to pack up the car and head out at a moment’s notice. Don’t judge … I had reason.
So fingers crossed and here’s hoping that what’s looking like a promising start proceeds as planned. And just because I can’t help but be a tease …
