wish me luck

We're making an offer on a house. Making offers and doing financing is a pain in the @$$! So all you people out there, think good thoughts, say a prayer, cross your fingers whatever you do. I've tried not to be emotional about buying a house. I didn't walk in to the first place and fall in love. Really, we've been looking for about 5 years. Ever since we moved here. We're in a good place financially, we've got our stuff preapproved, we've researched neighborhoods and commute times. We know the school details, and the crime rates. Home ownership ain't happening in the city we live in, so we've decided to move further out. It will add about 20 minutes to Jeff's morning commute, and longer to his night time commute. But we really need another bedroom.

The kids are currently sharing a room, and it's driving me crazy. They wake each other up all night. No one is getting any sleep. The house we're offering on is 4 bedrooms, and a bajillion times bigger than the apartment we're in now. So yeah. Cross your fingers and toes, say a prayer, and think good thoughts. We need all the help we can get. :-)
