House update: We made an offer. We signed papers. Seller signed papers. Realtor took our large earnest money check. We're through the very large first hoop (offer and acceptance). Barring any unforeseen Acts of God or horrible inspection results, hopefully the house is ours!
Holy cow, did we just buy a house? It definitely doesn't feel real at this point in time.
And how the heck are we going to afford to buy a washer and a dryer and a lawnmower? Anyone have any brilliant ideas?
