Home Appraisal

I got my home appraisal back today, and it was good.  For how quickly the market is going up, I was a little nervous.  If the appraisal came back with the value of the home being less than I am borrowing, there would have been some serious issues.  So, needless to say, I am sighing with relief.
I am one step closer to home ownership!

I have been so busy lately.  I work my full time job and drive for Uber on the side.  My biggest project lately is that I have decided to stay in this area and buy a house.  I currently have a house under contract and am super excited, but it will be a ton of work.  I am praying there are no snags before the closing and that everything goes well.

The stress of the matter is that when I do get into a house, I will have to rebuy all my house stuff again.  I left so much of that with my ex-boyfriend, that it makes me want to cry.  As I start pricing lawn mowers, yard tools, ladders and just tools for the house, it is overwhelming.  Of course that is not to mention paint and the paint brushes and all the stuff to fix the house up.

In the meantime, I have been trying to keep a low profile.  It's kinda like being pregnant and not wanting to jinx it by announcing it before the first trimester is complete.  I didn't want to mention the whole house thing until I felt that everything was going well.

So, pray for me that I can close on this house and that there will be no issues.  Once I get the house, expect a lot of photos and updates on renovations, etc.  I have already made a huge list of stuff I need to buy and all the fruit trees I want to grow.  I have a ton of work in front of me, but I couldn't be happier.

Now, I just have to get her done so that I can start this new adventure!

Work Drama

The last few weeks there has been major work drama.  I have trying to stay out of it, but it has been difficult to say the least.  To sum up the situation, someone got a promotion over someone with a ton of seniority.  Needless to say the apple cart has been upset.

The conspiracy theories have been flying and the rumor mills have been churning at an excessive rate.  I have been trying to dodge it as much as possible, but the tension in the office can often be cut with a knife.  In fact my move to another office seems to be part of the plan for the whole promotion so I have been questioned as to whether I was privy to the plan.  Why they would think the new girl would know all the management agenda is beyond me.

So, laying low has become my motto that I live by, because I really don't need more drama in my life.  I mean I already live with a 17 year old.
