As I have mentioned before, the Alex and I are getting ready to begin the journey towards becoming homeowners. We have had to take a few extra years to do so in order to repair our credit thanks to a little birdie pretending to be the Alex a few years back and destroying his credit via the internet. Had I known then what I do now about identity theft protection, I would have enlisted the help of a service like Identity Hawk to help safeguard us. If only I could turn back the hands of time!
We are hoping that this is the year in which we purchase a home of our own. A home that I can paint any color I want and decorate it just right and make it ours.
I sent an email off to the mortgage officer that has been working with us for the last year to see if we are ready to jump in and get the process started. Now I am just waiting for him to return to work from his vacation and let me know where we are.
If we aren’t quite there yet we will be doing everything in our power over the next few months to get there because we want to be in our own home before the kids start school in September. I hate the thought of them starting school and then having to pack everything up and move them and then having to get settled in once again.
Ideally we would like to stay in the same community we are currently living in so the kids can stay at the same schools and we will still be close to my parents.
So, keep your fingers crossed for us that you will be hearing news that we are house hunting soon!!
