OK OK OKAY!

I am doing it. I am making a bid on a house. I am going completely insane with worry. I am stressing beyond all belief! This is a big deal. First, I didn't think we'd get approved (obviously) then, I didn't think we'd find a place until at least spring...and now...I am going to write a bid tomorrow. AHHHHHH!!! The next door neighbors are making this a really easy decision..they had a raging party last night, and there were all kids of chairs and cups outside when I got home this morning. Their dog is crapping on our walk...and they are spray painting the porch on their house. The smell is going right into my dining room window...and it is killing me!! I would love to go over there and give them a chunk of my mind, but at this point, I really wonder how much I have left to spare??

But anyway...the house is SUPER cute! It has new everything--plumbing, electrical, drywall, fixtures, kitchen, baths..everything! It smells like a new house when you walk in, all the floor coverings are brand new. It has 3 bedrooms, and 2 full baths. There is even an office area on the 2nd floor, so I don't have to take up a bedroom for my computer and junk! It has a full basement, and a fenced in yard. The other day, while we were looking at the back yard, you could hear the jet skis on Lake Michigan. You can't see the lake from the house, but you are totally close enough to walk...I am nervous as all hell, and since we have never done this before, I am asking everyone I know for advice...of course, the one real estate agent I know, I don't know hoe to get a hold of...and I would NEVER call her Dad to ask him...ugh! So, if anyone has advice, I am listening....
