Let me start with a disclaimer *** I am very blessed and happy that we sold our house and are moving into our dream home***
With that said: closing on a house is a pain in the friggin ass! Dealing with getting our house ready to vacate, thinking about living in my mother-in-law's basement, packing boxes and realizing everything you own is crap, and planning for all the new expenses, i.e. mortgage, new fence, grass, blah blah forever... I am exhausted! My body is tired, my brain is tired, not fun. I cannot wait until next Friday, when we are done with our old house, and can focus on the fun new house ahead.
I have also learned that I am not good with business details. I just want someone to tell me how much money I'm forking out every month, and that is all I care about. I realize this is not the right attitude to have, but my brain does not care. When my husband starts talking about 5% down, contingency, yadda yadda yadda- you get the picture. I'm super good at paying the bills, organizing our lives on a daily basis-- but the business side is not my cup 0' tea.
Big Breath, whooooooooo........ I need a glass of wine.
