We’ve had a wonderful eight days in the Florida Keys with Cody’s parents and are now back to reality.
According to the mortgage people, we are about a week away from closing, depending on when we schedule our appointment with the attorney. I’m quite ready to get this over with. So much paperwork! We’ve decided to go ahead and pay closing costs out of pocket and put 10% down instead of a measly 3.5%. This means that we will have the principal knocked down to $40,500 right off the bat. We will be down into the 30’s within the first month. Hopefully, we will have a new roof and a new deck by the end of the summer.
On another note, we’re getting a pig. More on that later.
