Jetplanes' BIG News!

Okay! First, NOOOOO Mrs. Jetplane isn't knocked up. But thanks for playing....


Here is the news...




We're buying a house! We put an offer in yesterday and it was accepted in record time, which we think means we should have asked for more...but oh well. We got all of the closing costs, all the appliances, a fence, gas logs, and several other odd and ends.

We're excited and scared to death all at the same time. The house is brand new and we're having the builder finish the bonus room upstairs before we move in next month. Its been a whirlwind. If you follow my twitter, you would have read the emotional roller coaster I've been on with this living situation.

Is this house our dream house...NO. Its our FIRST home. We look at it as an investment and we will rent it out once we leave North Carolina.

Okay...I'm going to go throw up now... We close on August 26th. They have to make some changes to the front porch, put up the fence, and finish the bonus room prior to inspection. But everyone assures us it will be done. Crossing finger and toes....

Holy Crap, we're buying a house...
