Update on Casa de Jetplane #2

We received a counter offer at the price we were expecting and submitted our 'final' offer last night around 9pm Eastern time. Our agent thinks they are going to accept it.... Do you want to know the honest to goodness first thing out of my mouth with Mr. Jetplane told me that...

"Oh Sh!t!"

Yeah! This is really happening, we're buying a 2nd house. In the past year we will moved twice, bought 2 houses, become a landlord, and will experience our 1st deployment.

We can 'do this'. So please don't worry about our financial situation. We're currently deciding between a 15 or 30 yr mortgage.

We were lucky 1st time home buyers that secured the tax credit of $8,000 last year, what my hubby's likes to call "Free Obama Money" and that's being used as a chunk of the down payment. If we would have stayed in NC we would have finished the other side of our attic for my office and a bathroom with that money.

So needless to say the stress level is high and I may have spoke to God at length last night laying in bed. Here's to winning big in Vegas....right?
