It’s time

May 6th, 2004

Last night Joe’s parents called to inform him that they’ve decided to sell their house, and for now, are moving to Arizona. The house goes on the market June 1st. Wow, talk about turning things upside down. Well, that alone was shocking, but it gets better. His mom then tells him she wants to give him the king-sized bed, the kitchen table, and his dad’s tools, complete with large tool cabinet. In addition, he can have their Toyota Corolla, which is currently in Arizona, if he’d be willing to fly down there and drive it back. Of course, that means *I* would have to fly along with him, which I am terrified to do, but it is still tempting because we could spend a few days out there, plus I’d only have to fly one way, so if I totally freak, I don’t have to stress about flying back.

Obviously, we have no room for all this stuff, living in a one bedroom apartment with three vehicles already. We’d have to get some massive storage space just to hold the furniture, not to mention all of Joe’s stuff he’s been storing at their house like our bikes and his motorcycle. Me thinks we need a house, pronto.

Which leads me to the biggest, bestest news – Joe’s mom said she’d give us a considerable amount of money as long as it was used toward a house. Well sign me up! I guess the hunt begins now. I’m going to the library tomorrow to get some books about buying a house, mortgages, and all that fun stuff.

    Can you buy his parents’ house? They should give you a good deal!

    The state of Virginia offers a course on buying a home. It’s a lot of budget planning. You learn how to pay off the loan faster, and lots of other neat stuff. We had to take it to close on our house. It would have been nice to have known about it before. Maybe your state has something similar?
