We completed our first step in home ownership...pre-qualifying for a loan. That part was much easier than I thought, and they will loan us way more money than I think we can afford right now. There is other things besides a mortgage that one has to spend money on each month...utilities, food and Jack Daniels Whiskey! I am feeling a little more at ease these days but still getting little sleep at night. We are at the hard part of the process, finding a home we like that is in our price range. I am seeing that some things I want in a home are just too out of reach, one can still dream though.
One good thing that is coming out of this is the push in myself to start making a little extra money selling my crafts. It is what I really want to do and I am just going to have to make the leap.
