Yay it's ours

Well the seller acepted our offer. Yay! We won't be able to close until June 14th since that's when they will be able to get out. We are goign to have the inspection this Friday at 11:30.

Our realtor checked with the other one and she believes that they are taking the fridge so we went ahead and put a fridge as well as a washer and dryer in layaway at the BX. They were having grand opening sales and all whirlpool 10% off and also had individual 10% cupons. So we ended up getting almost $130 off the fridge and $35 off each the washer and dryer. I'm so glad that they actually have layaway here since it's not like we could put them anywhere.

I guess I'm going to have to go to work now :( Oh well

Michelle has been pretty good lately. She hasn't been complaining to much about the heat. It's been pretty cool today and windy. She's started grabing onto things and pulling her self up so she can stand. I don't think it will be to long before she'll start walking.

Be vewy vewy quiet, were huntin' houses

And after about 2 1/5 hours, we found one we really liked. Out of the 6 we looked at today, there were two that we really liked. Both of them are in good school areas and on the south side of town. Here is the info for the one were making an offer on.

3 Room
2 Bath
2 Car Garage
Built in 1994
Lot 60x100
Ceiling fans
It also has an alarm
Big tub and shower in master bath

We might have to buy a fridge, we'll have to check with the realtor. Either way it's not a big deal if we have to get one. The only thing we don't really like is how the front door opens into the living room but it's ok.

Heres some other pictures of it.

Were going to look at it agian tomorrow morning and take some more pictures :)

Ding Dong the van is FINALLY gone....

OK well almost. We are waiting for the green stuff to change hands, so to speak. We dropped the van off tonight 30 minutes before the place closed. They told us at 3:45PM that they wanted the van TONIGHT. Um...HELLO?!? I need to get a rental car first. The one place I did call the lady was a really big ... um ... yeah you know wicked witch sort. So I told her to forget it in a not so pleasant tone. We decided to just use the rental car company on Vogelweh. Brian told the lady at Sixt, the place at Vogelweh, the we wanted the cheapest 4 door they had. She gave us a Ford Fiesta and the thing only has 6,000 Km on it, which is less than 5,ooo miles. OH!! and did I mention the torrential down pour too?? Yeah We had to transfer Michelle, the car seat, and other stuff in to the rental. Let's just say said baby was not very happy about getting wet in the rain the two seconds she was in it covered up with a blanket.

As for the house we have had 4 different sets of people call the landlady, but only 2 have come to look at the house. There are few more people coming to look through out the week. Thankfully they are not coming until early afternoon. That works out for me and Michelle. We can get lunch out of the way and she's not super fussy or anything. I'm sure she has no clue what is going on but does notice a slight change in things.
