On Friday we close on the house, that is SO HARD to wrap my head around. It is mostly difficult because I have this long list of things in mind that need to be done or that worry me.
paint the walls
fix the firewall thing in the attic
remodel the bathrooms
find out who picks up the trash (not the township)
learn where the grocery store is
figure out our commute to work
put fence up so dogs don’t attack stray cats (we have been warned)
get moved in, SLEEP IN MY HOUSE!
get moved out of apartment, clean it
adjust to the financial burden of early home ownership – the hardest part
I am at the stage where I can’t sleep. I’m simultaneously excited and scared to death. I had my first cry about the stress a few days ago, out of nowhere. I just want it all to go so smoothly and not feel really stressed. I’m so worried about something going wrong. We’ve arranged the movers, the utilities and have a “Get stuff done” schedule. What could go wrong? Besides everything falling through at closing? See what I’m like?
