my niece penny, looked up at me and replied with OTI!!!! APPLE PIE!!!!
she thought i was just yelling out random letters. so she did the same thing.
it has stayed with me & since i always say OTI APPLE PIE when i'm so fed up!
this last month i'm totes FED UP.
and i just want my current status to be OTI.
we've been house hunting.
we told ourselves if we make it a year here then we will buy a house with out lease is up.
we told ourselves once we live here a year and get to know the area we will know where we will want to buy.
we told ourselves it will be worth it buy because the market is going up in houston. people are making a lot of money on their real-estate so why wouldn't we want in on that action?!
OTI APPLE PIE!
we have put in two offers.
one house had all sorts of problems, we got outta that losing $500 on the inspection we paid for to find out that there was all sorts of problems.
then the other house was a bidding war. we went 12k above asking price!!! and still lost.
then we found a house we wanted and was about to put in an offer and then BAM just like that it was under contract in less then 24 hrs from us saying lets look at this.
all the wards we have been to that the houses are in are a complete strug.
all the houses are in neighborhoods that you wonder about your safety.
all the houses are in good location so higher in price then we want.
house hunting bugs so bad.
then when you think all is done and closing is near. BAM they say you're not approved for the loan.
an then your crying like someone died.
then you call your lender and say ummmmm have you added everything in including bonuses?
then they say no.
then your like ummmmm okay well maybe you should do that before that before saying we didn't get the house 6 days before we were scheduled to close and 3 weeks before our lease ends and have to be out of our townhouse.
can't even handle how much of a roller coaster house hunting is.
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU SEE ON HGTV.
|we put an offer on this house. after the inspection of 50 pages we ran. ugh i hated losing $500 we had to spend on inspection and application fees. that sucked big time.|
|this one wasn't for sale. but i wanted it.|
|this one was so yikes. next to yikers apartments that was prob a meth lab.|
we didn't go inside. we just drove right by.
one thing we told our realtor was that we wanted a pool. a must / a need.
we got so bugged swimming at the gym pool with 300 billion kids running and splashing and crying.
sometimes you just want to chill at the pool.
sometimes you want to get in the pool with the lifeguard saying you have to move to make room for swim lessons.
sometimes you want to open your door and hop into a cool pool of water on a humid day.
however to get a house with a pool in the city is basically unheard of unless you're a millionaire.
BUT good news (or it could turn into really bad news)
we were cleared to close on January 12th at 2pm.
so we shall see. we may just be home owners after all.
