Maybe you’ve noticed (or maybe not), but I’ve been missing a lot these past couple of months. I had a bit of a slump back in March, went on vacation, and when I came back I was blogging like normal for a couple weeks and then I just….stopped again.
Buying a house! I mentioned not too long ago in one of my weekly recaps that I was house hunting. Well, we found the One!
It’s 4 bedroom & 2.5 bath with 2,280 square feet of space (that’s a lot!) on a little under a half acre of land. It’s beautiful!! It’s a foreclosure, so the price is great ;)
I applied to get pre-approved for a FHA loan last Tuesday at my bank (Wright Patt) and was accepted. I immediately gave the pre-approval letter to my real estate agent and put in an offer on the house. The next day, they told me the bank disputed the offer because they don’t think it will pass FHA (because it’s a modular). After a lot of back and forth, I decided to go through Prime Lending instead of my bank. I got pre-approved for a conventional loan instead and we moved forward. The bank accepted our offer and I signed even MORE paperwork. It’s been a lot of debating and a lot of waiting, and it feels like this process has lasted a month instead of a week. But it’s basically ours! I just have to finalize the loan tomorrow and then we get the property inspected.
No, I’m not taking a hiatus. But there will be less posts for the next month or two through this process, especially when moving time comes. I’ve hardly been reading at all lately because I’ve been too focused on the house. It’s all I can think about!
I will still have Life of a Blogger every week. That’s not going anywhere. I will try to continue with 2 reviews a week, but realistically it will probably only be 1 a week. I will post Heartbeat Weekly posts whenever I can, but no guarantee on those either. I have had zero time to make my rounds on other blogs and leave comments and that’s not likely to change any time soon – I’m really sorry! I will return as many comments as I can when I have the chance, but right now there’s just too much on my plate to give 100% to blogging. But I’ll still be here, I promise!
