We're in contract.

Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean that we got the house. All it means is that the current owners accepted the counter-offer and agreed to sell it to us. We still have to do the inspections, the loans, and everything else that goes along with it. According to Danny, who has had direct experience in real estate and has seen firsthand how things can go bad, it's never truly final until they hand us the keys. But we are in contract. It's a good first step.

The first time we looked at another unit in this complex, we knew we wanted to live there. It is in an absolute perfect location. Close to our work, close to Daniel's school, close to the family. It has a pool, is less than 12 years old, and is next to a very nice subdivision. And the townhouses themselves are beautiful; well-designed, nice backyards, lots of kitchen cupboard space, and attached garages. Sure, the houses a little smaller than I would have liked, but the benefits far outweigh this one minor issue.

I can't help but be excited about this. I'm not going to get too attached yet, but right now, the pulse rate is rising. Pretty soon, if all goes well, this will be our home.

60 days seems so far away.

PS: We'll replace that fixture with something more stylish. :)
