Offer accepted!

So, Tammi called last night to let us know that our offer had been accepted. The only change that was being made to the contract was the Escrow/closing company.

I guess the seller even liked the closing date, which we set for June 1st, which is great because Sebastian is out of school around June 15th. I say "around", because our school district does not allow for school days when they do the calendar. I don't know why, I guess they're just hopeful that some miracle will happen and it won't snow here.

So our offer has been accepted but I'm still in knots. The appraiser for our mortgage company comes on Monday, and we really need that to turn out well to get the loan that will make this all work out the best.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that this is the best thing that we could be doing for our family. When you weigh them out, the pros for moving SO outweigh the pros for staying in NJ. I've been doing a lot of snooping around as far as the school district is concerned. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, I've actually been able to track down parents who have kids in that school district, and I've been really pleased with what they've had to say, because I figure that parents are going to be the most picky and critical about a school system.

We really need this to work out, more than we've ever needed anything before. And I guess that's why I've just made myself sick over this whole thing.

I know I promised some videos and I haven't forgotten to do that. I'll get to it, maybe later on today, but in the mean time I figured I'd put a couple pictures of the utility room in, just to entertain you. The first one is a picture of my dad taking video. What I like about this room, aside from the fact that it's bright, is that it's in it's own room, with a door, and the washing machine and dryer aren't right there in the midst of your living space. And there are more cupboards and a closet, and the back door. I like the desk, too. Kind of a cool idea, especially for us, because I could use this as a sewing room or a place to finally work on my dollhouse, or, we could even turn it into our computer area if space permits.

Anyway, I have a lot to get done this weekend. A lot of it is stuff I probably don't have to do but if I don't, I'm going to drive myself wacko or make myself more sick than I already have.
