I've officially made an offer to buy a house. This house. Let me tell you something - It makes me very nervous. And I'll tell you something else - there's a lot of paperwork involved in buying a house. There's the realty paperwork, the mortgage paperwork, and other miscellaneous paperwork.

This is by far the nicest house I've seen that's in my price range. I took Mom & Dad with me to view the house, and they both liked it. Downstairs it has the kitchen, living room, mud room, etc. Upstairs it has two "kids" bedrooms, and a big master bedroom. It also has a middle area that's a little bigger than a bedroom, that's kind of like the big upstairs room in aunt Kathy's house. Obviously smaller. But I really like it. Mom & Dad really like it. And Max Dastrup (Brigham's Dad, also my real estate agent) says he thinks it's really good. So, I offered the full asking price (it was just reduced). That's scary. But I've looked at what I've been able to save from month to month, and figure I will be able to make the monthly payments, as long as I'm thrifty with things.

I'm really excited, and really nervous. If my offer is accepted, I'll post another blog entry. And my wishlist will grow like it's never grown before.

It is a nice house. It's in Springville kind of out SouthEast from that new Walmart by the freeway. If he gets this house, and eventually gets married, I can check him off my list then concentrate on worrying about the rest of you kids.

Much better!!! I like this house WAY better than the other two you posted. It doesn't look like it was built 100 years ago. And it comes with a swing set! Man-- you're a lucky guy! I hope you get it!

You should see the swing set.

Yeah, I told him that Benjamin will enjoy coming to see you...and hey, Maybe he would let you borrow it until he gets a 2 year old.

I'll tell you what, CK -

You move in next door to me, and we can put the swing set in your yard. It's pretty big, so I wouldn't want to try to move it too far. Right now the backyard isn't completely fenced, so it would be easy to move to an adjacent backyard.
