Well, the process has started. I’m house hunting!! I’ve decided that after all these years of living in an apartment, I’m done with it. I looked at about 5 houses today, just to get an idea of the market in Austin. I’m very lucky because my realtor is a band mom and one of the private lessons teachers’ wife is a loan officer for a mortgage company. I’m about all set in those aspects. Of the 5 houses I saw today, 2 were houses I could feel serious about purchasing. My goal date is May so I still have a while to get myself all set to buy.
On another note, school’s about done for the semester. It’s been a semester of ups and downs but when it’s all said and done, all is well. I have my health, family and friends. My students have earned the successes they’ve worked so hard for. I’ve also found the time to spend with people I care a lot about. My credit score is enough to help me get approved for a home loan. We’re starting a drum corps in Austin and it’s already successful. What else could I ask for? I know there are things but those things will come with time if they are to be a part of my life.
