Ok...so many of you probably know that my offer on a house was accepted! Yeah me!!! Well what I found out today is not so exciting. Let me start off by first saying that I have a 40 day escrow and it started on April 13th and ends May 20th and I have had my house inspection and my electrical quote and I'm just waiting on May 20th.
Well today I learned this was not the case! My house was appraised at $199,000 but the bank only wants to lend me $178,000. This is due to the fact that the seller bought the house FHA and flipped it and then is trying to sell it and she has refinanced it with the FHA...I think. That or she bought the house and since she has not owned it for 6 months, that is causing the issue. All I know is IT'S NOT MY FAULT!!!! Ok so I'm a little disappointed and I hope she can bring down the price of the house.
The other option is to go with a different lender. All I know is I really like this house and I am praying it all works out. With only 20 days left...it better be mine! :) Well pray that it all works out.

So today I walked up Mount Rubidoux with my friends Jenni, Tawni, Sammy (Tawni's cute baby), and Reese (Jenni's dog). We took awhile to get to the top but once up there we decided to cool down and enjoy the great day. Walking down the hill was much faster and overall not that long. After we did our excercise we all went to lunch at Flame Broiler. It was a great walk and lunch. Jenni- only 8 more times!!!

Ok...so I just realized that I have not blogged in forever and I thought it was about time. I have recently been really sick as some of you may know and I am finally feeling well enough to think straight. :) So my life has been crazy in the last month. I finished up my last class in my first masters degree and now am going to start my next masters this saturday. I am still on the house hunt and everytime I think I find a house that I can live in....BAM...it's gone!! I am still looking and am trying to not get discouraged. When the right house comes along...it will be fine! House hunting on saturday...hopefully it's promising.
