    WE finally found a house and are supposed to close May 14th. I am terrified something will go wrong. I am so excited and at the same time totally nervous. I have been waiting a long time to see the kids playing in their own yard. Apartment life sucks when you have kids. I need reassurance.....anyone?

    Krisy - don't go thinking about what COULD go wrong, think about your future living where you deserve to live.

    Congratulations! I am sure all will be fine and you will be moving shortly!!!!!

    Getting a house is the single most stressful thing besides childbirth/child sicknesses. So, just relax and remember that it'll all be over soon. And then you get tax benefits!!!! And a yard!!!!

    Like Mtnbkr said, it's a lot of work but WELL worth it. I don't think I could have decided to have my kid if it weren't for my house. I hate apartments.

    Congrats and good luck!!!

    I really cannot wait for the yard. As silly as it sounds,I don't want the pool in the back yard and Kevin does. We are having some "nice" discussions on that. I want the extra room and don't want the expense or upkeep. My main reason though is that we have a very active 3 year old and the neighborhood is FULL of children. It just makes me nervous. I know every kid in the nieghborhood will be at our house for a swim and I don't want to go there.

    Kevin on the other hand is trying to get our 9 year old son on his side for the pool-very dirty!

    I say,let"s get an inflatable one that we can take down anytime we want. I know my answer is the mosrt reasonable,don't ya think:D :D

    I love the idea of having a pool. The reality, however, is a completely different story; the work, the very tall fence, the insurance costs and the dreaded fear of something happening.

    I think I'm with you on that one. My husband's family had one of those above-ground things all his life...I don't know if they are the same in terms of insurance/fence/upkeep requirements but maybe that's a compromise.

    My thoughts would be, "Honey, that community pool is gorgeous!"

    Krisy, best of luck to you and enjoy it! The closing (and costs) suck, mortgage payments suck, heavy insurance sucks - but it's WELL worth it. The first thing I did was fence the yard in so my dog could run free, and it worked well since we had a son a year later too! You won't mind as much doing the repairs and such around the house either knowing your doing it for yourself and not something you're renting. Enjoy!
