Can I really care this much about flooring and faucets? Apparently, I can.

Rates locked. How can I be thrilled and dismayed at the same time?

Well, we locked our interest rates today. Ugh. Rates are a-climbing, that’s for sure. It’s lower than our current mortgage, but not as nice as even a few weeks ago. It’s a good thing all the really cool things are happening in our house. It’s a bit like distracting a kid with something shiny while they’re about to get a shot. On the bright side, we found out we are going to need to bring less money to closing than we’d budgeted for, so we are trying to figure out if we want to be good and responsible folk, and bring that anyway to put toward the house, or go furniture shopping. πŸ™‚

We also confirmed our closing date of July 5. Only 30 days to go!!

    I say if you can afford it splurge on something fun. All this saving and not shopping is well worth a little treat.

      Well, that’s what I think, but we’ll see if cooler heads prevail! πŸ˜‰

    I always like unexpected cash, husband would save, I wouldn’t disagree but would rather spend on something for the new home πŸ™‚
