I’m starting my fourth week in Iowa. I’m kind of shocked that I’ve been here close to a month already. In some ways, I feel like I’m starting to really get to know the area and have a routine and am part of the community. Other times, I don’t feel settled at all and wonder what the heck I was thinking moving here without Jason and Hoss.
The end is near though! Last week, I found out that the seller’s of our Iowa house would let me rent the house until we close at the end of September. It was something I talked to their realtor about before we put in an offer, but needed to get through the offer stage and inspection before it could become a real option. Luckily, they were willing to work with me since they knew my situation and the house is vacant and gave me a pretty sweet deal to move in. So, as of Monday, I am living in our house and am 100% out of the dorm. You have no idea how good it feels!
This really has me feeling better about everything. The house is pretty bare because we aren’t doing our official move in for two weeks. Even though we have access to the house, we’re not crazy enough to ignore the fact that something could fall through on the sale here or the sale of our Minnesota house. We’re currently in the midst of appraisals at both houses, so fingers crossed they both go well. Part of me worries that everything has gone too well with this entire process that something is bound to fall through. Ah, the joys of anxiety.
So, fingers crossed that everything keeps going well. Knowing that Jason and Hoss will be living here in 2 weeks or so is really helping to keep my anxiety at bay and hopes up. The end of this crazy 1.5 months will hopefully be coming to an end soon and I’m so excited to have my family back together again.
