Closing Date: Pending

February 21st, 2021 at 03:38 pm

4th Offer on Previous Primary Residence was a success.  Inspection and appraisal were uneventful and sometime tomorrow we will know the closing date.  I am so thankful that we are going to have the mortgage monkey off of our backs. 

I can now start working on the new budget for April 2021 (Reboot for us will be Quarter 2!).  We will be able to save at least $3,000.00 a month before my pay as a sub is included.

Since we are dwindling down with cash poor and paycheck to paycheck existence, it's rather an odd feeling.  There was an unexpected upcoming trip for our oldest; she is off to Miami for work and her father and sister are joining her.  Airfare is thankfully inexpensive, hotel prices should be manageable, and the worst expense is the fee for driving a rental car from one city to another.  I was fretting a bit about how to cash flow this; and then SO got notification that his company is still paying out a bonus this year.  

Looking forward to swimming upstream instead of treading water and staying in one place - although afloat is better than sinking.

    What a relief! It took years for my parents to sell their home in Alabama when we got stationed in South Dakota. Super stressful!

    Ah, that's great! I can't imagine being able to save $3,000 a month. That's wonderful.

    That is good news indeed! Hopefully the sale goes forth smoothly and you can then start banking that extra $3K a month!
