So we are now playing the waiting game and I am not a good waiter but I took some advice and started to look at/think about other things that will get my mind off of the waiting. So this post is for that.
First of all I did some budgeting and calculating and it looks like we are going to have just enough to close and furnish our hose in February. So with that being said...how due I politely tell my family and friends that I don't want anything from them for Christmas because I can't afford to get them anything? I don't want to be rude but I normally am the one in the family that goes all out because I like spending money to get things for other people. This year I just can't let that happen....so trying to thing of a way I explain this to my family and friends with out making them mad.
Second...I figured out (by looking at the blogs) the two things I am going to be disappointed with when the house is done. First off we added two recessed lights above the fireplace...I wanted the spotlight effect. Then a week after it was to late to change anything I was explaining to our old sale's rep how excited I was about the mantel and she was liked "Oh you chose recessed lights not eye ball lights so you may not get the effect you want"....Really!?! I explained this to you last week when I added the lights and you couldn't have said anything then? So maybe it is my fault but I am still sad about it. I have a friend that is building in a different community and she said that we may be able to just switch them out.... Is that possible? Oh well not that big of a deal...Guess its just my OCD kicking in.
The second thing I will be disappointed with is the master bathroom. When original SR asked if i wanted "porcelain or fiberglass" I asked what the difference is. She said well Porcelain is harder to clean. I said oh well I don't want that. And when we went to right rug because I was not getting a porcelain tub and vinyl for the bathrooms...they did not ask me about tile options for the bathroom. Now I am sad because I see how pretty the porcelain is and I wish I would have known the true difference so that I could make an educated decision. Too late now.
I have been looking through everyone's blogs and it has kept my spirits up to see everyone building! Can't wait to be able to post pictures of ours. another thing I can't wait for is school to be over! Hubby is 1 1/2 semesters away from graduating with his masters. UGH I still have 1 1/2 years until I graduate with my bachelors...so hard to think about school when all I want to do is dream about the house :)
Well that’s about all for now...To those of you building keep the pictures coming because I am stalking your pages :o)
