We are in the final days waiting to close on our home and I should be feeling super excited...but instead I am so overwhelmed that I have virtually shutdown both mentally and physically. I don't have the energy to do anything but think about how much we have to do in the next week. If you viewed my last video posted on YouTube, you would have found out that we hit a SNAG in our closing. I lost one page of my legal separation to my ex husband and I thought I would never need it. ONE page that I spent one week looking for in all of our paperwork and it is MISSING!!
I was so jumbled up with paperwork that I had forgotten where I had gotten my divorce! I sent a record request to the wrong court house about two weeks ago! I received a letter in the mail stating that there wasn't a record found in my previous name!! I was so mad at the court forgetting that it was my fault the entire time. (I felt like a moron!)
So this past week I was finally able to get in contact with the right court house and hopefully by Monday August 26th, 2013, I will have my legal separation in my hands! We want to close by Tuesday!!
I HAVE BEEN STRESSED OUT!!
We should be closing in about four days if all goes as planned! I am so happy, I've never owned my own home and this gives me hope that we will be settled at least for the next couple of years.
I have received a really great question lately from many of my friends, is your husband getting out of the military??
I can understand why they would ask, the military moves us at least every three years, so why purchase a home??

The military has been talking about not moving soldiers as often as they used to, with budget cuts, they want to at least keep soldiers at their duty station for 3-4 years. We are hopeful that we will be here in Washington for the next three years and if by then if Christopher decides to leave the military, then we will at least have a roof over our heads. God has a plan for all of us, crossing our fingers everything works out!
