Freak out equals…(updated- twice)

8 May

On a whim I checked Craig’s List today and found a 3 bdrm condo listed for $1150 in Riverside. It has hardwood floors. And a yard. And it’s huge. And beautiful. And not even in the ghetto.

So I applied for it.

My stomach hurts.

I have no idea how we would make it work – I think we could – I mean, we did it for years before we had to move in with my parents because I was pregnant with triplets. We’ve just never done it with three kids. And our rent was lower (by $200). And Hubby didn’t have a car payment. And I didn’t have student loan payments.

Ok, stop it La La. Stop talking yourself out of this.

I can do this. I can.

Please keep your fingers crossed that they pick us!

Oh, and it has no appliances in it. So we’d have to buy our own stove, washer and dryer, and dishwasher. That sucks. But did I mention that it’s only $1150 a month!?

*Holy crap. The guy just called me back. We move in next week. We have to pay $1900 to move in…which I think we actually freaking HAVE (amazing). OMG. I’m terrified.*

**Annnnd Hubby just picked today to tell me that he finally got ahold of someone at Loma Linda who knew what they were talking about and it turns out that he IS high up on the list. Very high up on the list. So high up on the list that they are about to start him on anti rejection meds already to get his body in gear. I try to refrain from too much profanity on here…but…FUCK!!!**

    You can TOTALLY do it. I’ve been freaked out by so many financial things…. somehow we always make it work. It will work for your family. That looks like a wonderful condo, and how convenient that you stumbled upon it just now???

    Yay! Two great pieces of news (the best being hubby of course)
    You CAN do this. You will do this.
    Look on Craigslist, Kijiji, etc. for appliances. You’ll find what you need, I feel it.
    Congrats!
    And happy Mother’s day!
