I have never been very good at waiting.
This time is no different.

The timeline on this property has been quite long.

August – September – Steve and I had the initial idea of looking for property in Evergreen

Late September … We first saw the property online

October 6 – Our first showing
     After researching the details of the property, and finding the right realtor …

November 3 – We made our first offer
    After counter offer, negotiations, another counter offer, and more negotiations …

December 1 – At last, we finally signed a contract

December 15 – early January …  meetings with bankers
     Little did we know, acquiring a bank loan would be such a challenge!
     4, 5, 6, 7 banks later …

January 22 – A meeting with Jefferson County to confirm our ability to change building usages.
     The school -> a Lodge ….  The library -> a Cottage
     With approval from the county …

January 26 – 28 – We emailed paperwork, and more paperwork to the bank.

January 30 – Tom emailed to say that the initial read on the loan is “quite positive”
     We are moving ahead!!!

January 31 – Tomorrow was the last day to get bank approval, without having to file for an extension.

March 2 – Closing day

It’s a relief to know that we are moving forward.
Not knowing has impacted everything.
My mind is filled with questions.
What about Steve’s job?
What about CC?  Should I direct Challenge A?
Do we need to be working on getting our house market ready?
Are we moving … or not?

Now, it seems that yes … we will be moving.
I am overjoyed!
