I may vomit...

Out of anxiety. I've put in the home loan paperwork to start the approval process. Nothing has to come of it. I don't have to take out the loan if I don't find anything, or if I can't find anything or if I freak the fuck out and must back away very quickly and return to my noncommital, don't own anything life. Already every cell in my body is screaming call them and say nevermind!

Edit: Well, apparently I'm not so easy that they can do the stuff online and let the computer make the decision. A real person has to decide. So, I didn't get like an insta-approval. However, I have been looking at little places online and the part of me that isn't completely freaking out is a little intrigued. But mostly I'm freaking out.

I don't envy you. That is one stressful process adn I'm not looking forward to the day that we decide to buy a house.

Don't vomit; don't back out; dont' freak the fuck out.

You're a grown-up now.

Oh, and the process sucks ass. But you'll get through it okay, because PM will yell at you if you don't.

Or something like that.

Or I will be really nice and talk you through it and answer any questions you have since it feels like I have been through it a billion times now and we are currently in escrow on four properties.

Yeah, that's what I meant. What PM said. :P

Ho-ly crap PM! What are you, the next Donald Trump?

Hardly. I would shave my head before I would let that travesty of a hairstyle happen to me.

Jo, that's how I feel about my pending car purchase/loan. I know it's a necessity and I know it's a good thing and I'll be glad I did it, but it can make me want to curl up and die if I think about it.

I'm starting to look at buying a house too, Joanne, and it's some scary shit! But I keep saying like you do......"It doesn't cost anything to look into it. I can back out at any time." That helps a little. We're going through the Portland Housing Center down south and they walk you through the whole thing. You should see if they have something like that in Seattle. Good luck!

I took a first time home buyer class here in Seattle. And I temped for awhile for a lender, so I kind of know that stuff. I think I'm more freaking out about the most expensive purchase I'll ever make in my lifetime. And the now I've bought a house doens't that mean I'll live here until I die? And holy crap if I ever lose my job I could lose much more than just my apartment, I could end up being foreclosed on... Those kind of things are freaking me out. :)
