My husband and I just bought a house!!!
:woohoo: We just bought a house. A 3 bedroom mobile/modular on a quiet tree lined street just out of town. Lovely area.... Something I never thought we would do! Instead of feeling really happy though, I feel stressed and scared. It takes two incomes to manage a 3 kid family and home. My husband works hard, but doesn't make the best wage. Now the pressure will be on me to work as well. But that;'s life right? I have managed to work from home for a few years, but because of money issues, I am afraid it won' t be enough anymore. BTW, does anyone else live in a larger mobile/modular and really like it??? In a way I AM happy. I get to act like everyone else and have a home and be in debt now!!! LoL.~TRACEY~ Wife and Mother of three beautiful

Congratulations! Your feelings of anxiety are completely normal! Buying a house is a big step in life and it's scary. I had major anxiety and buyers remorse whenever we've closed on a house (we're in our second because of a move). I also came to love both houses and both neighborhoods so each was really a wonderful move for us in the long run.mom_in_ma

Congratulations! My husband and I also just purchased our first home, and have been living in it for about a week now. It is a bit surreal. It is truly a neat feeling, and very exciting! Have fun!

Congrats on the new home purchase!
I certainly understand the dual income thing. My DH got a new job a year ago. And while he does make better money, it isn't enough to cover our old debt and current expenses.
Sometimes I wished that I could work part-time so that I could have more time to rest, but then I wouldn't have any benefits so I guess I will hold out as long as my body will let me!
Good luck to you and stay positive. Enjoy the new place while it's new!!!!Wendi
