Driving, driving, a little bit more driving, and some houses!

So we went over the list of houses for sale and made a day of driving around looking at them.  We had a very large list and it literally took us all day to look at them all, but we made it through this list and had a few nice surprises.

There are a number of houses that we are going to make appointments to go see.  I'm pretty excited about a couple of them.  Most are withing biking distance to downtown, a few are a little bit farther north then I would like to be, but if the houses are nice, then who cares.

We've both checked our credit reports and are ready to go get pre-approved for a home loan.  I can't believe this is actually happening.  I have been dreaming about this for so long and now it's finally coming true.  And who knows, maybe we'll find something we like and we will be in our new home by Christmas.  Oh how nice that would be.  Then maybe we could have Christmas dinner at our house this year. 

We're going to call the real estate agent this week and set up a few showings, so I'll have some pictures soon.  Stay tuned for the second round of house showings.
