House Hunting Day 2

I think I just need to decompress after looking at houses and blogging is the way I do it. So sorry if this is boring but I *need* to do this so that I can sleep tonight!!! We looked at 3 houses today.

#1 was a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath splint level. It was outdated but not too bad looking. We saw some signs of previous water in the lower level family room. J looked in the crawl and he could see water pooling. Great I thought this is how today is going to go...this house is out.

#2 4 bedroom and I think 2 bath, I don't really remember because we didn't see the whole house. We walked in and it was bad news right off the bat. We went to the lower level and J looked at the ceiling and there was black mold in the corner. He says to me, "Get out of here, now." We were in that house maybe 5 minutes. Totally out.

#3 This is our second showing of this house. It was the one we looked at last time for about 10 minutes because we were so discouraged with the other houses we looked at. It was also house #3 on the last house post! Anyways, J's mom came to look at this house with us. It is not updated at all but it has "good bones" and Sue says. She was so excited about the laundry shoot and I had to laugh. She called me after we left and said if we buy this house she wants some veggies from the garden. One thing I wanted in a house was a place to grow my own food, among other things, of course! We both feel at peace (most of the time) about this house and feel like it could be our next home but I still am feeling rushed. Our Realtor said we should put an offer in tomorrow. I don't know if I'm ready for that. It is a HUGE step. She doesn't want it to get snatched from underneath us but I think if it does then God is saying "NO" to this house right? Besides it has been on the market for 510 days. The kitchen and bathrooms are the original people. Not too many people are wanting to do that much work to a house. I just don't know right now and I can't fall asleep because I keep thinking about it and praying about it. But now that I have put it out in cyber world I have decompressed and I should hopefully be able to fall asleep?!
