Homework is fun when you’re working towards something you really want.
Our homework assignments were quite easy (with the exception of one).
- Grab coffees on Gina and start walking the neighbourhood. Check!
We went out on weekends and saw so many great open houses. Andrew and I definitely like different things, but we both found one that we loved in the Carnarvon area that was well in our budget!
My favourite though was in the Edmonds area! I loved the open concept, but it was at the very top end of what we could possibly be approved for.
- Write down our goals, and do them separately! Check!
We completely did them separately, but we read them to each other after. We both had a pretty good laugh.
For our three year goals, one of the things Andrew wrote was “fighting Natalia tooth and nail not to have a baby” and I wrote, “planning on having a baby”.
We’ll see what happens! Overall our goals were pretty similar, so that’s good!
- Sketch out what we’re looking for and make a must have list. Check!
This was fun! We did a sketch of the one place that we both liked.
I think our two most important must haves are: dishwasher and in-suite laundry. Can you tell we’ve been in a rental for a long time?
It’s also exciting to know that we shouldn’t have to settle, since there is quite a bit out there.
- Start tracking out spending. Yeah, this was the sucky one! Grr…Check!
Why did I buy jeans this month? Why do I still go out for lunch? Well I guess this is a realistic representation of how we each spend.
We’ll see what Gina thinks, and how Andrew and I will behave in front of her when we talk money.
We’re excited for May…bring it on!
