Popping in this morning for a bit of good ol' SI peep Mojo.

At the start of November I came to the conclusion that I could not spend another holiday season in the marital home. I was not going to leave until January 2015, but being here is not promoting a healthy start to my new beginning. The memories are crippling.

So, I have been house hunting, well, more like villa/condo/townhouse hunting. At this stage of my life, with my youngest child heading off to college in the fall of 2014, I have determined that I want something low maintenance but with enough space for my children to come for visits.

I have decided to stay here in the midwest instead of heading back to the northeast for many reasons; 1. it is central to where all 4 of my children may end up living, 2. I've been here 11 years now and have a wonderful friend base, 3. cost of living etc...

Anyhoo...I believe I have found the perfect place. I am scheduled to sign a contract, to begin building, tomorrow morning. I count my blessing everyday for being in a financial position to go this route. I do not take anything for granted anymore in my life.

Sending mojo

Sending you all the MOJO I can this morning.

I actually think you are making a huge mistake! You should locate further south to the pleasant little town of Paducah, Kentucky!

Happy for you Macakipa. Onward and upward my dear friend..

So excited!

Also, we still have to try to meet when you visit your child at school in my hometown! I was on campus a few weeks back for a movie and thought of you.

Can't wait to see a happy response from you on this thread :)

Thank you all and please keep that MOJO coming!

The lot I want has a contingency buyer. I signed a firm contract for the lot yesterday. The other buyer has until 11:00 a.m. CST this morning to take the contingency off or forfeit the lot.

So much MOJO for you. I am thrilled for you and I hope everything goes well for you. I have to say that it gives me so much hope and encouragement for my home owners dreams when I see these posts. I hope to one day be asking for mojo for myself and IrishLad

Congrats Maka, I am so happy, excited, thrilled for you

Go for it.

I finally bought again a week before Katrina on the Gulf Coast. All I could think at the time was - karma is still kicking me in the butt.

But it ended up being okay.

Bebba1171 posted 12/9/2013 07:32 AM

Outstanding Macakipa.

Make sure there is room for my dogs and golf clubs!

Welcome14, I was supposed to eat at Patti's on Friday night, but they had to close due to weather!

Winter wonderland down here, but it is supposed to melt away this week.
