I just got a call to set up my pre-construction meeting for the house. Whee!

Tomorrow afternoon, I get to go meet my builder (the actual, real person-overseeing-the-day-to-day-work-on-site builder as opposed to the sales staff and design center staff I've met so far), go over the plans and upgrades, address any concerns, all of that fun stuff! Mattamy does this with the new home owners just before they start actual construction, and they wanted to get me in this week or next.

It's actually starting to happen. *g*

Am I nuts?

I'm nauseous.

I'm getting alternating chills and sweats.

My palms are sweating.

I haven't slept in 3 days.

Am I sick?

No, I'm just going to buy a house in, oh, about an hour.

I'm starting to think I might be crazy. Why am I doing this to myself? Oh, that's right - a HOUSE! of my OWN! With a real kitchen, and a fireplace, and a washer and dryer, and a walk-in closet and ensuite in the nice master bedroom and a guest room and an office and a garden and...

I still haven't actually signed the builder's agreement on the home I want. The lots aren't selling quickly - these particular lots are a little smaller than most of the lots in the development (2 feet less deep), plus there's a sidewalk out front, which means that the front yard is very small. Me? I think that just means less grass to mow, so that's not really much of a deterrent for me. However, I was holding off in the hopes that they'd offer some incentives on the lots - a few thousand dollars in free upgrades would be nice, after all.

1. There's no time to think.
2. There's no time to ponder.
3. You have to make a decision now. If you wait a week, the place will be gone to someone else.

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate, hate, hate making snap decisions?

I need some chocolate to calm my nerves....
