Thanks!
Quoting SarahSuzyQ:

I'll cross my fingers with you that you get some interest and a buyer sooner rather than later.


Quoting countrygirlkat:

Yeah it will probably be about mid-June when we will go. House is on the market so we will just have to keep our fingers crossed.

Quoting SarahSuzyQ:

This is how it works with us, too.



Getting closer to your move, huh? Hope the details are coming together for you.





Quoting countrygirlkat:

We communicate really well about money. We have a budget that we stick to and extra money we always talk about where we want to use it. We will have to re-work our budget when we move this summer and our expenses change but we won't have a problem doing that.

We work on our budget together so there is no fights. It is when he spends money that I say...Um, on what? Now if we have a set amount we can each splurge with that would help us.

I think yes. We have been stressed about money lately and he is a spender and I am a penny pincher,

I told him before we got married that i dont want to EVER fight about money. Guess what? We never have. We've been together almost 7yrs and married for almost 5yrs.
