I didnt want to jinx it until he got the loan since the market is so tight right now. He had a few problems due to his divorce but he worked his buns off to get his credit back up to par and he is buying a small house up in the little town he works in that is a suburb of Difficult Child in upper VA. I am freaking out at the prices of property up there but he seems to have found a nice little place at a price he thinks he can afford. ~gulp~ This is one of those times when we as parents sit back and watch the little birdie fly and we dont speak unless advice is asked...lol. He doesnt come to us for anything so we just tell him how thrilled we are for him and how we cant wait to see the new place. I cant believe my baby is buying a house at 23!
