No school or work

October 29th, 2012 at 04:03 pm

The whole family was home due to the storm. We've had nonstop rain and wind for two days now, yuck. I guess it all comes to land tonight?

I filled the day with homework for my online class. I also started an apron that I am sending SO's sister for a birthday gift. It is almost complete. The girls and I baked cookies as well.

SO and I came up with a basic financial plan to keep the house if she gets orders to D.C. Managing two households will be tight, but doable. The good news is that I helped SO refinance with her mortgage lender, they did a streamlined refinance over the phone. After all the paperwork goes through we will save about $280 a month! We are both thrilled, and that will really help us keep the house and an apartment for work.

Besides that there isn't much going on. Just Waiting. And shuddering everytime a big wind wooshes by, praying it doesn't knock out a window.

    Stay safe and hopeful you don't lose power or suffer any damage to the house. I'm guessing the re-fi mortgage means you will pay $ 280. less as your monthly payment but it doesn't actually change the amount owed on the mortgage. How much of each payment will go to the principal and how much will go to interest? It's important to run a spread sheet to track where the money goes if that information is not supplied by the lender.
