Don't jinx me

OK, I am in a very tentatively ecstatic mood. Let me splain. As I wrote before, the husband and I went house hunting with our fab realtor this weekend. We were not due to meet her until 1 due to a prior engagement on her part, so we had the morning to kill. We grabbed a quick bite to eat and then headed over to an Open House at a for sale by owner house. I am very new to this whole real estate deal so I was unaware that FSBO people do not wish to work with realtors AT ALL. I just thought they were saving money by not choosing to be represented themselves. Well, we loved the house, but as I said, we had more to see. Long story short, after a rather hot as fuck day looking at various houses, we narrowed it down to two - the FSBO house and the very first house we looked at with the realtor. The houses were tied in my mind but I was ever so slightly leaning toward the non-FSBO house, but the husband was all over the FSBO one. We discussed it with our realtor who informed us that the owners of that house may not want to deal with her at all. I so had no clue. Duh. Let's fast forward - they were willing to work with her. WE HAVE A SIGNED CONTRACT AND A BID ON THEIR HOUSE. So now we have to get together with our finance guy and make sure that this is definitely doable. As I said before, we were approved up to a certain amount - this house fits those requirements, so one would think that this is a slam dunk, no? However, this shit makes me nervous. I am so afraid that the finance man will go "Oh, you paid a light bill late 8 years ago - DENIED." So until their are keys in my hand and the next 30 years of my life are now accounted for financially, let's just say I am cautiously optimistic. Knock on wood. Throw salt over shoulder. Spit Spit.
