In the Loop

We got an email today from our sales rep.  They are anticipating the road will be paved next week, then we'll schedule our pre-construction meeting.  While we'll be about 3 weeks behind schedule, they are still saying the house should be finished by early February.  I won't believe that until it gets closer, but I'm just glad we got an update.  I've figured out that its not really the waiting that's making me so impatient, it's the not knowing what's happening.  Although we're behind, I feel much better knowing what the current status is.  I guess I just want to be kept in the loop.  She also told us that our PM has agreed to work with my schedule which I'm very grateful for.  He's already got some bonus points with me.
As I mentioned way back when I started this blog, we are one of six families that bought a house that week back in July.  Our's will be the first one built.  Yay!  We're getting closer, even if we're taking baby steps.

I feel that one of my best qualities is that I'm a very patient person.  Probably the result of being with kids all day.  We signed our purchase agreement over 3 months ago and although I couldn't wait for work to begin on our house, I knew we had to wait until October and I was okay with that.  I was patient. 
We were supposed to have our pre-construction meeting this past Thursday, but it was postponed.  They still haven't put the road in.  I know we'll have the meeting soon, but it hasn't been scheduled yet.  I'm getting really impatient.  I know it isn't anyone's fault, I just want something to happen already!  I'm also bothered by the fact that we have to meet with our PM between the hours of 7 and 3.  Not an easy task for a teacher.  I hope I can make it work, but if not my husband will have to go without me.  I really don't want to miss it!  My husband keeps reminding me that when our house is finished we won't even think about how long it took to get started.  He's right.  I'll keep working on that patience.

We FINALLY got a call today about our pre-construction meeting!  The blueprints will be in on October 20th and then we'll have our meeting.  Of course they wanted to schedule the meeting for the ONLY day that I can't meet - parent-teacher conference day :(.  There's no way I can get time away from school that day.  Oh well.  We'll either meet on the 21st or schedule something for the following week.  They said groundbreaking will begin before our meeting.  I am beyond excited!  We're looking at an early February closing.
