Remember To Breathe

We have the loan. We close tomorrow. Insert huge sigh of relief here. The competent and hard-working woman in charge of processing the loan told us a full hour before our loan officer called us with the news.

We are now the owners of a new home. And an old one too, as it turns out. Anyone need a cheap place to live?

We're off to the Sand Dunes within hours of signing, as it's a vacation that's been on the calender for a year, and reservations are made. So we don't actually begin moving in til Monday. It'll be a welcome break.

Banking trivia: The following types of people and/or things are actually qualified to be "loan officers" at the Bank of America: Dogs. Dead people. Circus clowns. Lawn clippings. Small piles of shiny objects.

Okay. I'm done venting. Time to move on.

Have fun!

Nancy Dancehall said...


We're helping you move, right?

So you can be a loan officer? *snort* Awesome!

(P.S. Chapter Limbo is finished. Onward.)

Congrats, and have fun in the dunes.

meno said...

So wearing my "I See Dead People" t-shirt to the bank is entirely appropriate?

Have fun and congratulations. We will most likely be owning two houses in a few months too.

Gordo said...

Yay, more debt! Have a greet weekend.

Diana said...

li'l hucky says SOL and I can't wait to be a one house family again!

Hilary said...

A big congrats! And have fun. :)

Sarah Sometimes said...

Great news! Congratulations!

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

That's tremendous!

I'm so excited for you. It will take you a while to settle, but you will, and then I can't wait to hear what comes of this new epoch in your life!

Ooh, that garners a big ol' WOOT!!!!

Have a great vacation and try to enjoy moving. Try. :0

Huge congrats, old bean. I wish I lived closer--Rainy Day Rita is the perfect moving-day truck.

Daisy. Moving was many things. "Fun" was not among them.

Nancy, phlegm could be a loan officer. Or, say, broken toasters. Thanks for helping us move. Bought a Wii yet, now that you're hooked?

E, the dunes were Big Fun. We built a walled city in the sand, replete with moat and irrigated croplands.

Yes, Meno. A "John Dillinger Died for Your Sins" t-shirt would be appropriate as well.

More debt indeed, Gordo. Mortgage, thy name is Ramen.

Yes we are, lil hucky. A one house, no stove, ten million unpacked boxes family.

Hil, thanks. Still waiting for the "fun" part, but thanks.

Sarah, thank you - and glad your move went well.

Scarlett, it may take years to settle in. How did we get so much stuff?!

The vacation was memorable, Maggie. As was the move. Though for different reasons.

You and Rita would have been welcome, Irr. Find a dog show up here - you can help us unpack!
