Twilight Zone

I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I am simply buying a house, and I feel like any minute now the folks from candid camera are going to come out from around the corner and say "Smile, you're on candid camera!"

First our loan fell through at the last minute(4 days before closing). We found a new lender and are renting until we close - theoretically next Friday. Today we got a call saying our second round of earnest money had been lost in the mail... Everything has been resolved but- wow!

So - Eric and I are off tonight to see a Pirates game and then we'll be biking along the C & O canal up through the allegheny passage. It will be lovely to get away from humanity for a bit. Next time you hear from me I will be a home owner... if everything happens properly...

I agree with you. I have never been so dismayed by our financial institutions as I am these days. From large nat'l. banks to local money lenders or businesses who want one to borrow from them where one might buy something large(like a car or bedroom suite, or house renovations).
I hope you enjoy your scenic exercise this weekend. I also pray your house woes will be healed by Monday.

Hey Rae!

Gosh, you've not had it easy with getting your house finances sorted. I hope it goes through without any further hiccups, and we can't wait to see you in September!

Lots of love,

Wow ... it's too bad that such a happy occasion as buying your first house has not gone smoothly, but once everything is ironed out, what a feeling!! Congratulations to both of you to (almost) being homeowners! :)
