Lark and Daddy exploring our future bedroom
Today is one of those days. You know the kind - where you have a giant throbbing goose egg on your back from being slammed into three different times while go-cart racing, and the house you are trying your darndest to close on has one more setback. At the beginning of this week we were cleared to close on our loan and we were so happy to finally be at the finish line... and then the title company found another issue - my name should have been on a certain piece of paper at the very beginning of the whole process. So, I have one more paper to go in and sign this afternoon and then hopefully everything will be in place. Except it is going to take at least four days for this addendum to be officially accepted. Everything takes so long. I am trying my best not to get disheartened, but honestly, since we thought we were free and clear this last little setback was a blow.
This whole process has been such a learning experience for us. In case you are wondering why it is taking so long the short explanation is the loan we are getting will include home improvement money on top of the house cost. So, we had to present our plans, get multiple quotes, have the house inspected and appraised as if the improvements were done, and then get approval. It was a lot of work. I don't think I have ever felt so many different emotions over anything, even childbirth, but I am positive it will all be worth it in the end.
I am ready to get past this process that has left both husband and I so jaded and get excited about becoming homeowners again. Because, really, we are fulfilling a dream!
