Why is house buying so stressful??
Thursday, June 20, 2013
My buyers have drug the process down so slow that my new house is now complete and the builder wants me to close. However, my buyers won't be ready (again) until mid July!!!! that means that I am now scrambling to qualify for my home with a current house note and no proceeds from the sale of my existing home. this calls for some yelling and some creative financing. I think I will sell my car and drive my kid's car for a while to make this happen plus get a short term loan from my dad and just pay him back when (if?) I close on the old house. this is very very nerve wracking! I'm exhausted and I have personal training today.
Things with the older gentleman are going really really well. he bought a beat up old sail boat for $1700. He's going to live on it part time so he can be closer to me. That was a really nice gesture on his part. He lives about an hour or so away otherwise. Plus we can go sailing! We've been making the most of the time we have left with the backyard pool. I bring healthy snacks and we enjoy them poolside then swim for a bit then act like teenagers in love. He got hit by a car on his motorcycle day before yesterday on his long drive home. Someone hit him from the side and kept on going. He lost his foot peg and injured his foot. He's limping and also has an oil leak on the bike. Plus he just got it out of the shop! i worry about him getting really hurt out there. Every day we grow a bit closer. He signed us up for ballroom dancing classes. We suck but we're having fun together. He is so sweet and charming and he loves me!! I'm a very lucky girl.
