Two Homes . . . Still

We got a call from our realtor over the weekend telling us that everything was finally cleared on our buyer's end, and we were most likely going to be closing this week—maybe even on Monday! While I was thrilled to hear that bit of news, my very practiced skepticism crept in, and out of my mouth came, "Yeaaah. I'll believe that when I see it."

Last night, we got another call from our realtor (notice it's beyond Monday, Tuesday, and even Wednesday at that point). It turns out: FHA loans take 60 days to close once everything is cleared. So, our buyer is now seeking out standard financing at this point.

Why this couldn't happen, oh, like, three months ago, I do not know. And, how did nobody know about the 60 days?

Obnoxious. Really.

Two Homes

We still own two homes, by the way. Our buyer is still having some serious problems getting off of her previous mortgage with her soon-to-be ex. I don't really understand how it all works, but I know that her soon-to-be ex was rejected for his refinance on Friday. So, that has delayed things again. I know that she is working hard (with her attorney) to figure out a way to be able to close, but it all seems really complicated.

And I thought my life has been really hard . . . you know? I feel bad for her.

Teenage Years are Gonna be Yikesies

Nora: When I grow up, I might be a good girl all the time, but I probably won't for right now.

Willis: Oh. Wow. How very rational of you, Nora.

Nora: (Glaring.) Well, I'm going to go nurse my babies.

By the way, this was after an extensive conversation about why Nora never eats her dinner.
