So, regarding the house...

I was supposed to be closing on my house today. It was originally at 11:00am and then moved to 2:00pm. Now it's not happening at all today, with actual date unknown. As I already took today off to do it, I'm just going to hang out at the uncles' and try to work on various projects without Missy using me as a scratching post.

It has been fucking insane. FHA didn't get their inspection results out until late, so I needed to get into the house and fix it up so it would pass their inspection. I don't even own the house yet and I'm working on it.

I completely forgot that I had to do a housebuying course for FHA, so I hurried up and did it online. The problem? Getting the certificate from the right people. I was told that, no problem, it would be done yesterday. Guess who still doesn't have the certificate? Yep. That is not helping getting the closing done in a timely manner.

There have been multiple other things they needed me to follow up on which I didn't have any word on until THIS WEEK. I needed to get certain documents from the bank, I needed to do several conference calls so the credit people would be able to speak to various other people, more papers to prove that my funds were not coming from illegal sources, etc. No, really, apparently I sell drugs on the side, and they don't want those drug funds to go into buying the house. After the house is bought, it's fine if my drug selling habit pays for the mortgage: just not the closing costs and down payment. What the fuck?

Oh, yes, and I'm still being told TODAY of shit that is needed. Why the hell wasn't any of this told to me last week? The week before that?

I'm high strung, my realtor is even more high strung, and I'm ready to curl up in a ball somewhere. At least I now have today off?

This is The Way Of House Buying. Believe me, been there, done that. Hang in there. It'll come together.

If they could let me know sooner rather than later, I'd appreciate it. It's the end of the month, and I need to get the rest of my visits in. *flails* I need to know if I need someone to cover for me or if I need to reschedule or what.

I didn't know I was closing until the day before - literally less than 24 hours notice.

...and then they didn't have the keys for my place because they hadn't given the other people enough time to get it mailed over so I had to wait for my relator who was in the hospital visiting her mother....It was one of those situations. I feel you, I really do.

I know how all that goes... I did it a few years ago right down to learning to do plumbing so I can fix that and I put in a new furnace before I could close and half way through the closing we had an issue with my ex's divorce decree not being right... it's frustrating but worth it to have your own place. Hang in there it'll come together!

I've lived in this apartment for four years. I haven't really touched a hammer or anything since moving here. When I had to help my uncle with the fixing up, there was an actual long moment of "Now what?"

I've been in my apartment for about 4 years... and used a lot of the home repair skills I learned from my dad, uncle and having owned my own house (where the ex and his latest conquest reside) since it's easier to fix stuff myself instead of waiting for the landlord... sometimes it's just easier to do it yourself...

So tomorrow should be my last agonizing day of real packing, with Monday being when the movers come and the last minute things are packed. I wasn't going to go with movers, but I realized my fifty million books are really heavy. Want to meet up for coffee Sunday evening to celebrate? :D

that sounds like a plan... I'm off all day so just say where and when, and congrats on the new home!

Considering I'm south Pgh and you're north, I'm trying to find a good compromise shop. Any suggestions?

um.. not really, I don't get down to the city that often. I do have a GPS now since I got tired of getting lost all the time but I have no clue what's around...

Any idea of how far you are from Green Tree? There's a Starbucks there right off 376.

mapquest says it about an hour drive... I've never actually gone passed Carson Street before.

An hour drive? *whistles* Why don't you pm me your general location and I'll find a Starbucks in the middle? :)
