Yet Another House Update

Today we received yet another interesting update on the house.

It may be ANOTHER 30 days. My blood is beginning to boil over here. Every time I look around my apartment and see boxes, every time I try to cook dinner and realize that the utensils I need are packed in a box, every time I stub my toes on the way to the bathroom, I get just a little bit closer to LOSING IT. I'm trying, I'm trying really hard, but this is getting ridiculous. I don't know whether I should unpack a few boxes and try to put stuff back where it belongs, or if I should just grin an bear it.

We are already 13 days PAST the day we were supposed to move, and now we may get pushed back another 30?

The kicker though, is this...we don't have another 30 days on the lease to our apartment. We will have to pay another 850 dollars to rent the apartment for the month of February.

This Country Mouse might go postal.

**Thank you all for putting up with my house rants, I need an outlet, and poor Matt is more angry than I am so I don't want to put any more on his shoulders.


  1. That. Totally. Sucks!!!
    I don't blame you for wanting to go postal, I'd feel the same way!

  2. I would be LIVID. Is there anything you can do legal action wise?

  3. I wish! Not if we still want to buy the house, which we do. Its not the seller, its the government program. Its a rural development program, and they are really dragging their feet.

  4. Ugh! I can't imagine how hard the waiting is....not to mention having to deal with the boxes. I wouldn't blame you if you did go postal!

  5. Oh, I would be sooooo upset! Now the prospect of paying another month at the apartment. I would request that back from someone! I don't know who but someone!

  6. Oh man. No wonder you want to go postal. I don't have any words of advice....but I do give good hugs.

    {{{{{{{{Big Hug}}}}}}}}}

    Now doesn't that make you feel better?

  7. I totally understand. Our lake house got pushed by week increments twice and I thought that was horrible! Is it the bank? Or the sellers?

  8. haha thanks for the hug!

    Its the government program the the loan is through...the loan already passed through underwriting at the bank, that went smoothly, so now we are just waiting on final government approval. We have had several people assure us that there is no reason that approval should be in questions, so it is simply a matter of red tape.

  9. Hang in there, it will be worth it.

    You know how you when you forget your umbrella, it always rains? Or if you take it, then it is sunny.

    Use the same principle: unpack a few boxes and you will soon have to pack them again and move!

  10. Moving stinks!!! Sometimes you wonder if the buyer and seller could speak face to face instead of through realtors-could things get settled quicker!! UGH!!

    Alot of those goverment programs are getting stricter and stricter. When were selling our lawyer told us to try and get a buyer with a mortgage through a traditional bank because he had seen some postponed closings because of red tape and annoying delays...Sorry. Stay packed so you can run when you get the ok!!

  11. I agree with Lady Fi, unpack a few of those boxes. I can't wait to see your new abode. It will be so worth it in the end. This too shall pass.
