Nerves Ma'am? Why Yes. I'll Have a Whole Case....

Well, tomorrow is the day my husband will be returning home. I have been waiting for this day for a whole year, yet I am oddly trepiditious. A year is a long time, and a whole lot can change in a year's time. Plus, we have so much to do in the next couple of weeks with the buying of the new house and moving. Although we talk on the phone frequently it will almost be like meeting in person again for the first time. Will he like what I am wearing? Will he like what I've done with my hair? Will he like the fact that I've traded in my glasses for contacts? Weird I know, but as I said, a lot can change in a year.

Sooo, I've been trying to clean house today, which isn't going so well since yesterday at the new house I slipped and fell. I discovered immediately that I am WAY too old to be falling in any manner, and I woke this morning feeling as if I had been beaten during my sleep. Oh well, in every life some bodies will fall. LOL

I think I'll eat a sandwich. Then I will commence cleaning the house bent over like an old Crone....Life is Good!

Nuttin' but Good News!

We FINALLY closed on our house yesterday and not a moment too soon! After doing the Chase dance for nearly 2 months my legs were tired, my temper was gone with the wind, and I was ready to "tear the club up, " but I made it through that awful nightmare. Kendra and I have done quite a bit of work on the house already which is a perk when your parents own the house you are buying. LOL. I will have to post pictures when I get the camera back. Kendra has taken the camera to the "Puddin' Creek Mud Bog" which by the way, is my idea of hell on earth. We have all of the before pictures, but we are still working on the "after" work and pictures.

The next bit of good news is that my husband is coming home this week coming up! Yay! \o/ He has been state side for almost a week now, and I am ready for him to be home with me!!

Anyway, it all seems to be coming together. I'm looking forward to new adventures!! BRING IT!!

Why Do People Tell Me I Can't Do Something??

Maybe it is the rebel in me. Maybe it is because I am hard headed. I don't know. I abide by the rules most of the time. I am a bit of a non conformist. I am NOT the typical "soccer mom" though. I have funky hair, my nose is pierced, and I cuss more than most. So, when I got an email from my loan officer emailed me this morning and told me that we "can't" close on Friday, because the underwriters would need extra time to go through all of the paperwork that the JUST asked for on Saturday, which I GOT TO THEM ON SATURDAY I was PISSED! I have done my part, they are getting MY MONEY, THEY are wasting MY time, THEY need to make it happen! END OF STORY! Don't tell me we CAN'T when we CAN!

At The End of my Rope...

...and it is fraying. The roller coaster that is house buying is quickly becoming too much for me to handle. We are less than a week from closing, and I get a call from the mortgage broker with MORE conditions! I have had a less than a one day turn around on EVERY item they have asked me for, and today was no exception with the things that I could accomplish. NOW, they are saying that they don't have a current VA eligibility form for my husband. THIS is something they have had WEEKS to tell me. I am so frustrated! I am functioning today on VERY little sleep, because Zac was up several times during the night with his asthma and now this crap that could have been taken care of a LONG time ago.

SO, I had to email my husband to see if he can get the paperwork done, so the STUPID VA can proceed even though our loan has already been approved. Hopefully he can. If not, no house. I'm tired emotional and physically. I have been doing this alone with my husband being overseas. I've been working, running a household, and trying to be there for my children. I can't do anymore. I am officially DONE. I'm letting go of the rope.
