RUSH to MOVEMENT

It would be difficult to write everything that has been happening since Friday. I am so stressed that it is ridiculous.

We are closing on our new home in Southern Indiana on Friday and it has been anything but exciting and exhilarating. It has been excruciatingly painful. In a few moments I must rush to my insurance guy and purchase home insurance through him because he is better priced than what the bank offered. I fought about the taxes in escrow!! They had estimated them at 50% higher than 2006 taxes. Then something very ugly showed up on my credit history that I had taken care of long long ago. Like seven years ago!! I am to go to an atty office tomorrow with proof that what the company is claiming is not right. Thank God I am a pack rat, for I have the original loan and loan papers along with payment history!! Yea me! But still, I have to prove I am innocent. Ridiculous, and I am hoping to see if I might have a case for harassment.

Wouldn't that be sweet! I could champion every person who ever got in over their head and struggled to do the right thing!

I am stressed about many more things.....

But I do not have time to tick them off here. I must go gather my hanging plants and take them South to their new home. I am a-feared (good old southern word) they will perish here if I leave them. I was lucky there were storms that came and watered them.

I woke up in the middle of the night last night and fretted about them being so far away with no one to look after them.

Off, off again.......

One of the most god-awful, stressful experiences I ever had was the sale and purchase of our old/new homes. I thought it would be a joy; it turned out to be a nightmare. Real estate agents and their clients; bankers, mortgage brokers, ESCROW companies, esp. have a license to steal, as far as I'm concerned.

Happily, this too shall pass, and before you know it you'll be free to enjoy your wonderful new home. Congratulations!! I wish you all the happiness in the world... :)

Home buying. Ugh. I have done it four times and i hope to never move again. You have just reconfirmed that hope.

Mary, many realtors do all the work that you are doing there.
I wish you luck with the move.

Good luck with everything you have to do. Having your documentation on credit dispute will make all the difference. It's disgusting how inaccurate credit reporting is.

We have bought and sold so many homes, it isn't anywhere near the stress you are describing.

But in a month or so this will all be a crappy memory, and you will be able to enjoy the rest of the summer in our new home. Won't that be great?

OUR new home? Am I moving in with you? LOL!
