I couldn't make it up if I tried

I've been offline (mostly) since last Sunday. Why you ask? Well because I was supposed to be moving this week. We were supposed to close on Friday August 7. This was our SECOND attempt at closing.

Of course we got to Thursday night and I received an email saying we were NOT closing. Why? Oh because someone else didn't do their job. The lead paint test that's required on EVERY SINGLE HOUSE THEY SELL AT HUD wasn't done. How someone didn't notice until 6pm the night before closing I have no idea.

We are supposed to close now on Thursday next week. I'll believe that when I see it.

So lets count the ways this sucks.

I took off work this week to do house stuff (unpaid)

We paid for a truck to sit with our stuff full at my Grandparents for a week ($400 by the way) and now we're paying another $150 for it to sit until next week. The guy cut us a deal.

I have only ONE day of work next week because my boss goofed my new schedule up :(

We had to rig up internet stuff last night because we at least wanted to be able to have SOMETHING to do.

We have 4 cats who are unhappy crunched into a tiny condo.

My son keeps asking to go home and I have to move him again in a week.

I'm tired, I'm BEYOND broke and seriously taking donations if anyone takes pity on us. We're so far in the hole it's not funny. The sad part is I LOVE this house. The house hasn't done anything wrong it's the HUD people selling the house that are annoying me.

I'm a huge birthday person, birthdays are very important. So yesterday was a major downer for me BUT I did get to spend time with my family and have a good dinner and cheesecake and for that I am truly thankful. I know things will work out.

I swear though truth is stranger than fiction sometimes huh?


  1. Chin up, girl :) It will all work out and someday (a loooooong time from now) this will all be a funny story you tell at gatherings.

    Keep thinking about how much you love this new home!

  2. It's always a PITA to buy a new house, but this is ridiculous! I hope some idiot loses his job over this, or at least gets yelled at!
