Condo update

So my condo was supposed to be finished in mid to late July. Last week my builder called to tell me that I close June 9th. JUNE 9th!!! I'm pretty sure I blacked from the lack of oxygen reaching my brain. I was completely panicking.

Since then there has been a flurry of activity around here-getting my insurance set up, putting together my down payment, submitting my loan documents, buying furniture, etc. There is so much to do that there is a distinct possibility I will lose my mind completely.

But every time I start to hyperventilate from the stress, I just look outside at my newly washed car…covered in bird shit because it sits under a tree instead of a garage, and then I calm down and realize that this moving thing will be pretty awesome.

Moral: There is nothing like a little bit of bird shit to make you remember the big picture.

I don't really know what that means, but remember it because it seems like it might come in handy for you someday.

That's a wonderful moral! We're also saving to buy a house. At our present house we don't have a garage so I too am motivated by bird poop avoidance. Congrats on home ownership!

Danielle, at first I thought that was some sort of code and was tempted to try to break it...well, wasn't I just plain old wrong! Holy crap, maybe you should get somebody to type for you next time you drink. Funny though, keep up the good work - go Tuesday night.

do not let the house stress get you. the flurry of closing is totally crazy but so cool when you slow down to think about what you're actually doing.
