Friday Feast

What color is your car?

Forest green

If you could wake up tomorrow with full training in another occupation and a job in that field, what would it be?

Teaching, as in kids (I am trained to teach adults and already work in that field, but it’s not as much fun!)

How many times in your life have you had the flu (or something similar)?

Flu…probably a bunch of times when I was a kid (I was a sickly one!) but in the past few years, I’d have to say maybe once.

Main Course
What is something that has happened to you this week that you didn’t expect?

I took the day off on Tuesday to go for a second look at a house I am very interested in. I went through again, told my agent I’d be calling him that afternoon, etc. I called right when I got home, ready to make an offer. Silly, silly me! I told him how much I wanted to offer and that I wanted to ask for seller’s assist and we had a long conversation about the…well, basically, futility of that idea. So I decided that I needed to do some juggling financially to make sure my closing costs and the good faith cashola that apparently needs to go with the offer (which I totally didn’t know needed to be SO MUCH) is actually in hand before I move forward. I was disappointed but I need to be realistic here. So I have spent the better part of the week trying to rollover funds from one account into another type of account, with the same company, and banging my head against a wall. I may have finally resolved it after about two hours on the phone with them today but it still may take 30 days to access the cash. The financial guy said I should make the offer anyway, since it will be available by then, but judging by all the madness it’s taken to even get this far, I’m not willing to take that chance. Also, there is another offer in on the house and if the seller takes it, well, then it just wasn’t to be! As much as I want to leap at this – I know I need to be more pragmatic and not get into something I can’t follow through with in the end.

How old were you when you had your first kiss?

11. His name was Duane. We “went out” for all of 12 hours. Whoo hoo!

  1. good luck on the house but take it easy. better to wait than be over-extended finacially. So many people are having to foreclose right now and that ruins your credit for forever (seems like). things will work out eventually. 🙂

  2. Good luck with the house-hunting\buying situation! I know it can be a little stressful.

    We've done it twice, and hope to move in the not-to-far-off future, but even though our house has gone up in value, so has every other house around here!
