How did that happen?
This happened toward the end of our home buying process. All I can say is, my passport finally proved its worth in the absence of my driver’s license.
And good night.
We went to Hawai’i with friends and family to escape for a week.
Something about being trapped on a giant rock did not sit quite right with me, but we had fun.
Much of the same from previous post.
Escrow is that point in the home-buying process where you are writing checks for things that seem to never materialize, waiting for appraisals to be scheduled, waiting for appraisals to be finished, waiting for appraisers to send you the results, scheduling inspections to make sure hour home is free of sink holes, having your bank accounts probed, banned from applying for anything, and losing quite a bit of hair over the stress and anxiety that comes along with any application process.
In short, it sucks.
JC has bugged me about buying a house together for years. YEARS! Long before Ju came along. I don’t think he quite understood all of the qualifications that are required beyond having a specific amount of money to throw toward it.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but my early twenties were not kind to my credit score. I have since educated myself enough to realize that knowing your FICO score should prooobably be a requirement for any financial decision you ever make, including bubble gum purchases.
All that aside, I finally reached a point where I was willing to fold and start thinking about the possibility of maybe going forward with looking at houses to buy.
Two weeks later, we were on contract.
Admittedly, this entire hiatus began when I lost my Bamboo stylus.. again.
I mean, “lost”.
I’m back. For real.
I mean, until the next unannounced hiatus when I lose all motivation to draw and slip lazily back into the real world of work and adulthood.
Over the next few days, you’ll get the scoop. Where we have been, what we have done, and even some old toons that have been growing cob webs for the past four months.
Also, I found my Bamboo stylus again..
