Saturday sucked. Jim departed before me to head to the house. For some of the speaker outlets he installed, he needed to put covers on them to pass inspection. I got ready for work and decided I wanted to see the new carpeting that was installed. On my way I decided to call my mom and dad. My screen wouldn’t come on. I tried and tried. Turned out the phone was so dead (battery). I thought the whole thing had died. After all, I had just removed it from the charger. I still don’t know why that happened.
I met Jim at the house, it’s so nice. Based on news from our loan person at NACA yesterday, Jim and I are just trying to remain UNexcited. A new email from him reveals:
We will do our best. All I know is that NACA has already applied for its broker license as national Headquarter mentioned to us yesterday. I do know it takes some time, as the NCCOB stated, and all I mentioned was, just the worst case scenario possible, since I always prepare for the worst, and whatever comes out will better .
NO one is trying to push/rush closing, and I know u must have inspection, must be cleared by our rehab department first, but I just needed to give u heads up. NCCOB has extended our exempt status b/c they must investigate/takes time to obtain a broker license.
Anyway, you know I always to my best and will continue to do so, in a timely manner, and we will be able to close, only when our rehab department states ALL repairs (if any) required by the inspector has been done by the builder. .
So I’m confused. Is the original date the extended date or has it been further extended since yesterday’s news? Jim and I’s word of the week “whatever”. Here’s some house photos:
I got to work and realized I forgot my security badge at home. I had to leave the entrance I normally go in, go to the main entrance and check in at the guard shack. Then I’m supposed to go to the main entrance of the building and get a bright orange sticker (temporary badge aka badge of shame). I skipped that part and snuck in and out of the building all day by having coworkers illegally swipe their badge to let me in through the unmanned doors. I’m such a rebel.
Without my badge, I also didn’t have my desk key. Oh and I forgot the ring I wear every day at home. THEN I got to my desk and realized my phone was missing. I had to have someone let me in and out of the building again and there it was on the car seat. It fell off.
My Saturday at work sucked. The customers sucked. They were rude. Several of them didn’t make any sense. I thought perhaps it was phone-a-friend-day from the psychiatric ward. A woman who kept me on the phone for an hour told me all about the 15 cats she had… most kittens. I was able to bring her back to reality and discuss business for all about 3 minutes each time and then it was back to talking about cats. Imagine, or not, the smell in that house. That’s just one story out of the 4-5 weird or rude customers I had.
The day was truly off. Full moon? Not sure.
Jim went to check out a 2 year old washer and dryer set off Craigslist. He got the set for $240. What a deal. He verified the washer’s operation on site with the owner by hooking it up to a garden hose. With a lack of a 220v connection, we weren’t able to test the dryer so here’s hoping. Jim researched and found a new comparable set for $1100-1300. He did good!
So Jim snapped the picture below on his way to/from the Craigslist purchase place.
Fun Craigslist photos coming for tomorrow…
