Nothing major,just seems like it’s been forever since I posted anything (though I know it’s only been a few days :P ). Hoping everyone had great weekends :)
We went on a short road trip to visit the Wife’s favorite (and mine,of her family) aunt and uncle Saturday,as last we’d heard 12-13 years ago that they’d moved out to Texas,but not that they had moved back soon after,LOL,so years went by. We missed them,so now that they’re only an hour or so away,we’ll visit much more often (as they will us).
As far as Quicken Loans and the whole house thing goes,so far so good with only one potential that that may (most likely it will) hold-up at this point,a copy of my dd214 (Army discharge papers) sent from that 3rd party company. QL had told me they wouldn’t accept the original copy (issued to me BY the Army in 1995),that I’d have to order one from the Record Archives place (no offiliation with the military or government,they say) back around the 7th of this month,so I did,and requested it be expedited due to it holding up the buying of a house,to close on Halloween. Last Friday,they tell me “Clear to Close date is the 22nd (Wednesday ;) ),we need ALL documents in hand,processed/etc by then to close on the 27th (note: No one said ANYthing about the 27th to me,not once,ever…but it’s earlier than I was told it would be,so no arguements here :P )….so they need it by the 22nd,but didn’t tell me such until a 10 days or so AFTER I’d requested a copy by the 31st….ok,sigh. Quicken Loans may actually get many people into their homes,but they really do have their heads up their rear ends…on a LOT of things (I’m being very polite here,LOL),rolling my eyes…at least they’re pretty nice people to talk to.
Not “being allowed” to give me a solid answer on “do we have the house or not” even now,I asked the question a different way,and she said “now THAT I can answer,like that,nothing in the laws or policies preventing that one…..”. I said “we don’t even know if we need to start packing our things to move,I mean….” (she had interupted me to say the above),so we were told “yes,start packing,you’re almost through this process”,heeeheeeheee,so we have,which is what I’m doing today. So fingers still crossed/prayers still flowing that nothing unforseen jumps out and prevents it all.
In the mean-time,already,the FJC is scheduled for it’s first maintenance tomorrow mid-day (remember,we didn’t buy it new,it was used with mileage on it)…after only a month and a few days of owning it (been spending a small fortune-hundreds of dollars-in fuel running for this house,and thousands of miles…). Next week,still hoping to make it up to Black Mountain again,and the following Saturday,still hoping to make it to an all FJ group/trail ride,off of I40 close to the NC/TN border.
Anyways,nothing much to talk about so I’ma go nap a bit (in bed by 0345 last night,up by 0600 this morning out of habit,even though the kids are on Fall Break,LOL),then get to cleaning up and more packing. At least packing this way-an hour or so per day-it’s not so stressed like a rush-job ;)
Happt Monday,everyone :)
