fter a week of agonizing over the financing glitch we encountered last week, I finally got the phone call today that we were approved for a mortgage. I immediately called my realtor and left her a voicemail. After not hearing anything from her after a couple of hours, and an increasingly impatient welfy needing to know about that status of the house we want to buy, I placed a phone call to the listing realtor. He informed me that he currently had no offers on the house. I told him he did, now.

Barring any unforseen glitches, hitches, or sons of bitches... we should be homeowners within the next 30-40 days. Yeeehaw.

Now comes the really fun stuff.

I'm very proud of you guys and of course hope that you thusly become homeowners, but over and above that I want to thank you for introducing "barring any glitches, hitches or sons of bitches" into my lexicon which I plan to start using at work as of today.

I just made that up and you are required to pay $5USD for each and every usage.

Great. There goes our rent money.

Congrats, sir.

Thank you! Of course, I'll be requiring that Paul come pay me in person and I'll expect you to come, too. We'll have plenty of room for you. :)

Excellent!

He owes you about twenty bucks already, BTW.

See? The squeaky wheel does get the oil. :^)

Is that what it was? It sounded more to me like, I HAVE TO KNOW WHETHER OR NOT THE HOUSE IS AVAILABLE ANY MORE RIGHT NOW. DO YOU NEED THE NUMBER? HERE'S THE NUMBER? WHY DON'T YOU CALL THE NUMBER? CALL THE NUMBER!

It got me what I wanted!

You're the one who is always telling me to be more confrontational. :^P

It made me think of that episode of Dexter's Lab where he makes a gadget so he can understand his dog when he barks.

"Hey you dogs! I can hear you barking! I can bark! Can you hear me barking? I'm a dog!"

Hey, awesome. Will you be moving your belongings by yourself, or hiring removalists?

Wait! You're a truck driver! You have the goods already!

If only it were that easy. Semi-trailers decks are REALLY high and not conducive to the type of moving we need to do. I'll probably rent a moving truck and do all the big stuff in a single trip. We honestly don't have that much stuff.

congrats, now comes the exciting stuff.

Don't remind me. While I love the prospect of owning a home again, I know from my previous three experiences with real estate that the figurative teeth-pulling that comes with it is a pain in the butt.

ahhh, you and welfy will enjoy making this your home.

I know we wiil. I have no doubts of that. :)

That's awesome, congrats!

Hopefully you and Shan can find an excuse to come visit us some day. Have I mentioned that we make whiskey and grow tobacco here? ;-)

like setting up "THE MAN ROOM"!

I have one. It's full of shit I never get a chance to use.

Oh yes, the new Guy Room will be glorious.

OMG! Congrats!

But you know now that everyone on LJ is coming for a housewarming party/sleepover, right?!

CUTE house! congratulations and best of luck! :)
