On top of all of this, we've been in the process of refinancing our condo for around two months. Yup, you read that right. Still haven't closed. When we put the offer in on the house, the loan for the condo changed from a regular one to an investment property, which is apparently a huge PITA because of all the recent law changes for both condos and investment properties. This means that we've essentially had to promise them our first-born child, then our second-born, and well, why don't I just hand over my ovaries now so that we can get a move on this loan. It's not our lender's fault, but it's really stressful trying to do both of these things at once. Why did we wait so long to refinance our condo, you ask? You have to wait until it's been off the market for six months. Compared to the condo, the loan process for the house has been a piece of cake.
So, not only are we closing on our new house on Monday (even though the work won't be finished), we are also closing on our condo refinance the same day. I know I'm stressed because my usual routine of falling asleep easily has turned into laying in bed imagining all the things that might go wrong. Then I dream about our seller and how many ways he's going to try to fuck us between now and Monday. Have I mentioned how excited I am to see him at the walk-through? He has no agent, so we are forced to see him every time we need to get into the house. Delightful. I'm so freaking scared that things are going to fall through or that closing will be moved. We have movers and a cleaning company lined up, Jason has taken time off work for these specific days-changing things now would really, really suck. Deep breaths, people. Soon it will all be over and will have all been worth it, right?
Since I feel compelled to put a picture in every post, here is Lola bringing the crazy. I'm still not sure if she's going to lay an egg or what because she is screaming constantly and has started this "nesting" behavior where she gets on the floor and rummages around. Apparently she found Levi's bed too irresistible to pass up. Or maybe she is courting the chipmunk. You never know with her.
