Happy New Year! Let’s all hope the mess of 2020 stays in the past and we can move on and have a much happier and healthier 2021!
Our house has officially sold. We’ve moved into our temporary home for the next 6-ish months. We’re settling in nicely over here. After all the hustle and bustle and STRESS of packing and moving, I am looking forward to a month of doing nothing.
We ended up closing two weeks earlier than expected, after the buyers super shady agent basically forced it. At closing, the buyer had no idea it was his agent that changed the closing date, nor did he know anything about temporary occupancy. The forms that agent shoved down my agents throat to be signed ASAP, and she didn’t even have her client sign it! I refused to close until it was signed, the buyer was wonderful. However, his agent was 45 minutes late to closing and didn’t even sit in the conference room or acknowledge anyone until her commission check was ready.
Now we have a chunk of money sitting in the bank while we decide what to do next. DH bought a truck, identical to the one that was totaled in 2018. He’s very happy with that, and we got a deal through a friend. $15,000 – KBB/private sale value is about $26,000!
The rest of the money is to be left alone!! (We budgeted for the vehicle.). We did go check out a property about an hour away. Five acres of woods and pastures, at the end of a cul-de-sac. Very nice property, but the house was tiny, and needed a lot of repairs. It would have to be a cash purchase, I don’t think any lender would finance it in the condition it was in.
I’m still hoping to check out TN, but I can’t even get DH to start looking at jobs seriously. I think he’s unwinding from the chaos of the move. He’s had 10 days off of work and returns tomorrow. That stress is weighing heavily already. I try not to nag, but we can’t be here forever, and I’m Type A – a planner. Drives me nuts not knowing what we’re doing or where we’re going!
On another topic, I haven’t been feeling well lately, and tried to get a doctors appointment. They can see me February 26th – for a sick appointment. (No Covid lol.). Are you kidding me!? I know what’s wrong, and they agreed, but still won’t provide a prescription over the phone without me coming in. I’m trying out that CallOnDoc website instead, cheaper than my regular co-pay. Fill out a questionnaire, a doctor reviews it, and calls in the scripts. Hopefully this works out well. I can’t wait nearly two months for pain relief! Ugh.
