1. It looks like we’ll be staying pretty busy with company for a while. My brother spent Saturday night with us, and shortly after he left on Sunday afternoon, Brittany came to visit. (Which, if you read her blog, you probably know exactly why she came on Sunday instead of on Thursday, which had been her original plan.) On Sunday night, my sister called – she had travel plans for this weekend that fell through, and she was wondering if she could change her plane ticket and come to Raleigh instead. Sure, why not! So we’ll have a continuous stream of visitors for over a week, which is actually kind of cool. Especially since it distracts me from the fact that…
2. Our house closing date is going to get changed. The closing depends on us receiving some funds from the UK (we’re taking out a business loan against a couple of pieces of property that Dave and his mom and brother own together), and we just found out from my mother-in-law today that it’s going to take longer than we thought, due to the fact that we have to wait for lawyers and surveyors and all sorts of legal mumbo-jumbo to finish up. And you know, that’d be fine, if it wasn’t for the fact that we have to be out of this house on July 31st, and if we can’t close by then, we’ll have nowhere to live.
So, we’re asking the sellers if we can rent the new house for the month of August (along with a letter from the bank in the UK promising that the funds are, in fact, on their way… at some point). And I’m crossing my fingers and praying that they say ok and don’t decide to walk.
3. In other real estate news, for the past two days I’ve been trying to help Brittany find an apartment in the Raleigh area. It’s been fun – her arm is all banged up and she’s taking Vicodin for the pain, so she’s been very giggly and stoned through the whole process. I’ve been her designated driver, and I’ve been taking lots of pictures of all of the apartments because I wasn’t sure she would remember anything that we saw. But we’ve found a few apartments that she likes, now we just need to narrow it down and pick one.
4. Today’s date is 07-08-09. Funny.
It’s so incredible that you are helping Brittany so much annnnnnd just doing everything you do! 🙂 Sounds like a busy household for a little while, but that’s okay sometimes.
I’ll send some good vibes your way that you’re able to get into your new house, at least renting so you’re not homeless! 🙂
See you in 2 weeks!!
You are a busy Mama! I bet it’s kinda hilarious that she’s 1/2 stoned all the time and giggly, though I wish her arm wasn’t hurt!
All three girls are totally cracking me up, our house is a fun place to be this week 🙂
Hi, I hope Brittany is ok. I can’t see her protected blog and I’m so worried. Does she need more money donated for security deposit or anything? I would be happy to send a little more…I just want her to be safe!
Does she only give the password to her blog to people she knows IRL?
Praying in Minnesota and so glad she has a good friend like you to help her out.
Jo- Cindy is sending you the password in an email now (and I just followed you on twitter). thanks xoxo
