After a giant amount of stress and four months of incompetence, Chase bank has FINALLY granted my mortgage loan. So we are moving sometime soon and I will finally have time to work on retreat committee stuff!!! And then finish some of my UFO's lol.
It is unbelievable how many times Chase lost parts of my paperwork. Gonesewin was driving me back from retreat in September and watched me count to ten while on the phone with the loan officer who eventually got fired lol.
Added to that, the building we currently rent in had bedbugs in two apartments over the summer so ALL our stuff (including ALL my fabrics) has been packed up again for 3 months and we've been living out of a plastic bag with a weeks worth of clothes because the bank kept saying "just a bit longer" and we wanted to be able to move our stuff safely - did the bedbug thing once before and can't stand to go thru it again. It will be nice having more than 7 outfits to choose from each week LOL.
So now all I need to do is have the entire bathroom and kitchen ripped out of our new co-op, deal with any problems that arise from the renovation, and then move!
well, that will be a great relief! Glad it's finally moving w/ forward progress
“May God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.”
I am so happy for you Jane, I know how banks can be and so very frustrating! Good luck on your move.
Have fun unpacking and reuniting with all your stuff. Sending positive thoughts that the next step goes smoothly. Congrats.
Yea, Jane! Good luck with the renovation and the move.
Right now I'm thinking about going to 7 outfits for each of my kids . Their dressers and closets are getting out of hand! Guess I know what I'll be doing for part of their break from school.
So glad that you'll be able to get back to sewing before long!
Wow, what a hassle, Jane. Glad some progress is finally being made. Now, for that renovation to go smoothly and not uncover any money pits!!!
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
WOW!! So glad you're finally getting to move and have your own place! I hope the move and renovation go smoothly and you can get back to be the creative artist you are!!
I sure hope it is a smooth transition for you from here on out...it is never easy but big congrats for getting your very own place finally...Chase is not one of my favorite Lenders ...I sell real estate and deal with mortgage companies all the time...Aaagh!!!
Glad to hear your plan is moving forward ... at last. Friends here had bedbugs at a rental. A mutual friend took the furniture to work and baked it in the specialized ovens (not for baking) to kill the bugs. Had to be over 200 for over 2 hrs or something similar. They were glad to move to their new location with bug free stuff. Whew!
Groan and congratulations!
I've been very fortunate in house hunting/buying. But have heard horror stories like yours. Glad you are finally through part of your ordeal and hope the reno goes smoothly and you can escape the bedbugs!
Does this hat make my butt look big?
Congratulations Jane! So glad it finally worked out for you.
Congratulations Jane, and best wishes for a smooth transition, hoping all your renovations go as planned. Big hugs!

YAY!! Glad things are moving forward FINALLY! Sorry I didn't get to come see you over the holiday
Happy to hear everything is working and hope you will soon be in your new home.
So much fabric-so little time
Congrats to you, Jane! I'm glad to hear things are working in your favor now. Hope all is well for you - take care!
What wonderful news - congratulations!! You've had quite a time getting to this point.
Something has been niggling my mind...finally remembered! 1st DH said that his DD would step into his and his DBs bedroom at night and say: "GNSTDLTBBB"
Good Night Sleep Tight Don't Let The Bed Bugs Bite.

Great news, you will really enjoy your "new" sewing spot!
So good to be settled again... all of your old things will be like new after all this time!
