The Bad Friend

ITP-Readers Debbie and Steve, after consulting my calendar and workload I will be unable to visit the Moreland Day Spa one last time. At least it appears that the weather forecast is improving, yes, I’m still consulting weather forecasts. Good luck.

Well, at least everywhere inside the perimeter.

My thanks to ITP-Reader Stacy for snapping this photo and sending it to me. It took me a day to remember how to obscure the license plate, and I still don’t remember how I did it for the photo I uploaded last November/December, in which I used a blur tool.

Boring Is A Boring Does
After a middle-of-the-road German class last night (I keep waiting for the lightbulb to come on, and by now I should be able to say that in German but can’t) I drove straight home. After unloading the M6 and turning the heat up a bit I got under the covers and watched videos on my iPad. By the time this happened it was 9:30pm so I didn’t feel the need to do anything more than relax for the remainder of the evening.

Letting It All Hang Out Tonight
Today is my boss’ birthday. Since he didn’t have any plans to celebrate I offered to go out and get a few drinks and dinner at a place of his choosing. While I have been “good” of late and we both have been trying not to get the other to go out, today is a reason for celebration so all bets are off.

Perhaps I’ll eat an incredibly sensible lunch today in order to minimize the damage I do tonight.

    I wish I had good news to report after yesterdays “inspection” but it didn’t last long when the inspector found axles underneath the home- not modular, but mobile!! I believe the seller may be ignorant or actually trying a scam- not sure. What we do know is our pre-arranged lender has said goodbye, as they have no interest in writing a note on a mobile. The seller is supposed to produce some sort of document “proving” the home can no longer “take to the road” so there is still a sliver of hope. F. F. F.

    Additionally, the current owner purchased it 2 years ago for 180 and had it listed at 240, when we settled at 225 she jumped. How would you like to make 30% in this market in 2 years? That’s why I’m thinking scam…

    Well damn Steve – that stinks.
    So, does that mean we aren’t loading up furniture Saturday morning?

    I ended up out for a little hike at Kennesaw with JoAnna & the beagles last night, it wasn’t as cold as I thought it would be, I worked up a decent sweat being overdressed. Had some dinner at a nearby place & then we both went grocery shopping at Kroger next door. It hard to do that, since we had totally different lists.

    We are heading ITP for a mac & cheese party tonight. It was one of those FB posts that went off on a crazy tangent & somehow turned into a party so we can all taste different people’s mac & cheese dishes. This could be deadly to the diet.

  3. Steve says:

    No, the plan is still on for Saturday. No matter if we have a place to go or not, we still gotta go!! I was thinking about TC Friday night and just taking you home with us, then Allan can just come from the firehouse. What do you think?

  4. Barb says:

    hmmmm – not a bad idea at all Steve. Let me talk to Allan about it.

  5. Steve says:

    We are still working towards the mobile home (!!!). We’re coming back with a counter at our origonal 205 and they better act quickly. Our agent found their lender and they will still write the loan at a reasonable rate. The document was the county assement showing it worth $206, but still listed as an MH.

  6. Steve says:

    And Debbie caught a commercial building (up the hill) included on the county assement! Jeeze Louise! We’ll use that as a lever to get the price down.

  7. Barb says:

    dang – this place sounds interesting…….. LOL.

    We are going through house-buying shenanigans, too, Steve! We put in an offer on a house in Va-Hi, apparently the seller is a wacky theater make-up artist who is currently in LA working on a film. Long story short, although she technically accepted our offer we STILL don’t have a contract because she’s “busy working on a film” and can’t get to a computer to electronically sign. The whole thing is exacerbated by the fact that she’s using Duffy to sell the house. Duffy has actively impeded the process. If any of you were considering using them: don’t. What a nightmare.

    The other thing going on is that my co-worker and good friend got some sort of bacterial infection a couple of weeks ago and has been in the ICU ever since! She was touch and go there for about a week, had a really bad day last Friday, but has been taking baby steps since Saturday. So I’ve been living at the Emory hospital except when dealing with house stuff.

    Did I mention Kevin’s aged parents were also staying with us last week? Yeah.

  9. Steve says:

    Damn. I’ll stop complaining!! (OK, maybe not) Hope it all comes together quickly.

  10. Jenka says:

    Oh, you totally win on the house-buying shenanigans. While it’s been an irritating waiting game for us, I’m fairly sure we’ll be under contract sometime today. But I win on the almost-dying friend. Heh.

  11. Barb says:

    wow – you guys are making me feel better about my re-fi, they are just taking their time – what else is new.

    So Jenka – you guys getting married? or just co-habitating?

  12. Jenka says:

    No one’s getting married. Been there, done that.

  13. Steve says:

    Yeeeeooow. Still stings a bit? Don’t blame you.

    With electronically being able to sign docs now, there really isn’t any excuse on the sellers part. Big time movie makup notwothstanding.

    I agree with Steve, I signed the papers for my current house while siting in my tent on BRAG last year. Love the new electronic paperwork now.
