Well we’ve had a fantastic trip! We cruised around the Caribbean islands of St. Thomas USVI, Barbados, St. Lucia, and St. Kitts; celebrated a 35th anniversary, celebrated a 65th birthday, spent some quality time with family and most importantly, got some MUCH needed R&R! Not bad for 8 days huh?
After having a little fun last night, we decided to leave the rest to the professionals who came in today to get started with the real demo work. Here’s a quick peek at the progress at the end of the first day.
As you know, our closing got delayed by one day. Boo right? We thought so too. The upside however, is that because of that ONE seemingly insignificant day, our first mortgage payment has now been delayed by ONEMONTH! Woo hoo!!! I guess it’s true what they say – everything happens for a reason. 🙂
Well today was closing day. Sort of. At least it was supposed to be. As it turns out, however there was an error in the mortgage paperwork that caused a delay in the final release of funds between the bank and our lawyer’s office. Despite everyone’s feverish attempts to rectify things, ultimately the clock just ran out before the issue could be resolved.
