W Is For Wow and Whoa and Wonderful

I apologize for my absence this week, friends. I think you deserve an apology so here goes - we've been quite a roller coaster this week as far as purchasing Rainbow's Acre.

Well, more than a bit, we've been trying to close on this property for about 6 months now, and have met up with every possible road-block along the way.


This past week was especially stressful - it looked like everything was a go - then something else came up - something that could only be explained and not fixed.

Luckily, we have a great mortgage guy. He fought long and hard to explain this particular situation on our behalf.

After quite a bit of resistance, the underwriters finally decided the explanation was acceptable.


Today we heard that our mortgage has been approved and that we'll close on Rainbow's Acre in a few days.

I can't tell you how excited we are. The weather has been beautiful here on the margin between the western plains and the Little Rockies and I, for one, am aching to dig my fingers into the warm brown plot of earth we're soon going to call our own.

Do you remember buying your first home? Was it stressful?

  3. I can just imagine your excitement as you contemplate life in a new home. I wish you every success. Warm earth sounds wonderful from my perspective here in freezing England.
