Not a good day

This morning we had to be out of the house at 8:30 with all three cats so that there could be a house inspection on our condo.  I barely made it to my Mom’s with the cats when I got a call that I was going to have to go into work (in theory I am off on Thursdays, although not so much lately) because the time sheets I thought were due tomorrow were due today (chalk it up to much stress this week, I am usually organized!)  Marc had to drive me because I’ve injured one of my eyes and can’t see well enough to drive.

We returned from that and had our final walk through on the new house.  We get the final statement of our closing costs, which are a ridiculous amount higher than we were told we would need earlier in the week (tens of thousands higher.)  Then we find out that apparently we were not informed by our loan officer that they will not release funds for 3 business days, so we are not to get possession until Wednesday.  And this is a legitimate bank, you wouldn’t think they would be pulling this, but… we can afford it and will get the funds back when our condo closes, but still… I feel we were deceived, and we do not know yet when we will be able to move, we are negotiating (we have movers scheduled for Saturday, but it’s uncertain yet whether that will happen or not.)

Finally, I am stressed about work.  There are changes, and I am really afraid of my position being cut back.  I may be just being paranoid, but… it has not been a good day, so I am entitled.

I tried to take a nap but I couldn’t… so much stress.

  1. Moving is always stressful, but once you are in your new place with a paint roller in your hand you’ll be having a much better day. Sending smooth moving vibes your way. Hope you feel better soon and your eye heals quickly.

  2. That’s a lot to happen in one day. Hopefully, the stability returns once you’re settled. I hope it happens quickly for you.

  3. I have heard of banks doing this with the closing costs, in fact springing ridiculous amounts much, much higher at the TIME OF CLOSING. I would raise holy hell about it – often, magically! the bank will suddenly reduce the rate. There is no way that closing costs should cost tens of thousands. That’s ridiculous, and I hope you fight it! (I’m mad FOR YOU!)

    Hang in there!

  4. I second what Tina says — there shouldn’t be surprises at the time of closing. Fight it, and they should back down.

  5. I would fight the closing cost increase, too. If they won’t listen to reason, access your inner bitch (you do too have one!) and let ’em have it.

    I’m sorry about the stressful day. I’ve been having the week from hell myself–didn’t sleep for three nights from the stress. Must be something in the air.

  6. You have my sympathy! I’ve been there, with the new house, the stress of closing… just take a deep breath and remind yourself it will be over soon enough and you’ll be in your lovely new place!

  7. Okay, that sounds like a nightmare day. Take a deep breath, for every nightmare day there is always a good day and your good-day-turn is coming. I shower you with all good Karma.

  8. eeep! Just remember that this too shall pass. I hope that eye gets better soon! Fight the bank, it will make you feel better, there should not be surprises, at least not big surprises with this kind of thing.

    And don’t let work get you down, worrying about it now won’t help and you’ll just get overwhelmed.

    Good luck!!

  9. Dude, moving stinks. My husband and I are moving from California to Ohio at the end of this month, and I couldn’t be more miserable from it. I’m sending my empathy and positive thoughts your way! I hope you find time to de-stress very soon!

  10. I think you should take a lavender bubble bath!
    I’m so sorry to hear about all this stress, plus your eye!
    I’ll be praying that your eye makes a speedy recovery and that you can de-stress soon!
