The Low Down

Is anyone as disappointed as I am that its only Thursday!? Seriously, yesterday I was picking out my clothes and I thought to myself, "I am so happy tomorrow is Friday".  Then on the way to work I realized it was only Wednesday.  BOO!! Oh well tomorrow is Friday and we have a three day weekend AND J is probably going to be able to share in the three days off! I'm pretty excited about that!!

So here is the low down on the house.
It is a short sale but the bank has already approved the price.  We are the only contract they have in hand.  The listing agent told our realtor that she won't be accepting any other contracts and that she will be submitting our offer to the bank.  That all sounds like great news to me.  At this point I am still reserved.  Why, you may ask?  Because the seller still has not signed off on the contract. 
I'm a tad annoyed -- the seller obviously is ready to be done with the home and he only has to sign it as a formality since we are offering what the bank is asking and we didn't add or remove any terms/conditions. Now, before you tisk me, understand that he has had the contract since Sunday or Monday morning. I know it has only been a few days so I should just keep my cool. I'm not freaking out I am just ready to move on and move forward.  We are SO close. But, alas, we wait on the seller. I am hoping that he has just been working a lot and when he isn't working, he is sleeping.  That is what I am going with -- it makes me feel better.  I know I shouldn't be all wound up about it seeing as technically he has only had the contract in his hands for three whole days. I just don't understand why he wouldn't want to sign it and just be finished with the property?? I mean, is it purely apathy?! I shouldn't be critical, I'm just ready to know so I can either celebrate that we don't have to look at other houses at this point or pout because we didn't get another lol

In other, much more exciting news, my sister and he groom-to-be are closing on their house this afternoon! I am so happy for them! (and a tad bit jealous but our time will come...) I am going over there on Saturday to help paint some of the bedrooms and the master bathroom. I am very very happy for them! =)

Oh and!!! I just received news that my cousin's wife's water broke this morning! I know a little overshare but whatevs!! They will be welcoming their little one into the world today!! YAY!
My cousin and his wife on their wedding day -- August 2009
And it is official -- I am totally growing my hair out because of this picture!!  PS: Try some biotin.  I started it because of Jess over at Polka Dots, Pearls and Pink...Oh My! and my hair has seriously grown an inch in about five weeks! YAY! =)

Happy Friday Eve!
