Details, details, details. They are necessary but I tire of them. Now I know what they mean when they say the devil is in the details ... I think I saw him in amongst the paperwork! Today has been spent dealing with appraisers, insurance companies, real estate agents, law clerks, and the loan officer. I was nice as pie to each and every one of them - and most were nice back.Those who weren't were gently told so in my nicest possible voice - not that they cared, but I somehow felt a teensy bit triumphant. I didn't want to make it easy for them to be rude. You remember that famous line from the film Network (that came out a hundred years ago), "I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE". That is me now ... but in a friendly way!
I spent tonight knee high in stacks of paper searching down property assessments who keeps these things??, tax bills, and a bunch of other stuff that legal eagles need to close our cottage deal. Scanning and emailing. It is times like these that I am supremely grateful for technology; these would all be trips to the bank and the lawyers.
Hubby and I are off on a weekend adventure with Kidlet. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
But first - I have paper to file and shred!
