Peace Ball 2007

This Saturday is the Peace Ball!

I heard that Councilman Samuels is going to do some singing...

Yeah, I did it.

I made a new blog for the new house: http://thehealyhouse.blogspot.com/

I'm not abandoning this one just yet, as I still do have the house over north, and stuff still happens there, and, well, I've grown attached.

But I felt like it was somehow wrong to post news about the new house on the blog of the older house...

So there ya have it. I am now in two places at once.

A new house to be a-bloggin'?

Alright people, hopefully I haven't annoyed you TOO much with my vague and foggy references to a new house that might or might not become the Rantys' new abode.

I've been deliberately sketchy about the details for the simple reason that I was afraid it wouldn't go through, and I didn't want to have to address a bunch of people asking "Hey! What's up with the new digs?!" for the next six months if in fact we weren't able to purchase the place.


I now believe it's going to happen. Our loan+appraisal came back okay(!) from underwriting today. The appraisal was an X factor for reasons unrelated to dollar value. (I will explain this appraisal situation in a later post, since I'm still doing some research about the particular problem we encountered, and want to be able to describe it clearly and accurately.)

Anyway, it's important to note that the deal is not done until it's CLOSED. Stuff can still come up, go wrong, get screwy, etc. The difference is that we are now over BIGGEST hurdle, and I feel pretty comfortable that I can deal with whatever standard pre-closing blips might come our way in the remaining days. (And I am treating this Friday close as a maybe. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it ended up getting pushed to Tuesday. We are cutting it SUPER close to get all the documents in order in four days!)

Now then, because I cannot contain my excitement one minute longer, and because no one guessed in my super-difficult trivia-about-the-house post, I have decided to reveal The Future Seat of Rantydom, in all its broken-down-reposessed-squirrel-inhabited-splennnndor:

So if all goes as planned, I'll be back to official house-blogging sooooooooooon! Hooray!

Pillow Fight!
