Old Couple

Friday, as I was driving to Borders to hang out while waiting for Ira to get off work, I noticed an old couple under an umbrella waiting for their turn to cross the street. After pressing the cross street button, the old lady quickly walked back under the umbrella and put her arm through his and leaned her head on his shoulder. Just her body language said a lot. It was like they were a young couple falling in love and on a date. It was the cutest thing I have ever seen. As I drove past them, I looked at their faces, and they couldn't have been less than 70. Maybe around 75, and they looked extremely happy and content. No stress.

I hope that Ira and I are like that when we get that old.

It's time.. get ready to go to our final walk through and receive the keys. We received word that is was funded yesterday and we are closing escrow today as planned. I'm excited and anxious. Today should hopefully be a good day. =)

Although I'm not sure cause I'm about to call the advice nurse to see if I need to come in and get antibiotics. I think I may have a sinus infection. I've been getting sinus headaches every morning lately. So far, I didn't get one this morning, but we'll see... it's still 8am.

It was not what I had wanted to deal with. I am truly not comfortable until we get the keys in our hands. We have a date to schedule the signing first thing on Monday morning. We have had the worst service ever throughout this whole experience with BofA. It's such bull****. Our loan processor has the worst customer service ever, and there is no doubt that later I will be contacting his boss. And if I have to, his bosses boss, etc. I'm irritated and tired.

Today is it. We should be getting a call from our escrow officer today to come in and sign the loan documents. Then we have to go get the cashiers checks and sign the documents. I'm nervous. Hopefully the money has cleared in his bank account already. I'm very excited that I keep coughing up green luggies. Hahaha.

I've been very productive at work, and I am beginning to really like it. I'm learning a lot about how to deal with certain things, and I really try to keep my mouth shut in certain things too. I'm also realizing that the more you get deeper into things, you learn things about higher management that you do not always like. I am feeling very sorry for someone who got stuck with a task/project that is morally incorrect (at least to the majority of people). This person will most likely become the fall back "you're to blame" individual for when this project backfires. I somehow think this is because the rest of the higher up management (above this specific person) does not have the guts to talk back and speak their mind to the head honcho. It's really sad....

On to a better note. I now have an official engagement ring. It's the ring that mom gave me from Mama Ana. I used to always wear it, and then I had to stop because it started to only fit my wedding finger, and everyone had started asking me if I was engaged. We decided to use this as my engagement ring. Like an heirloom. You know, I never really liked gold, but before I had stopped using it, I remember starting to always think of it as an engagement ring and how I kinda liked how it looked and that it would be nice to have mine be like that. Well...turns out it's going to be mine after all. Hehe.

I'm falling asleep, but to end this's the best craigslist post ever! (I'm copying and pasting since they may take it down since it's so creepy...)

I have a cottage/house near downtown San Jose and I am looking for a cute girl to live in, cook, clean, massage and also take care of the place while I am gone. I am in my late 20's and travel a lot for work. The house is spacious but very old so I am doing some work on it now. You would have your own room and bathroom. I think this is a great deal for the right girl. If you think you are a fit, write me back with some photos of you and some info about yourself. If interested, I will get back to you promptly. Thanks!

I'm Calm

It's now set. We have locked in the rate and loan that we had originally preferred and hoped to get. Now it's on to completing this loan and getting even closer to closing escrow. Oh yes, and it's closer to having to pick paint for the walls of the house. I'm very excited now. I'm not as freaked out now that the loan and rate is locked.

Although I'm starting to think that the person that did our loan approval either doesn't know all the rules, or he's trying to trick us into a doing things that aren't in our best interest. We'll see. We don't know all the details. Maybe we'll find out more later.
