People tell me that all the time. Usually when I am complaining about why something isn't happening as fast as I want it to. I am a seriously impatient person. When I decide I want something it has to be right then. No amount of telling me to relax, be patient, good things come to those who wait, mattered. I just don't get the whole delayed gratification thing.
I've been trying to buy a house since my first divorce 5 years ago. We lived in a house his grandparents owned. A cute little brick ranch in a neighborhood of brick ranches, walking distance to the girls elementary school (I'm really trying to remember to call it this inside of grade school like it was when I was that age)
Its been one thing after another. Had I known I was going to spend my life alone, I probably would have done a few things differently in college. Like choice a career path that equaled money instead of something I enjoyed. But that's a story for another day.
On Friday, at 2:00 I will be signing my name 200 million times and getting the keys to my first house. I really didn't think I would ever get to this point.
So I guess I am trying to make the announcement that I will officially be in debt the rest of my life....but NEVER have to move again unless I'm moving to a nursing home into a confession. Ok here is a confession...I wanted to punch a lot of people during this crazy process. Most recently the appraiser who screwed me over twice. I somehow refrained and my reward is a set of shiny keys to my very own bachelorette pad.
