APPROVED –

with a condition. We’ve been APPROVED! With a condition however, but we’re going to do it. We need to pull out some assets and pay off one of our credit cards to qualify. We’re doing it – we have a fund we can use, we just have to access it and it will take some time. But we will be so glad – have the house AND be $6,000 less in debt!

So thanks for prayers – I’m so RELIEVED AND HAPPY! I just have to now start doing a motion for the Judge to release the money from Chris’ guardianship – I’m sure he will, it’s for his future home!

not much to update…

but doing it anyway. I have a sinus headache, and have a pile of groceries to put away. I didn’t pack at all today, but did wash dishes, do laundry, take a shower, and take care of the kids minus the 2 1/2 hours Ryan goes to preschool. So another busy day!

Talked briefly to the loan guy – still waiting on the underwriter (I don’t know why but I always want to type undertaker! he!). Said she is trying to get to it all but of course has 14 other files on her desk that have the same urgency so he can’t tell me when we’ll know the answer.

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhh.

Oh well.

sittin’ and waitin’ for the phone to ring

Well, only for a few moments. I’m going to be mindless and do a survey. I already got 2 kids off to school, took a third to speech therapy, and took a great 1/2 hour walk for some much needed exercise and prayer time. Next, back to cleaning and packing, since we’re moving out of here no matter what (just will take longer if we have to wait and sell this house and find another house if this loan fails!)

I may or may not know today, now. Lady last night said it may be a few more days. If I don’t post you know I died from waiting….. ha!

N-E-R-V-O-U-S

We found out we can’t use Rog’s mileage income for the loan, because it’s not taxed!! (They never send us a 1099 or anything!) So they’re trying to put nickels and dimes together between income and expenses to make our loan go through! It’s a difference of a few dollars of making or not making it!! Ugh!

I should know by tomorrow for sure. I’m so nervous.

Just praying.

I don’t think Chris has strep, he doesn’t seem that sick – but I’ll find that out tomorrow too. And Chris’s rash looks a lot better!

[ad#Google Adsense]

strep again?

We ended up taking Chris to the dr. to check on his rash he’s had since Saturday night. He said it was getting infected, and put him on antibiotics and told us to keep him home tomorrow. He also said he was unsure if it may have been caused by strep, since Colleen had it, and could not check his throat to look because Chris wouldn’t not open his mouth. So in 2 days we’ll know if it was strep, but he’ll be on antibiotics that will treat both strep and infected skin. He said if it is strep that could also cause the itchy rectum he’s been having too. Sigh.

I kind of don’t think he has strep as he doesn’t seem sick – but time will tell!

Now I just hope he doesn’t give it back to Colleen if it IS strep – that’s what happened in 99 and they passed it back and forth 3 times after each was done with the antibiotics….

Quiet in the chaos

Just ate lunch, and got Ryan off on the bus. I need to get back to packing. But I just turned on some Christian songs off Windows Media Player and thought I’d write just a little. It was so nice to finally answer some comments – Thanks for writing everyone and your thoughts/prayers.

It is so hard to wait on this house!! But I know if it’s meant to be it will all work out. All the signs seem to be pointed for it to work out.

It had to go through several steps – and we’re almost done.

  • Offer on house. Did that sometime in August, with waiting for THAT to be accepted.
  • Counteroffered, was turned down, but the other offer was lower than asking. In detail, we offered 134,000 to the 142 asking (I think?) then they countered back at 139,000.
  • We thought about it for a while, then decided to offer 137,000 with appliances included.
  • After we decided to do this, but hadn’t picked up the phone yet, we found out that Chris’s school attendance was NOT a given, and this was right before labor day, on Friday.
  • Waited 5 excruciating days for the school to say YES, Chris can come!
  • Called, gave the counteroffer, and was called back and told, 139,000 WITH appliances. We accepted. A lot of prayer had gone into this, as we were a little worried about almost doubling our mortgage. We will have to get a second mortgage, also, to secure mortgage payments on our first house while we’re trying to sell it, AND to pay off our credit cards.
  • Went in to the broker selling the house, and did loan papers with him, waited a day or so, and he said we were approved. Was shocked we didn’t have to give any income information. Apparently some kind of loan a lot of self-employed people do. (About the 7th of September?)
  • Worried about the form the loan was in, which was called a stated income loan.
  • Had attorneys review the loan (this was in our contract, as we had strange feelings about it from the beginning. Was told it was probably FRAUDULENT.
  • Continue reading

A poem —

Wow, I just found this poem as I was packing and sorting notebooks in my laundry room. I wrote this 8/26/90, just 3 months before Chris was born.

curled up tight
in a cocoon
hug the branch
call it home
afraid to fall
out of the shell
to unknown
dangers

can the cocoon
stay home
safe inside me?
what would this
safety bring?

dh 8/26/90

That really struck me – my 14 year old Chris, still in his cocoon, of autism, and deafness

  1. attention deficit:
    I believe my whole family suffers from this. Apparently I have it, but it didn’t affect my school work – I was kind of a brain ha ha! But my housework abilities suffer.
  2. back to school:
    I still want to go back to college, but this, again, is on hold. I really want to get either a music therapy degree or an occupational therapy degree.

Degrassi

Ash
You’re Ashley Kerwin! Rocker chick that’s very
calm, cool, and collected. Also maybe trying to
find yourself. You love to try new things.

HASH(0x84c8a24)
You’re Manny! You’re a great friend, always willing
to do things for others. You’re always happy,
sweet, romantic, and a bit innocent. Sometimes
you can be badly influenced by other people
though. You’re strong, you just need to
convince yourself. You fall for guys a bit
easily, which may get your heart broken. I know
you really feel like you love that guy, and
although he doesn’t have a problem hooking up
with you, a relationship is very unlikely. He’s
not worth your affections. But lately you’ve
had an attitude problem…and those sexy new
clothes won’t attract the kind of attention you
want, and you might get taken advantage of.
Don’t forget about those who stood by you,
before you got popular with the boys.

You are just like Manny. You know what you want
and dont hesitate to get it. You make a really
good friend, but at times you get in over your

Ellie
You’re Ellie. You’re probably very independent.
You do what you like, when you want to do it,
and no one can tell you otherwise. You don’t
like offending people, but if you do, you
really don’t care. You’re a real individual,
and you like it like that. Just watch your
stress level. You’re only one person and
you’re not expected to be able to handle
everything at once.

What’s your Degrassi: The Next Generation Personality?

Yes, I should be sleeping.

I CAN’T FIND the last Degrassi episode – it’s never on Limewire. I wish I could see it. And WE’RE NOT getting digital cable when we move, so will have to count on Limewire to see all of Season 5!!

Heartbroken….

(just kidding).

Goodnight — dori
