I live by the old adage: If at first you don’t close, cry, cry and then go play poker.

Turns out that yesterday was not Closing Eve. There seems to be a problem with how the plat was recorded by the surveyor, and with the surveyor’s office being closed today, closing wont happen until Monday. This really sucks because it puts me 4 days behind in my work and throws off all the money [...]
Since closing on this new house is like waiting on christmas for me, I would just like to wish everyone Happy Closing Eve. I’m quite excited. Short of getting struck dead by an act of God, we will own a house tomorrow at this time.
Shortly thereafter, a hellified amount of work starts.
Waiting on the 31st so that we can close on our new house is like waiting on Christmas. Or in this case, Halloween.
Much like the house we just sold, it’s a 1960’s ranch fixer-upper. You know, that thing Marilyn said she would never buy again. HA. Actually, it’s not so much a fixer-upper as an [...]
Jonathan has been slow to talk. We haven’t determined yet what is causing his speech delays, but his hearing has been tested a number of times and it’s just fine. So in the absence of knowing what the delay is (it could just be him taking his time), we work at getting him to say [...]

Hating Muslims doesn’t make you a better Christian. I’m no biblical scholar, but I’m willing to bet the exact opposite [...]
After countless opportunities to inform themselves, I think that voters that are still in the “undecided” column are probably just too stupid to decide.
At this rate not only will my 401k never reach 401k, it looks to be heading towards $4.01.
That’s not really much of an exaggeration either. Since the beginning of the year I have a personal rate of return of -40%, effectively wiping out every contribution that has been made to it in the last 2.5 [...]
I’ve heard a number of people, myself included, accuse Sarah Palin of being dumber than bag of hammers. I decided to rescind that opinion based on one headline:
Palin pre-empts state report, clears self in probe
That proves she’s smart, because only an idiot would’ve found herself guilty. She found herself innocent. Genius!
I could go the rest of my life without hearing Billy Mays’ voice ever again.
