So today is Wednesday, and we have not heard word on closing. So many of you know my personality which is very tenacious. I would not be lying to you if I told you that I have called the title agency at least three times on my own, I have called the sales agent and Freddie Mac numerous times, and I am in close contact with the realtor that sold me the house the lovely Miss Megan Martini, yes just like the drink, from Kelly Warner’s agency in Mahoning County, Ohio. The sales agent for Freddie Mac has informed me that there is a paper that they have to sign on their end and they’re going to try to get that signed sheet over to the title agency and then get in touch with me and we will take care of the closing.
Did you ever notice in life that sometimes everything is going wrong, and then one day you hear something and it’s like the best news in the world. Well that happened to me yesterday. The title agency did not receive my check that I had certified to them for the earnest, my cashiers check, so I took care of trying to find out where that check was at. The United States Postal Service had sent me a text saying it was in route to deliver so I called the title agency, and spoke with the secretary or I mean receptionist there in the office. As we were talking, she said numerous times that she wouldn’t be able to help me because she was just a receptionist. So I said to her I was looking for a certified that came in there and it said it was out for delivery which means it was in the vehicle of your mail carriers and if no one is there when he shows up he takes it back to the post office and he will try again three times. After the third time, it’s going to come back to me which we have to avoid. So I’m calling to ask you, even though you’re just a receptionist, did you get your mail yet there today? The girl who claimed she was just the receptionist, said yes he just handed it to me, and I have two pieces in my hand and one of them is a certified. And I said well can you look in the left-hand corner and tell me if it’s my address. She replied yes it is your address and we do have your check. So I told her well I don’t need to speak to the owner because the receptionist was able to help me !!!!
The following day, I contacted Crystal at the title agency who is handling the closing. The closing agency is in Columbus Ohio. I had feared all along that we would have to drive to Columbus to close on this because it was a Freddie Mac and everything they do is different from the norm. But Crystal explain to me that we don’t have to go anywhere for the closing. She said that Freddie Mac does everything online through my.loop account and that was one of those things that just made my day. Since it was a Freddie Mac home, the way they do it is everything online. So you see, the government isn’t all that bad. Sometimes the government just hits the mark. Now once I’ve signed all the documents for the closing from my.loop account, I will wire transfer the check-in.
I made the title in this post the calm before the storm because did you ever notice when a storm is brewing up outside, the sky is black, and you know it’s raining really bad somewhere else but you’re standing outside and its extremely calm. Then after the calmness, the storm hits. And if you haven’t put away your pool chairs, your pool toys, closed your shed door, checked all the windows in your home and the storm hits all hell is going to break loose.
I woke up this morning, and I feel like today is my calm before the storm. So I got up about 7:30 AM, made the beds, did my usual sweeping of all the floors, cleaned one bathroom as I generally do I made myself a coffee. It’s going to be 87° today and I picked up some steaks from Gilliands yesterday and Lexie has indicated to me that she is coming by with my grandson to swim for the day. My storm couldn’t get any more calmer before flipping a home than spending the day with those two. I took the liberty of buying some water bomb balloons the other day and went into my garage early this morning to fill them up for Kellan. I’m going to attach a video of my idea of the calm before the storm! I sent my grandson a video about which ones are mine and which ones belong to him to throw at Nina, and I’m certain he will not be happy with my choice but it is what it is . 😂💁😛
Today is officially my calm before the storm .
