No news yet.  I have this feeling of dread, and can’t  place it with anyathing definite.  Probably the condo.  Feeling a bit sorry for myself.  I just hate this feeling of being abused (by the bank), and the loss of money involved.


Hubby couldn’t get a suit without trying it on, but, you or yours might.

Condo Buzz

I’m sorry, I don’t have any great buys or freebies for you (yet), but I have buzz. My real estate agent called me again.  This time he told me the bank wouldn’t accept my offer of $7000 additional dollars and wanted way more within 24 hours or they were pulling out.  I never made that offer.  I’m really thinking that someone was showing the condo after I went to contract, and got a better offer.  That’s illegal, but I can’t prove it.   Otherwise, where did he get that figure?  Certainly not from me.  That bid would bring it over appraised value.  No way.  I may be cutting off my nose to spite my face, but I’m mad as hell.

Have a pleasant weekend, and stay warm.

Nothing more from my laweyer, which pretty much puts my life on hold. I’ll be patient.    A friend who works with lawyers told me that that real estate agents do this kind of thing to get things moving, not the banks.  Not ready to give Wells Fargo an apology yet.  We shall see.  I sure could use that truck in all this snow.  I think perhaps now that I may not be moving, I’ll start packing.  Just in case………or not.  Perhaps I’ll find a place with gas stoves.  It was a real compromise for me to give that up.


This is from my friend George.  Remember it in September.

Gifts for the Teacher…..
On the first day of school, the children brought gifts for their teacher.
The florist’s son brought the teacher a bouquet of flowers.
The candy-store owner’s daughter gave the teacher a pretty box of candy.
Then the liquor-store owner’s son brought up a big, heavy box. The teacher lifted it up and noticed that it was leaking a little bit.. She touched a drop of the liquid with her finger and tasted it. “Is it wine?” she guessed. “No,” the boy replied. She tasted another drop and asked, ” Champagne ?. “No,” said the little boy…………..”It’s a puppy!”

I sent Hubby to work with an extra meal today, just in case he gets snowed in.  Beside his turkey & cheese, he got a container of my homemade chicken soup with lots of chicken and root veggies in it. Who has it worse than he does, huh?  I am just too over all this snow.  I NEED SUMMER!

My condo lawyer called yesterday afternoon.  Apparently all is not lost….yet. Seller’s lawyer is talking to bank.  They need it to go through as badly as I do, probably, considering my state of mine, moreso.   Sad, but I’m getting over moving, real fast.

Spoke to my lawyer yesterday afternoon.  She’s seeing what she can do, and will get back to me.  She’s really nice, and since I already paid her, I hope we get to finish business together.  The real estate agent keeps calling, wanting me to give him an answer.  I  told him to say nothing to the bank till I speak to the lawyer.  On the plus side, my mortgage broker said getting a car loan won’t effect my credit rating.

Last night I dreamed I was on a train with Steve Valentine and Ray-Ray, and I left my pocketbook on the train.  Man, if I didn’t have bad luck, I wouldn’t have any luck at all.



For the Long Islanders, Groupon http://www.groupon.com/r/uu992590is  is having a great (IMHO) deal today.  Two separate weeks worth of organic produce for $30 instead of the usual $79.  Organics are so expensive, I’m definitely ordering this.  It’s only for Long Island though.  I do think they have a Toronto branch.  You can check.

Haven’t spoken to my lawyer yet, but still seething about condo.  Well, if I can’t get a condo, I’ll get a truck.  I looked at a Tucson I liked, and will check out some more.  One of my daughter’s friends, the son I never had, is helping us find a goodie.  He found our Kia Sephia for us 8 years ago, and it was a steal.  Can’t wait to speak to lawyer though.  I’ll keep you posted. 


This looks like a great deal.
