Wow, what a rushed two weeks....I need a breather and to slow down some. Whoever said retirement was so boring must have had no life at all! I am much busier than when I was working full time...LOL!
We hit a snafu with the lending company over a Texas Law that their lawyer had a really weird interpretation of regarding cashing out...WHATEVER...the loan manager found another lender that interpreted the law as it was written and passed so....we had to start all over with new forms signed....etc! All is done and in process again, the survey has been completed, now we have to have an appraisal, that should be the end of all the requests other than fulfilling the escrow accounts. Whew! buying a home (or buying out a co-owner's interest, in this case) is a long and tiring process! I hope it all is completed soon and things get back to somewhat normal around here....ROFL!
I also did some graphics work for my CPA's Naval Reunion later this month, that was fun, but a very tedious job and finished all requirements and turned over to him yesterday. He seemed very pleased with the results!
I had a girl friend come and spend a couple of days with me that took a little of my time too, we did a couple of things together and cooked and chatted until the wee hours catching up! That is always fun!
We had a cold front come in early this morning with a few little showers and dropping the humidity and temps a little bit, so I turned off all my overhead fans and dusted all of them, what a mess that makes. Then I vacuumed and wet mopped the whole house, all the laundry is caught up, cleaned the litter boxes and started fresh with them and even planted some mums around my mailbox. Now I can enjoy this lovely weekend that is approaching. Yesterday we broke records with the heat at 103 degrees with the humidity it felt like 108 and today it didn't reach 90, but with the humidity down it feels so cool. Tomorrow is supposed to bring more showers (yeah, we need them so badly) and cooler temperatures for the whole weekend in the upper 70's to low 80's! So, so, so happy to see that and no humidity. That has been simply awful this summer or I have really been super sensitive to it!
I haven't had much time for the internet, no Facebook, no games, no blogging and no designing (for me anyhow), but I did manage a quick page to post on Facebook on the 9th for Annabeth's first birthday. Can you believe it? Already a year old and is weighing in at 22 1/2 pounds. She surely is a cutie pie. Wish I could go for a visit, but...too busy and must be here for this real estate deal. Just look at her in this page I got from Fecnikek.
I had started putting together another double page of my sisters with their grandbabies, so I finished that today and thought I would post it too. The QP is called Because of You by Booland Designs. You can see I titled the pages Because of You..(the of is split between the two and should look good when I have the book printed.
Hugs to all! Mat
