Well, everything happens really fast.

1. I got my new glasses and my new phone in one day. Locked and loaded. OK maybe not loaded, that's alot of phone #s to put in by hand. The phone doesn't look as much like a toilet lid in person.

2. Canasta/grilling night chez judithiscariot rocked. Awesomely. I was v. happy. Sadly, no full game was finished. Scored like 4 platefuls of pasta salad. Yum.

3. Interviewer caught up with me, but we still don't have a time. Eek. Lots of driving in my very near future.

4. We decided to put a bid in on a house in Laurel. Holy. Shit. Earlier than we expected, and we probably won't win. It will either be an amazing coup or an important learning experience.

5. Been asked to account for all my time at work to try to justify more headcount. It's really an amazing exercise.

Wow, that's a lot of stuff. Good luck on the house! What are you interviewing for?

It's another NOC tech position at a Big ISP. I never mention names on LJ. :)

Oooo the cool one by Main Street? So you went and looked at it?! Fingers crossed. :-) Did you go with Annmarie or Tricia? Ok so I'm full of questions, this is exciting.

Yes, the one in historic laurel... the first one. I went over with Annmarie yesterday and Jack went today. I'm very excited but trepidatious... I'm scared to see the bidding go up... eek!

Hopefully the house thing will be a learning experience. The first few times should be. Our first bid was 'ignored' into oblivion. But we ended up with the perfect house anyway. It will happen for you too.

Thank you for the words of encouragement :)

I second that. We were way outbid on the first place we bid on, but it helped us learn about the whole process. We got the second place. Although it was still scary. I remember our realtor calling to tell me we got it, and me saying "Great! How much did we pay?" because we had an escalation clause. Good luck!!

Oh god, this sounds worse than eBay...

House bid?! That rocks!
Jun. 30th, 2004 12:28 pm (UTC)
And is scary! I should know if it was accepted in a few hours. *clenchy tummy*

Good Luck!
Waiting for the offer was the worst part of buying a house. I think I didn't sleep at all between when we put in offers and when we got replies.

Re: Good Luck!
Oy, tell me about it. I know tirani didn't sleep till the contract was back in our hands signed. Wasn't any piece of cake for me either. But I learned there isn't anything that can be done about it, so it's better to try to relax and just let it happen. In the end, everything worked out for the best.

When you're the buyer, you can walk away any time you don't like what's going on. Even at closing, you can still walk out if you get cold feet. Just remember, right now, the buyer is still the driving force.

Re: Good Luck!
I think you're psychic, because I sure as hell didn't sleep much last night!!! :) Still no answer...

Wow, everyone's life is on fast-forward these days. Congrats, whichever way it goes, and good luck with it and may you learn a lot (most of it good).
