I flew up to Virginia on Thursday morning, met my dad and the moving trailer at the airport, packed up my apartment in two hours, hugged some friends' necks, grabbed dinner and hit the road. We stopped in Charlotte to spend the night and then made the rest of the trip to Atlanta on Friday morning.
Then, Friday around noon, I get a call saying that my closing may be postponed and that I owe an additional big chunk of money at closing that I was not aware of. (Buying a house makes you broker than you ever thought possible, by the way).
Realtor: (Noon): "Your closing may be postponed."
B: "I have to close today -- please do everything you can to help. This is the only day my daddy can help me move in."
Broker: "Brittney, I will be there at 3, so you be there, too."
I get dropped off at the airport to pick up my car and I head to attorney's office to close at 3:00. Meanwhile, my dad is waiting for me at my house.
2:45 : Realtor calls: "Brittney, the attorney is not ready. There is one document that has not been signed and it won't happen today because he is hunting in the woods. We will hopefully shoot for Tuesday."
B: "ONE DOCUMENT??!?!?!!? ONE DOCUMENT?!?!?!?"
I made a U-turn and headed to my grandparent's house, called my dad and told him to head back to Alabama since I won't be moving in that night and then .....
I lost it.
I broke down sobbing. All the stress of this year, all the heartache, all the craziness... I thought I was finally getting to the end of the tunnel Friday night, but it didn't happen. The cancelled wedding, the 6-month job hunt, the move, the car breaking down, the car accident, finding a house to buy, moving out of Virginia completely..... it has just been too much to emotionally handle. I hit pretty low yesterday and just cried out to God to help me. Yes, so many great positive things have happened the last month that I am so so so thankful for, but I am still not out of the woods yet. My belongings are sitting on a moving truck in a friend's driveway.
I tweeted yesterday that I #hate2010. I really do. I will be partying like a rockstar New Years Eve bringing in 2011... wiping the dirt and the grime of 2010 off my body and erasing it from my mind.
On a lighter note, this combo is amazing. Target carries both!
I chose my downstairs paint colors! The blue will be the living room color and I still cannot decide between the other two for the kitchen/dining room color!
