sometimes it's better to procrastinate.......


our front room is a frame shop

our bedroom is a produce department

We've been living in a produce department since the 16th WAITING to move into the house.
(our stuff is all packed in banana and apple boxes....the ethylene smell is starting to reside finally)

this is the latest excuse for why we cant move in (from the real estate guy)

Hi Richard & Nicole,

Here’s the latest from the listing agent. We are trying to find out if there’s any possibility of closing before the sidewalk has been completed, but it’s not likely. I’ll let you know what I find out. I appreciate your patience…hang in there, we are almost there!

We were FINALLY able to secure a city permit 30 minutes ago for sidewalk. Sidewalk will be torn up and forms built Friday, It will then be re-inspected with pour on Monday. Please know that I realize this has created hardship for your buyer but the city permit process and change of contractor really slowed us down. I have made sure the contractor has stood on standby and available the moment the permit came through and have put on the pressure with multiple calls daily.

I will e-mail you invoices the moment I have them. Please know that getting this done is my highest priority this week.

Bummmmmmereeerrrr!!!! I wonder if all of your stuff will smell like apple bannana for a while? At least it will be a huge relief when you do get into the house.

I think you could change the title of your post to "Often it is better to procrastinate..."
