I brought my packaged cat in with me. The other day I bought a cool looking bag that holds the cat and looks like just a slick bag that I might be carrying around. However, I told Shannon, the escrow officer, that there was a cat in there. She said "Bring him on into my office and I'll close the door so you can let him out." Which she did, after getting him a dish of water. Bullet prowled the office while I signed papers.
I asked when I could move in. She said not until the loan is funded. The papers have to go to Michigan and then they send the money here. She made some calls and sped it up as much as possible. It looks like it should be done by Friday. She had to fax the promissory note and then send the papers by UPS and we hope for the best. Which is why I am now at the Nautical Bean, free wi-fi, where I just made a reservation for two days at the motel 6 here in town. If you make a reservation online you can usually get a discount so that's what I did.
And I haven't even been to the house yet! I am going to stop by the motel, get my room, install the beastie, then I will go over there to see if I can get inside.
