Their is no place.....

This is for April - May/June/July add 200,000 to listing price in
certain areas - then proceed to add another 166,000 or so for over bidding on the
list price - OH yah and did I fail to mention that most of these a**holes make cash offers? Did
I also mention that some of these house are literally dumps and need a shitload of updating even before you move in?  

like....Holy shit we actually found a house and WTF I will never be able to shop for a handbag EVa again......We are currently in escrow and praying to the casa gods that the appraisal  comes through in our favor. This house has already fallen through escrow with a previous buyer becasue some nut job at the bank decided to use and out of state friggin appraiser....  Mmmmm...... HELLO anyone out of the of Northern California area or perhaps Manhattan does not understand how much over asking some of these dump houses are going for. In some cases we were in bidding wars with folks who in some cases over bid by 200,000 thousand dollars and we are talking about 1,500 square feet people...not 4,000....1,500 square motherf*ckin feet. I am emotionally, physically and mentally spent. Hubby and I have bickered more in the last 2 months than we have in our whole 14 plus years together. Home buying is stressful enough you add the volatile market we are in and you might as well hook and IV of wine to my arm. So now we are playing the waiting game, financing is good now it is all up to the appraiser.

I have started getting stuff ready for the move getting rid of stuff we no longer need. I have an awful lot of planting and reorganizing to do. I have a photographer coming this week to take pics of the old home front then we have a brokers open sometime next week. Then a couple of open houses.  So I have been running around like a bat out of hell. I have had GG home for the last week because her classroom had a lice victim, as soon as I found out about that I pulled her ass out of class for 7 days. YES extreme but all I needed to add to this crazy mix was lice and I would have jumped off the cliff.  I guess lice is common in school I however am a little OCD and having something like that around me would freak me out. I mean my dogs have never even had fleas! I guess all the preventative work I have been doing for the last 2 months has worked. I ordered preventive shampoo and tea tree oil as soon as I heard the word lice a few months ago from one of the teachers.   I am itching just blogging about this right now. NEXT

They also say when it rains it pours. GG has been super busy with go sees for her modeling she has another one today { a big one} so keep fingers crossed. Believe it or not she really enjoys it and I told her when she no longer wants to do it we can stop. But so far the little fashionista as she has been nicknamed at preschool is loving it and all she is going to make will be headed to her college fund....except for a few bucks that I promised her for her favorite place the dollar store//!?! It is exciting closing a chapter and starting a whole brand new one - I am ready for the change....Marin county was a great pit stop met some really great and fantastic people  and some I just soon enough forget.

Watched out for some future fantastic posts on the HELL which is moving {hopefully}
