Gonna make this short, well as short as I can with a long story. We are exhausted and stressed.
Left Maryland this morning at 7 with the granddaughters with us. Stopped at our favorite C -Store WaWa for coffee and breakfast for the 4 of us. Got to daughter Terri's house a little after 9. Needing a haircut, I called my friend here who cuts our hair. No answer. Will take care of that tomorrow as she returned my call a short time later.
We left house at 10:20 and drove 30+ miles to the water testing company. This time everything passed. We drove 35 miles to the County Health Department for the certificate. They refused. They wanted the original papers from last week when the test failed. I called Terri who had the papers with her at work in Philadelphia, 50 miles away. So Len called the water company and they would make new "originals". So 35 miles back to water test company and back to health department. Health department said papers would be ready at 3:30, to come back AGAIN!
By this time it was 1:15. We were to meet Mortgage Broker at the house at 1:30. Needed the transfer of deed signed and notarized. Got to the house 1:35. Len had appointment to see doctor at 2:15 to get his blood pressure meds renewed. By this time his blood pressure must have been through the roof.
I left him at house with girls and the broker and I rushed 3 miles to my old company. My old boss there is a notary. Got papers signed and notarized and came back to the house. Len had left for doctors as Terri had gotten home and was with the girls.
Len stayted at doctors office until one hour after his appointment, got disgusted and told them he had to leave. Made appointment for tomorrow morning. Just as well, by this time his pressure must have been boiling. He went to the Health Department and got the certificate.
Now tomorrow morning we have to take all paperwork to our Municipal building to get the CO. Settlement is tomorrow afternoon. We don't need to go, just Terri. Broker took our voided check to deposit funds into our account. So this is really our last night in OUR house. Tomorrow it is all Terri's.
Girls in bed, Len is taking a shower. I'm next in line.
And another thanks to Donna and Sam. They have taken a lot of stress from us by giving us a place to park the rig and taking such good care of Lucky.
