I spent most of the day researching mortgage rates, filling out forms online, talking to various ‘mortgage specialists’ and getting most of an application done with the company I think we’ll end up getting our loan with. Within there I also completed and mailed out Mother’s Day cards for my grandmas (I hope they get there on time!) and went to Costco, primarily for milk. Imagine my dismay when they were out of organic milk. Well, they weren’t out. But they have apparently arranged their refrigerated stock such that when they’ve run out of organic milk by 2:30 in the afternoon, they have no way to replenish the stock until the store closes. Nice. Oh, Lane and I also planted some flower seeds in the ‘garden’ here, just to see if we can get them to grow into the lush little flowers promised on the outside of the seed packet. I am skeptical.
I have shifted into parenting survival mode. This mortgage application stuff is not my cuppa tea.
Luckily I had the forethought to buy a couple slices of pizza at Costco before we left. Lane and I shared one for lunch when we got home (yeah, lunch at 3:30… but we had a late breakfast and a snack around 1:00). Then I just shared the second one, cold, with the kids. And not even cut up nicely… I ripped off a piece for Jake and he walked around noshing on it, and Lane got the remains of the piece after I was done eating off of it. I’m such an awesome mom some days.
Hopefully after a little while of not thinking about rates and points and origination fees and title searches and bank statements I can regain my brain. Fingers crossed!
