Well, We are here safe and sound. We did close on the house on Friday just like we were suppose to, however, as life goes, not everything goes as planned when you have so many people involved.
We arrived at 9am to do the paperwork as planned; however, Nevada has a rule, it doesn’t matter if you have signed all the paperwork and all the money has been exchanged, if it hasn’t been filed at the courthouse you don’t get a key. So, the company who files the paperwork only does it at 2pm everyday. I would guess they have a runner who goes every day at 2pm . The problem with ours though is the the old owners didn’t sign the deed so nothing got filed and we didn’t get a key. So on Monday at 2pm the runner will run the paperwork down again.
Of course, we hadn’t planned for it so we went hunting for a hotel that would take 5 people, a dog and a cat.
So we have spent the weekend having fun doing the tourist thing. Saw the Hoover Dam and swam in Lake Mead.
Hopefully today we will get the key, we have scheduled the household goods to arrive on Thursday. It is all coming together slowly but surely, and as I said in the beginning, LIFE IS GOOD.
Scott and the kids went to Red Rock Canyon for a hike, my ankel isn’t quite up to par yet so I have been hanging out here at the pool reading a book. I just came in because the sun started to shine on the pool directly and it started to warm up.
Oh, and I have to say, I am very excited. I haven’t lived in a place with a Sonic since I left Oklahoma, For those non-Okies its a drive-in kinda like the old A&W’s To my surprise there are 26 Sonics in Las Vegas, including one just down the road from my motel.
So while Scott and the kids were gone today I went and got my first Cherry Lime Slushy in almost 7 years!!!
LIFE IS REALLY GOOD!
