Truck Ya!

We bought a truck, sold our house, hubs put in 2 week notice and kids started dental work. All the things I wanted to accomplish this week!  So go ahead and substitute the TR in Truck for an F cause that’s how this week feels!!!!

The house sold I can’t believe it actually happened, but not without headache up until the end. This buyers agent is just an incompetent person and at 15 min before our scheduled closing he wanted our lock box code to do a walk through. We were like dude your supposed to be at the lawyers office not the house, face palm!

Right after closing we went to look at a truck near by. It was everything we needed and didn’t have to drive 4 hrs out of state to get it, just 20 min down the road. It’s a Ford F-350 Dully crew cab long bed diesel, she is a beast. The seats are 1 long seat and you really could fit 4 small humans across each.

We bought the truck with a loan from a local credit union we were not members of. But $10 later I was and they granted us the loan, under 2%, ahh ya!  So we were able to keep the good rate cause the house most likely hadn’t showed up as sold yet. With a truck and an RV we no longer needed hubs job to obtain a loan for anything else so he put in his 2 weeks notice. I would had loved if that day they said see ya later. But they actually wanted him to stay until the end of the next month. That wasn’t gonna happen but he is riding out the 2 weeks as promised.

After that took girls to dental consult and dr. was way more optimistic then the first. At the next appt when he got in and got old filling out he said new decay was not as close to roots as X-ray showed so no mini root canal, yea!

In between all this we managed to go to 2 birthday parties and BabyLand General so it wasn’t  all work and no play!

The Universe is back on track and with these few but major things accomplished we can move on to all the other little  things that still need to be done before this journey can really begin. This week my goal is to secure sites from the 2 months after we exit out of North GA, wish me luck. So far it’s looking logistically trickier then I’d like.

Truck Truck Truck 

Switch out the Tr for an F, cause that how this week feels.

Roadblock after roadblock seems to be the consistent theme this week, especially with our truck hunt. We were all prepared to make a trip to a neighboring state to look at one and upon calling to doublecheck it was still there and we were told it was out for inspection with no known day to be due back. I never thought buying the truck would result in a bigger headache then the RV. House closing is next week, hubs can’t quit job until we have this truck cause banks need a house and or jobs to give out loans. It’s a never ending cycle and something has to give!!

We also ran into problems with our garbage company. We scheduled a pick-up of our old mattresses. You call the day before your pick up day and they will send a separate truck around to get them. Well my husband swung by the house several days after this was due to take place and they were all still there. I called to inquire and was told it was my fault for not reporting it right away so they could not send out another truck in time to get these mattresses taken away before new alleged house closing. Basically they are saying it’s our fault they missed our pick up, ain’t that some amazing logic?  So hubs and his dad went to haul them off to a dump and pay a fee.  Should we send the garbage company the bill?

And to top it all off the girls dentist appt didn’t go well and now they both have a few cavities and a possible additional dental work. Have to get initial consult from a different dentist and get the procedures done all before we no longer have said insurance.  It’s just too much and I’m over adulting this week, did it for 4 solo days with kids and I’m about to explode. Kids appointment and house closing are same day, send me all your spare juju stat!

Silver lining where are you when I need you?

Hoping next weeks post will be all about the house closing going well, buying a truck, hubs putting 2 weeks notice in and dental treatments all finished!!  If only I could fast forward 7 days!

Here is Elli giving no Trucks:)
