Nutshell Recap

It's 2am and I'm wide awake.

It looks like Yew Nork Babe is finally moving. Relax, have a seat and let me explain, in a nutshell, what has been happening.

There were some mistakes made, legal mistakes, when it came to the sale of my house. These legal mistakes were made by the legal firm that I work for, the place I've worked for the past 11 years.

I had to hire another lawyer to fix these problems. It took $10,750 to fix the problems, money that I just don't have. Yet, if I didn't have the problems fixed, the sellers of the house I am purchasing would be suing me, or at the least, keeping the downpayment. And that's not a good thing either.

The closing on my house on Long Island is scheduled for Friday. This Friday.

The packing can imagine. (If that sentence sounds like it is spoken by an elderly Jewish mother, it just was.) I've lived in this huge house since 1992.

There isn't much more to do, I have given many things to my children, they are all out of the house and there are only about 20 boxes of their stuff that I have to bring with me on my move to CT....most of which is my daughter's artwork.

The movers are coming tomorrow morning, they will be storing all of my things in a warehouse in New Jersey for a week, then delivering it all to CT on Thursday, May 10th....I only hope.

As for my job, I was planning on staying with my sister on Long Island during the week and spending weekends at the new house until my boss retired. Now I don't feel that is the right thing to do...the way my real estate matter was handled has convinced me that it's time to leave there, now.

I have an interview with a head hunter from CT and will be planning to work somewhere in CT.

There are many, many changes going on in my life right now, more than I had wanted because I am the type of person that likes routine and consistancy.

Yet, I'm smart enough to realize that if I keep living here on Long Island for much longer, I will not survive financially. Most homeowners here have two income families. Long Island is one of the most expensive places to live. Not only that, but the stress here is sucking the life out of me.

So I'm trusting that the closing on my house here goes through on Friday since my house will be empty tomorrow and living in an empty house will freak me out. And with the market the way it is, I'd be living here for another year and losing more money.

And I'm trusting that the purchase of the house in CT will go as scheduled too, since I'll be homeless for a week, although living with my sister.


Thanks for stopping by to check in on me, I have to go back to sleeping right now to finish this awesome dream I was having about zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I really think that real estate transactions can be some of the most stressful things in life. It's too bad that some of the chaos was caused by people you trusted. I'm sorry you've had to experience all this, and I truly hope that the rest of the process goes smoothly for you.

That is amazing that your own employer treated you badly. I hope your new life in CT will be everything you want and need it to be!

Oh boy that's horrible. I pray that nothing else goes wrong and it all works out for you. Praying you get some rest to for the big move.
