I have been hesitant to post any update on my house closing for fear of jinxing the closing. However, I feel it is something that I need to write about for my sanity. As it stands now, my closing is scheduled for Wednesday at 1130. I got the final approval from the underwriter on Friday and looks like everything is approved. So, provided any unforeseen circumstances, I should be a homeowner on Wednesday July 5, and moved in the following day.
This should be an exciting time in my life, unfortunately it is overshadowed by the health of my sweetheart in TX as her dad is in critical condition and has suffered several heart attacks and the prognosis is not good. My heart is conflicted and feel helpless as she is 12 hours away in another state and cannot be there for her during this difficult time. Part of me wants to postpone my closing and drive out there immediately. But since the closing has been extended, not sure I have a legal right to postpone the closing, as we have extended to the 10th or before. The closing has been scheduled for Wednesday and that does not give me enough time to get there and back. I know she would want me to go ahead with closing. But, I feel I need to be there for her.
The only thing I can do right now is to be there emotionally for her as I cannot be there physically for her. Nonetheless it doesn’t make it any easier.
