Home buyers class

Well today we are heading to Portland for out 2 day long class on buying out first home. Wonder if they will teach us a trick for dealing with the frustration of waiting 5 months lol. We got a hotel in Portland so we don't have to drive down 2 days in a row. Kinda like a mini vaca.

Should have seen this coming.

Well like the title said...i should have seen this coming, it was all going so smoothly. Yesterday morning we received a call from the realtor who said that someone in this whole process found out that there is another problem with the title on the house. I don't remember the details but its something to do with a parcel of land from 40 yrs ago. As it stands now its doubtful that we will close on the date i posted. Who knows when it will be now, and I am starting to wonder if this isn't just a sign and we should walk away, I keep trying to tell myself that the best things are worth waiting for. It just depends on how long we have to wait.

Who knows what will happen now but I will keep this updated when I know more.

Another blog.

I have been doing some looking around and searching other websites for other bloggers like me. I am just looking for more people doing home improvements to see how they are doing them, maybe get some ideas/tips and so on. One I ran accross is Build my first home which is on the same ideas as mine. He has tons of pics of each phase of construction he is doing. If anyone is interested its worth checking out.

I was sent a referrals link to this service which is an online virtual computer. Weird concept but most are when they are new. This thing lets you emulate a desktop, some programs and a web browser. Most of the programs are link and things to other services online but this integrates it into your virtual computer. For example I added my user name and pass for Google Docs, and they showed up in a folder so I could edit them directly. I am still playing with it and if I notice anything more interesting I will be sure to post it. If you are interested in checking it out click the link below. By doing the referral below we both (i believe) will get an extra 5gig of space.
