The planet Mercury is out of retrograde and has gone direct again! YEA!

That means communication issues can straighten out, electronics can stop acting up, and legal snarls and unsnarl.

The sale of our house was supposed to close on the 1st get the money and be out by the 12th or the buyers charged US $150 a day till we moved out,
but due to them needing a paper from Wells Fargo saying it was paid and clear, we had to wait and wait and wait, and everyone kept asking when we were moving, my dialysis people, doctors, the buyers, the new apartment people, family and friends …
And of course we can’t do anything till we close and get the cash,
then we have to tell the apartment when we are coming, hire movers (We’ve been talking to them for weeks now), get the car in the shop to work on the transmission and AC, hire a rental car, tell dialysis when my last day here will be, call new dialysis clinic to set up treatments there, get the cat’s teeth fixed, pay off the old utlilties we didn’t pay last month thinking we would get paid on the 1st (we haven’t had running water since the 1st), get a new mattress for Bre (we aren’t taking our old one) get my hospital bed picked up and then call to get a new one in Sherman, buy a new couch, buy/rent a stackable washer and dryer,
Bre had called and called and called Wells Fargo, been told the sale of the house in 2006 was out of their current computer system, yes somehow did know it was cleared, BUT needed to get the notifications from some mysterious place and would take 24-48 hours, that was two weeks ago.
Bre talked to SO many different people, getting the run around. She had also been told that it took 24-72 hours, that it was being handled, that it had to go through there legal department so they wouldn’t be liable for anything the letter might say, the vice president of the company , if that was who she really was, said that she knew the woman who had the case and if she said it would be there this Friday, it would be there Friday, Mondy it STILL wasn’t there, then of course someone say “OH for them to get that it can take up to 30 days” “well why were we told we were to get it originally in 24-48 hours?” we don’t mind if we are told up front it takes a friggin month, but we someone says 2 days, someone somewhere had not got it together.

Today Mercury went direct, and lo and behold someone said they would send it before the day closed and by 3PM the sellers had the email saying the house was free and clear to close.
SO! got a friend from Jack In The Box (my fave pre-dialysis breakfast spot) who said she would come over Saturday and help bring boxes from the back 2 rooms, another friend Jeff is coming over Sunday to help box and pack, Monday we close on the house, and Wed we MOVE!!!!!

If anyone read all that, you are a HUGE masochist!
But you deserve a pat on the back.
Or a spank on the butt,
if you really are a masochist. 😀
