I am waiting for the check from my husband's IRA to arrive so we can show that in addition to the money I put in from my accounts we are fully funded for the 20% down payment. It is taking forever and our mortgage contingency is up on Friday. All of the remaining conditions on the loan approval center on showing that the money is there and showing the trail of how it got there. So frustrating and I am trying not to bite his head off for not pulling the trigger on it much sooner!!
Looking forward to the next week and a half to be done (successfully)!!

Figured I'd update on what I'm waiting on. I'm waiting to move in! We've been doing some remodeling and decided since we had 30 days to move out we would go ahead and paint, get carpets clean, and do some remodeling. We already got alot done and should move big stuff in next Tuesday! I can't wait. So glad my husband wouldn't let me give up. Even the freak out was worth it.

Yes celesteR I can not wait to be where you are!! Have you appd for any Cc?
I got a Lowe's CC. At first they only gave me $800 but I did what other's mentioned on the CC forum and called and asked for an increase. They immediately upped me to $5000. I'm waiting for it come in now.

That is great news!!
It's funny the things you get excited about. The day the seller signed her part of the closing papers the for sale sign disappeared for the yard. Or today I was bored and checked out Realtor.com and it showed the house as sold now. Those things are fun to see. Helps it sink in too that I really did buy a house! Sure didn't think I would ever be able too.

Happy Thursday everyone! May your documentation be solid, may your approvals be forthcoming.
Waiting today on clear to close! (And hoping and praying that we could still sign tomorrow!)

I am still waiting to hear from underwritting. Was sent to underwritting on Monday. Even though it isn't tied to a home yet (which is a good thing or I would be more stressed) I told myself I would not get anxious waiting. But ya now that it is 4 days later I am. Although I am trying to take the approach that No news is good news in that they havent asked for anything additional yet etc.
