Less Kvetching, Please
After several more days of playing games around the Final Check, the Buyers' attorney finally delivered the bank checks to our attorney this morning!
It's a relief to know that now I can pay our own builder, as well as all the materialmen and subcontractors we've paid deposits to.....I will no longer have nightmares at night about buying our apartment on the credit card!
I actually had that nightmare--I dreamed that the credit card bill came in the mail (which is impossible--we have it set up online) and I opened it, and the entire purchase price of the home was on the bill with a notation below it which said Due In 30 Days Net.
I sat straight up in bed at 0130 in the morning! Could NOT get back to sleep after that one. I went and read in the living room until 5:00 am.
Then today, we found out a friend's mother died; another friend's grandmother fell and broke her hip, which at her age is deadly--she's in the hospital; and another friend may need a serious operation.
Every once in a while, as I'm running around going crazy over finances, house-deals, medical stuff, ulpan and life generally, I have a day like today where out of the blue I hear about other people's problems which are far more heartbreaking and important than anything I'm kvetching about.......it's a gentle slap from H"S, reminding me that the world is really NOT about me; that on this beautiful Fall day, maybe I should just shut up and enjoy the scenery and be grateful for where I am and what I have.
Consider it done, Boss.
