I just got off the phone with the bank. They funded my home loan yesterday. THE HOUSE IS MINE!!!
I’ll still be glad to get the deed, though (or whatever they give you when you get a mortgage).
You may remember from my I lost my job thread that I was stressing mightily over this. Would they call one more time to verify my employment? And I was stressing before that because some work needed to be done before they would fund the loan, and I was worried that I’d be laid off before it was done.
Well, now I’m officially a mortgage payer.
In other news…
I had an interview this morning at the company that laid me off. The interview went well. I met with two managers, each of whom have a position open. Will I get re-hired? I don’t know. I thought my performance was convincing. If I’m re-hired, then I can finish paying off the new Yamaha, the restoration of the '666 MGB, and start saving up for a garage. If I’m not re-hired, then I have a place to move to. Sweet.
(I also asked about other positions that may be open within the company, and gave the information to a couple of other guys who were laid off.)
I’m feeling much better now.
