Campground – Day 27

I can’t believe I’ve been here for almost a month, 27 long and boring days. Weather isn’t too bad (yet) this morning, temp around 55° and overcast. The forecast is for some pretty heavy rain later today and tonight.
Another day of waiting is in store for mortgage stuff. It should have been wrapped up yesterday or the day before, but no, the sellers fucked up with the title company. I just hope they truly have sorted things out. As the shit hit yesterday, I jumped online again to look at other places, but there just isn’t much, and what there is, or was, has already sold or is pending.

To be continued…

Campground – Day 26

Up at fucking 1:00 AM this morning, had coffee, a couple smokes, went for a shower, and now back sitting down. I should be able to squeeze in a nap before it’s time for work.
As of about 4:00 AM it’s a refreshing 48° with cloudy skies.
I should get most all the final stuff for the mortgage today. I thought yesterday, but they had to wait for the final fee confirmation from the title company. Wish I could say I was excited, but I’m not. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be so glad to be into a house again, but I’m just not excited about the house or property. I guess we’ll see how it goes once I start working on the place, I have a few ideas on some things to change. I’m sure the boys will be happy to have room to move around again, inside and out.

To be continued…

One more, hopefully last, hurtle. The sellers never notified the title company they were selling, but that’s not the worst part. With the house I’m buying, the sellers are paying for it through a land contract, that’s not a problem, but the person they have the land contract with still has a mortgage on the house…That’s the fucking problem. The sellers say they have it sorted out with the title company now. I sure as hell hope so. What the fuck?!?!

Campground – Day 25

Much cooler this morning, about 50° with cloudy skies. It’s forecast to get up to around 60° today and stay mostly cloudy. The cooler night helped me sleep a little, though I still only got about 4 hours of sleep. I might make a run to my storage unit today to get a couple warmer shirts. About the only clothing I can get to is a couple bags of jackets, and I’m hoping there are a shirt jacket or two in one of the bags. All my other clothes are tossed high in the back. I wasn’t planning on staying in this camper this long as we should have closed by now, but there were snags. At least those are all done with, or they fucking better be, so we should be closing soon.


Light at the end of the tunnel. My loan got locked in today, and we should close next week. Now to figure out how the move is going to work because the sellers are still there waiting just as I have. I hope they’re ready.

Campground – Day 24

Twenty Four Fucking Days. Not a good start today, it’s 70° and humid. Also, I seem to be over heated and can’t cool down, I sweating like mad. Sometime today I need to swap out 2 empty propane tanks for full ones, going to need them with the cooler weather coming. Then, near the end of the day I move again to a different site. Wish I didn’t have to move, this site is great for the dogs and quite private.

Quick update… The seller called about 8:00 AM and said, “I hear you have to move, I’ll be there in about an hour”. So anyway, I’m moved to the new campsite much earlier than I thought.


Nothing else really went on today, was fairly busy at work though.
There is more road noise at this site, but I have a nice view for sunrises over the bay. I also ran and got two fresh tank of propane during lunch for the coming cooler weather that’s forecast to start tomorrow.
No word from my lender yet today, though sometimes he does email late into the evening. If I don’t hear anything today, I’ll shooting him an email tomorrow to check in. We need this done and over with.

Campground – Day 23

One last hot and humid day in store here. Woke up to cloudy, maybe foggy, skies and a temp of 65°. It’s forecast it clear up later. Later today, if most these people leave early enough, I plan to scope out a new site to move to tomorrow. I should also go get the propane tanks filled, as next week it will be much cooler at night and I might want a little heat in the mornings. Other than that, just another day of doing nothing.
On a different note – I haven’t slept in my bed in about 6 weeks. Part of that time was due to Grizwald not being able to get up the steps to the bedroom, but most is being in this damn camper.
Also, I wish I would get a phone call to talk.

Not having a good day at all, not like any of my days are good, but this one seems much worse. I keep breaking down and crying. Trying to keep a little busy by cleaning up, but it’s not helping at all. I feel like I want everything to end, everything.


Another $300 down the tube. Just got my next campsite to be moved into later tomorrow. I just hope that we can close on the house before this site runs out of time and I have to move again. We should be able to close before that, at least that’s the way it sounds.
My mental state is going down hill fast staying here, and I’m not sure what to do about it, if anything.

Campground – Day 22

It’s the weekend, but as I’ve said before, while I’m here, weekends suck. Another warm night and morning with a temp of 65°, but it looks like there might be some rain coming in, we’ll see.
Other than that, it’s just another day of sitting around.


Pretty much a do nothing day, as are most while staying here. I did make a run into Houghton to go to Walmart for some tee-shirts, socks and underwear. The reason for getting those items is due to me still not getting any laundry done. I hate laundromats!
This campground is a zoo with kids this evening. People are even parking across the road at the roadside park. They are all coming here for trick-or-treat during the campground’s Harvest Festival. Tomorrow the place should empty out, and then I’ll go to the other end to have a look at another site to move to. I have to move Monday, they are closing down this end of the campground for the season.

Campground – Day 21

Another warm night with lows only reaching around 65° and clear skies. I was up around 2:00 AM. The campground is filling up for the weekend and for the campground’s Harvest Festival.
I really, really hope to hear something from my lender today about a closing date. I’m running out of time here and need to get moving. The sellers are in the same circumstance.


This fucking place is packed, packed with kids. :/ They are all here for the campground’s harvest festival.
Heard a little from my lender about the house today. –  “I just spoke with the appraisal company and they said the final inspection was received today and it is now in quality review. We should receive a copy by Monday. The file will then go back to the underwriter for clear to close review.”
This house shit can’t come to an end soon enough. It could have been done a couple weeks ago if it weren’t for the place being a manufactured home with all the extra shit involved because of that.

Campground – Day 20

Twenty fucking days in this fucking campground and camper. Weather is warm, 60°, and humid with sunny skies.
Grizwald had a tough morning getting out of the camper. I always have to help him, but this morning was harder on him. The smooth hard flooring wouldn’t allow him to get a grip to stand up to get out the door. We have to get the fuck out of here!

Nothing really much else for the rest of the day. Grizwald continued to have a hard day. I’m sure being in this fucking cramped camper doesn’t help. My back is fucked due to having no place to sit, or sleep, comfortably and having to lift Giz into the camper.
