Campground – Day 32

Warm start today at 60° with light rain. Heavier rain and cooler temps are on the way for later today and through the weekend, mainly the cooler temps. I need to go get the propane tanks filled again today as I’ll be needing heat in the coming days.
Other than working and a gloomy day, I’ll be waiting for any sign that the title company received the info they need.

Campground – Day 31

Once again, no sleep, only about 2 hours. Not sure what the problem is, maybe all the shit swirling in my head, or the complete lack of doing anything, I just don’t know. I do know one thing, if I don’t get some fucking sleep soon I’m doing to just drop.
It’s warmer this morning, in the low 50s with a forecast of party cloudy skies and highs in the low 70s. This looks like the last day for quite a while where we’ll reach 70°, as the temps drop back down to the 50s for the rest of the week.
I have to hunt/call around for different home owners insurance today. The fucktwats at Allstate don’t want to insure the out building. They say it doesn’t look in good shape and the guy I talked with said he thinks it looks like it should be torn down. What a fucking asshole! He has no fucking clue how great of shape it is in. Sure, it might need some paint, but other than that it’s in great shape. Allstate says they can’t exclude the building so they will be canceling my policy. Fucking assholes! I’m going to call a couple local places this morning. Oh, and the thing is, is they didn’t call to tell me until after 5:00 PM Friday. Again, Fucktwat Assholes!

I stressed myself out for nothing this morning. I called a local insurance office first thing this morning. Easy peasy insurance. Now the house and car are insured with a different company, and for quite a bit less money. I’m so use to doing everything online, I really didn’t think about calling local.
On another note… I talked the fees manager with my loan company and he’s going to remove a good chunk of the fees that are/would be due at closing.

More…

Looks like I should be out of this campground Monday. We should be closing on Friday as long as the title company gets the info they need from the sellers’ sellers’ mortgage company. They need the payoff amount and their mortgage company is dragging their feet.
I agreed to stay here over the weekend so they can load up their Uhaul over the weekend. I guess they have something like 20 people coming over to help.
Now, I have to see if I can get anyone to help me move from the storage unit to the house. Most I can do, but the really heavy stuff I need help with.

Campground Day 30

A month, a whole fucking month I’ve been here. Time flies when you’re having fun…NOT.
Once again I was awake way too early, about 1:00 AM, but at least I was able to go back to sleep after a couple hours.
Today looks like a cool, drizzly and windy day, with temps in the high 40s and patchy drizzle. I was thinking of going for another drive, but it’s really gloomy out and can’t even see across the bay. We’ll see if it gets any better out. Other wise, maybe just watch a movie or two.

Did nothing today, with the exception of a nap. Maybe I’ll watch a movie this evening, I heard Hereditary is quite good.

Campground – Day 29

Awake at 1:30 AM with sharp pains in my head. It feels like a long needle being pushed through my brain. Oh well, doesn’t really matter, it’s not like anyone gives a shit anyway.
I saw on Facebook from NWS’s webcam the northern lights were out at about 12:30 AM, I went out and looked, nothing now.
It’s suppose to be a really nice day today, what to do? Oh, that’s right, not a fucking thing. Maybe go for a drive, I don’t know, maybe just sleep.

Continued…

Well I did end up going for a drive today, and discovered new areas/lakes. I drove out Pike Lake Rd., followed that and turned on each side road that went to a lake. Pike Lake Rd. comes starts at M-38 and meanders to M-26 near Twin Lakes State Park. Once on M-26, I just headed back up to Houghton and then to the camper.
Fall colors are starting, but only in a few spots and areas. There was about 50-60% around Toivola, but most of the trip there was just spots here and there with color.
Anyway, it was good to get out, even if it was just for a little while. I need to do it more, it helps me forget all the shit that’s going on.
Following are photos from the drive.

The start of Pike Lake, sort of a swamp.

Clear Lake. This was a really nice spot, high on a ridge over looking the lake.

Campground – Day 28

Not much to say, just waiting for any info on how the title company is coming along with the sellers’ shit.
This is a holiday for me at work, and I was thinking of going up along the Keweenaw shore to check out the waves, as the winds are blowing big time here with lots of lake effect rain showers. The problem is, I have to be available for a phone call, so I really can’t be gone. So fuck that, just like about everything else.

Continued…

Turned out to be a beautiful evening with partly cloudy skies and a nice sunset. I was thinking of getting some photos of the bay, but I couldn’t be bothered to walking the few feet to the shore. My head is in a real funk again, and with no-one but my own head to talk to, it’s not getting any better.

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…

Nothing, fucking nothing. I emailed my lender today and she said they are waiting on the title company about payoffs and all the information from the sellers and their sellers, I guess. It’s turning into a clusterfuck.
I could buy another place, but I’m staying in the current sellers’ camper. I’m fucking stuck. I keep asking myself why I didn’t just fucking end it all months ago when I was really close to doing it.

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.

Continued…

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.
