Jeffs Reviews

I review computer hardware and software, consumer electronics, kitchen gadgets and tools. Almost all I know about computers comes from hands on learning on the internet on my own, no classes or college in computers. I have built a few computers on my own and do all the work for all the reviews I write, contacting the companies myself and asking for things I am interested in purchasing myself. I work hard to bring you my opinions of the things I review and hope you enjoy my writing.

Continuing to wait

We are still waiting on some paperwork, apparently the seller cannot find the power of attorney or some such.

While this would be no big deal we are a bit mad as Michele had taken a week off of work, vacation, that has mostly gone to waste. Two of the days we sat around and did a little packing and cleaning here but Michele did get to go back to work for a few days. The problem is that when we do close she will not be able to take vacation as she works at a daycare and scheduling days off is a bit tricky. She is in charge of her room and to take days off they need to find a replacement which can sometimes be difficult for the admin so she will probably not get to take as many days off as we would have liked.

This kind of makes moving in more difficult but it also is taking away from a lot of the fun as we wanted to do this together and now it's going to mostly be me and the kids moving stuff with her pitching in after work.

I really wish the seller/realtor had not told us we had a closing date when they were not completely ready, that way we would not have wasted vacation time.

This is just one word of warning to potential buyers out there looking at buying a home, make sure there is clear communication and let the sellers agent know you want a definite closing date and that they have all their ducks in a row before taking days off from work.

Woops, a few days delay.

Our closing is being delayed a couple of days while some paperwork goes across the state for a couple of signatures. We should be closing Wednesday or Thursday.

Until then its wait.

Closing Day and other nonsense

Today we close, well tomorrow but that is only a few hours away. We will have a late closing as there are still a couple of things that need to get figured by the powers that be and those lower ones like appraisers. After all that gets figured out we will go to close and the house will finally be ours. I will post a bunch of decent pictures on my website as soon as we get some tomorrow.

I saw this on PC World and it is so appropriate:

Law 1: Fix a computer for a friend or family member, and you'll be tech support for life. --Danny Allen, PC World

I just love these Tech SUpport rules.

There's a bunch more but this one I find especially true.

Have a great week, mine will be the busiest of my life.
