A quick update (and please don't feel you have to comment).
We are closing Friday. Bank wouldn't go with our plan of signing papers in two different locations. So closing wasn't possible for today.
When I talked to the title agent yesterday and when she asked when both hubby and me were going to be in the same place together, I said here in Prescott Friday, which is when we could sign the papers together. She said we would then be closing on Monday and we couldn't move in obviously until the closing date. Learned that you can take a house prepossession, but then the current home owners have to cover the house with their homeowner's insurance and most don't want to do that, etc., etc., etc., so that was not an option for us to move in earlier than closing date.
Sorry, side tracked a bit.
I was trying to figure out if we signed the papers Friday why would it be until Monday that we would close because if we signed the papers yesterday (Wednesday) we would close Wednesday. Then it dawned on me (wisdom from God from lots of prayers said). She needed the papers back to file whatever she had to file and she was ASSUMING we would send them overnight, which she wouldn't be able to do anything with until Monday when "business" opened again.
So I asked our realtor who asked the title agent if hubby drove the papers back down to Phoenix on Friday after we signed them, could we close on Friday and she said YES as long as he got them there to her noon-ish which is very doable because I then called my favorite banker and she assured me that not only is she working on Friday, but three other notaries are working on Friday so notarizing will not be a problem.
Our plan on Friday, 9 a.m. at the bank when they open (honestly we will be there at least 5 minutes early). We will take care of the signing, she'll notarize, hubby will drop me back home, which is on the way to the road he has to travel on to Phoenix, and he'll then continue on to Phoenix. Should be there around 11 to 11:30 if we guessed timing right.
He'll hand in the papers and he'll get the keys. He'll take the shuttle that runs between the airport with stops along the way (A/Z Shuttle for those in Arizona) back up to Prescott because he wants to drive my van down to Phoenix on Saturday when the movers come. My van is "iffy" and he doesn't want me driving it long distances. He'll leave his car in the garage of our new house. We'll haul his (yes) 11 guitars (I thought he had 12 at one time, must have gotten rid of one when I wasn't looking) because doesn't trust them to the movers, which I don't blame him.
So movers come Saturday 8 a.m., load up the truck, drive down to Phoenix, unpack the truck. They hope to be done by 4-ish.
Thank you for those who prayed, those who thought positive thoughts, those who crossed their fingers, all of you cared and it showed in your comments and I truly thank you for it.
When I got the text back from the realtor that yes if the papers were there by noon we could close that same day I cried (remember I always cry at anything and everything). Once again God did not let me down and he was faithful.
Thank you Lord.
