Well it's a no go on the home refinance.
Apparently a 100 year old small farmhouse on 4-1/2 acres is just not worth enough.
Credit came back fine.
So did the debt/income ratio.
We had enough money in the bank.
The place is worth more than we wanted to borrow.
Just not enough.
So we wasted $537.
But onto more interesting things.
Today is Tuesday.
Time for Ten Things Tuesday, which I have missed the last few.
This weeks Ten Things Tuesday is about what this time of year is all about.
So, here we go:
Tis the season for
Scholars have come to the conclusion that Jesus was actually born in September, but I have seen people date his birth as early as late spring. Why did they pick December 25th as the day to celebrate His birth? That date is during Yule and the best way to get pagans to change their religion is if another religion is right there to take it's place.
Sales out the wing wang. I still don't know what I am getting for my daughter, but I am sure I will find a bargain.
3. Checkout lines are all open.
The only time that happens at Target and Walmart is during the holiday season. Possibly Kmart too. So many have closed, I can't find one.
You wait for stores to open. You wait in checkout lines. You wait in return lines. You wait to see if anyone is going to send you a card this year.
You can make it anytime you want, but you can only buy it at the store this time of year.
Some people get the blues around the holidays. I do. When I was a teen, my grandma was found dead on Christmas Eve. That's a phone call I won't forget. Neither is having to go to my other grandma's on Christmas Day to celebrate. Cause that is just what you do.
7. Candy canes
Is there a way to eat them without getting all sticky?
8. Christmas movies
They make tons of made for TV Christmas movies every year. But, I am a fan of A Christmas Story.
I watch that and Scrooged every year.
9. Decorations and lights
I am a fan of simple and tasteful. Putting up gazillions of lights and lawn decorations is why I am glad I live in the middle of nowhere so I don't have to see it.
10. Making cookies
People that never bake cookies, bake this time of year. My daughter, nieces, and I get together and make cookies. My sister doesn't celebrate Christmas anymore and she doesn't talk me much so she doesn't come anymore.
Have a great Tuesday!
