Barbie Doll Needs a Barbie Home
Hi bitches, I mean, fellas, I may get a home of my own!!!! 散花Ahh..not yet, but IronBarbie is working on it. It has to work, cause I am IronBarbie 😎
How many times I have moved around? I don’t even remember. Bank asked me to give a previous address for verification, my response was: Which State do you want? I got a list, kiddo.
Although there is always an inner drive to get a place of my own and call it home, the real push is - I just wanna get outta my apartment. Cockroaches, gross but alright they are everywhere; ants, yikes but okay I will get pest control or just live with it since they don’t bite; We found RAT!! If you don’t want to call it that, fine, then MOUSE. Either way, they don’t look as cute as the picture in your children’s book, unless you find this little fluffy animal a furry friend (typed this with sarcasm). The challenge was, the mouse trap didn’t kill it, only caught on its nose - imagine the scene of a struggling mouse whose bloody nose get caught. I … just…can’t…. Now it’s my turn to struggle and wonder how to kill it…Dude, it takes bloody courage to kill a bloody mouse.
Let’s get back to the exciting part, my first home. Long story short, I got tried of driving around looking for and touring big and small, one-story and two, pool and none, old and new places so finally decided to get an agent for help. And it just happened, one day, on my way home after work, we saw a house for sale so we stopped to take a look. Ummm not bad. The house is quite old in the 80s, but it has a decent yard. Condition is not too bad but certainly need some repair work. So we gave the agent a ring. The same night, he came over to show us the house. The next day, we turned in the bid, and next, we were told we got the deal. I mean, what just happened??
Thanks to the agent who was a great help referring and getting people over to inspect the house, check the termite, look into the foundation, and get professionals over to further evaluate the areas that are must-fix (safety hazard, for example) At the same time, I was getting busy negotiating with the seller, contacting loan officer, responding to title company, verifying with bank and signing a ton of paperwork which I didn’t have the time take a look.
What happens next? Well, let’s just hope all the mess and effort will come to an end soon so the next mess can hunt for us. Life is about cleaning up the mess so there is room for the next, right? No worries, I have got ya. I am IRON Barbie Ha.
To all the hard working folks:
Every dollar was earned hard, and I didn’t have any investment (not because i don’t want to, cause I don’t have any to) Yet, I am still able to get a house, ()maybe old, maybe tiny) with every penny I earned. It means, my folks, if you are an ordinary, nothing-special person like me, you can still achieve our dreams. I am proud to get a roof for myself, go get yours.
May all the odds be ever in your favor.
