Could today be my lucky day?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold, Fair Oaks

Ever since I was a little girl, 8 has been my lucky number.  I loved drawing 8s on scratch paper.  Then when I was about 10 years old, a friend of my mother's became interested in numerology and told me that my lucky number was 8.  Since I already liked the number, I was convinced it was true, and ever since then, when asked to pick a number, I usually pick 8.

I currently have two short sales that have been hitting one bump in the road after another.  We have been through 2 buyers on one (over 5 months) and three buyers on the other (over 13 months), and negotiations with buyers and with the lenders have been somewhat rocky and stressful.

We have previously been told on both that we finally had approval, but before I could receive either one in writing, I'd get a call that the appraisal expired188881 points! or a fixture lien would not be paid after all or a loan got bumped into HAFA against the wishes of the borrower and taken away from the negotiator, etcetera, etcetera.

I woke up early this morning with a good feeling about today.  Found an email from a couple we met at an open house who wants to have us help them buy a home, the sun is shining, and I'm thinking this could be the day that the approvals (or at least one of the two) comes through.

And look at my Active Rain point score!  Could that be an omen?  I think so - I'll let you know.

Hi Susan, hopefully today is your lucky day.  If not, maybe tomorrow as it will be the 8th of June.  Thanks for sharing your interesting numerology story.

Oh man, I thought I lost a day somewhere!  I was SO sure today is the 7th ... I'm glad others think so as well.

Thank you everyone.  I haven't heard yet on the short sales, but I still think this is going to be a great day.

Cynthia - It is the 7th today, but since tomorrow is the 8th, I might still carry over the good luck till then.

Thanks Craig.  So far it's luckier for me than for Jon.  I went out and was looking at the pool and our trees in the back yard and he came out to see what I was doing.  He wound up working on some honey-do stuff that I found for him.  It's just 75 right now, so better to do it now than later when it's 90+. Right?

 Susan, just wanted to know if the 8th was lucky for you?  If not I hope that you get some great lucky days down the road even if they are different numbers.

I like writing 8, but 13 is my favorite #!  It will be a great day, even if your short sale comes undone, other good things will happen!!!!

You also got a palindrome. I had never knew what a palindrom was until I met my husband 16 years ago. He's addicted to them.
