Leaving on Sunday to take a trip out to Missouri. Trying to pack and get things settled prior, but my loan lady is not cooperating. This being my first loan, I'm not sure if this is the norm or not ... but she keeps saying she'll have something to me by 'tonight' 'tomorrow morning' 'this afternoon' and so far, nothing. She also seems put out whenever I call her. I'm not sure if I'm hounding too much or not enough! Meanwhile, the contractor is eager to take me all over Lebanon to have me pick out all the ins and outs for the house ... that way when everything DOES go through, he'll be ready to go. Just wish I knew more about the loan process, and whether or not delays like this were just a part of it all.
