The wind boisterously came swooping in from an easterly position and firmly grabbed hold of the tumbleweed's many branches, giving it a shove down the trail, sending it spinning and bumping over the trail's bumps, dips, and scattered rocks.
As the weed frolicked onward, it kicked up sand in its wake, sending it spraying behind it. The weed jumped quickl
It was a surreal day. Anywhere from four to nine people sat in a room without AC during a hot and humid Florida day, talking about anything from phone games like Words With Friends to old times in New York and Miami, all simultaneously trying to forget a cold and bitter fact that stared them in the face. Conversations about Angry Birds and how Pinky's and Grandma Gentry's grandfather used to beat them senseless when they acted up as children were periodically interrupted by a low guttural moan that would cut through laughter and good feelings to bring everyone in the room back down to Earth.
Everyone would glance over to the middle of the ro

I could really go into depth about all the houses we pined over and considered looking at and the pain of the fact that the bank took forever to get back to us, but I feel like jumping to the end because it won't lead you along.
We finally reached someone else at the bank and she was very nice and helpful. She gave us some good news, namely that we would be approved for more money than we originally thought. Then, she gave us bad news, namely that the wifefayse doesn't have enough credit for us to be approved for a loan and that we should work on that before considering buying a house.
