....

I cannot even begin to express my rage. We went to the bank yesterday to get things squared away for our mortgage. We assumed that, because our old mortgage was "fully portable" there would be no problems. Never, ever trust the bank. Our mortgage was refused, and they won't even accept my father co-signing for us. So, we've sold our home, moved to a new city, and now we can't buy a new house. We're fucked, pardon my language.

This news comes at a relatively bad time for me. Since Sunday or so I've been feeling incredibly homesick for my friends, and for Edmonton itself. Now I can't help but think that we made the biggest mistake of our lives selling our house and moving here.

I'll bet you don't miss the crazy hockey neighbour lady.

Somehow this is going to work out. You guys have so many advantages going for you (you're both literate, intelligent, employable, you're not addicted to crack (are you?) so sooner or later things will fall into place. Sooner would be a whole lot better, but you know how the universe has to screw with people before life goes smoothly for a while.

We miss you, too. That said, try to remember how much you loathed that house. And would you really have wanted to stay here with the high rents and all just so you could hang around us fickle geeks once or twice a month? No, of course not. Don't be silly. :)
