Living in a box...

My stuff in storageYes, it's official, I'm living in a box. Well more accurately a storage center. All mystuff arrived from NY and the UK. The guys from Grabel corporate moving did a great job and got everything into the storage unit with what appears to be no damage or lost items.

I moved my bikes myself, and since this picture ws taken on Saturday I moved my white Cannondale R800 training bike and my Scicon bike box in, along with another suitcase of my stuff. So everything I own is now in this 12x15 storage unit except the stuff I bought with me in a suitcase to Toronto. I had to be very careful what I took to storage etc. as its not on the way to the airport and so remembering at the last minuteI needed something would be a disaster. So not me at all then...

Things are not going well on the house hunting front in Austin. I found great place to live but made a serious mistake trying to get a mortgage through Bank of America. First off they slaughtered my credit rating during the application process, doing a 3B credit check they hit my Transunion credit rating four times, costing me 15-points off my credit score. Second, they have just just got more and more confusing over their documentation requirements as I'm a non-resident. It's got to the point where I think I'm going to give up with them.

 triathletebigo - offered to come to the rescue, and put a pretty decent case together. However, I'd guess that given the price of the house and that I was on the margin with BoA, I wouldn't be able to afford to go down his route and it wasn't fair to put him through all the work and then find out I couldn't afford it. One more route to try. Hey Oscar see you on the 8th if not before!

So, in the meantime I'm between the office, the storage location and various hotel rooms. Toronto today, Vegas in the morning and back to Austin probably Thursday.
