Bailout Rejected, Dow Tumbles and I'm Waiting for Loan Approval

This is shaping up to be a dicey day to be waiting for a client's loan to be approved by one of the last banks still standing.  At least we chose one of the few remaining stable financial institutions.  I'm looking for reasons to be optimistic on a downer of a day and here's what I'm finding:

The middle school kids are laughing and giggling as they walk past my office on their way home from school.  Life goes on.

I have an offer out on a foreclosure and I'm a wee bit more optimistic the offer will be accepted without a counter from the lender.  There are buying opportunities in every market.  Life goes on.

I'm planning a vacation to Egypt in January and found a great deal on airfare.  A fabulous reason to celebrate today.  Life goes on.

I received an invitation to "stop by" this evening from a client who purchased a home earlier this month.  She's finally unpacked, the new furniture arrived and she's anxious to show off her new place.  Two months ago she was overwhelmed and in tears while in the midst of selling, buying and divorcing.  Life goes on.

 

The ride may get a little bumpy once in awhile, but banks will continue to loan money, houses will continue to sell and the economy will recover.  Life goes on.
