Thanksgiving – 2003

It’s Thanksgiving. The one true “Tobin” holiday. I’ll be heading over to my parents place for dinner. It’ll be the usual sparkling good time, I’m sure. I give it 2 hours before someone yells at someone else. This does not take into account the yelling at the dinner table. Not anger yelling, mind you, just yelling to be the top voice at the table. Well, my mom can cook one mean turkey and she typically goes overboard with food, so I’ll enjoy it. Food – the way to a man’s heart. House purchase is moving ahead nicely. Got approved for the primary mortgage on Monday then got approval on the 2nd mortgage on Tuesday. I’m doing a 80/10/10 mortgage also called a piggyback mortgage. It allows you to put less cash down but continue to not pay PMI. PMI bad.
