[This is part of a series of posts on the home buying process I'm going thru. To see the full set, visit the house category archives.]

You can thank me this time.

You see, about 9 months ago, one of my co-workers used to joke that it was his fault every time there was a significant jump in our stock price.


Because he was buying a house and selling stock to help with that process. This probably happened two or three times. It got to the point that when I saw a spike in the price, I'd IM him and ask "Did you sell this morning?"

I thought it was funny in a "I hope that never happens to me" sort of way.

Well, it would appear the tables are turned now.

Remember, Murphy is always watching. Always.
