Sometimes you have to remind yourself tomorrow is a new day

This business can be nuts.  There are definitely some things that happen that make you plant your forehead in your palm. Like today when a lender said Nope Nope Nope to the well permit (which would not have been issued had a septic system been within 100 feet), to the septic permit (that would not have been issued if a well was within 100 feet).  It's NOT even a private well, but it's a water system that has to have annual tests and annual permits. The well is not even ON the property my client is buying.  But we have to have a survey showing the exact distance.  We have an approximate distance of 165+/- feet, which is at least 60 feet more than needed and no... no good, must have survey. It's one of the reasons that buyers should ONLY use local lenders.  Good thing I love these buyers.  I can't get those hours back that I worked on getting all that documentation that the underwriter who likely never saw a well doesn't understand.  The moral of this story: Please please listen to me when I tell you it's for your own good to use one of the lenders I recommend.

Throw in the mix that I just took my stuff to my CPA for my corporate taxes a week ago and that I'm in the middle of a refinance on my office. (time hog)

New listing yesterday with photo shoot.  Showing appointment today and saw one home that left me short of breath from the mildew and being closed up for a long time. Another photo shoot for another new listing tomorrow. And it's 10:30 and I just realized I never called another lender back to ask if the appraisal that came in was 1- okay in value and 2- was that the last piece of the conditions we need to get the clear to close.  But hey at 10:30 I sent him a text because I can. I expect he will answer before I wake up in the morning.
