The waiting game

My mother will tell you that I defiantly took after my father when it comes to having patience, meaning, I have none, nodda, zilch, zero very little.  I've never been good at waiting for anything, but I'm not to be confused with the "instant satisfaction generation" because that generation is just annoying!  When I was little if a tooth felt some what loose, I was yanking that sucker out even if it was no where near ready to come out.  In the days leading up to Christmas my brother and I would sneak under the Christmas tree, cut the tape on our presents, unwrap them, (sometime play with them), wrap them back up and then measure the exact amount of tape to make sure there was no trace evidence of us tampering with them.  Don't even get me started on my road rage if somebody doesn't immediately start moving when the stop light turns green.  My point being... buying a house is extra stressful since I don't like wait. 

Most people I've talked with are amazed at how quickly things have been moving for us, I on the other hand say it's been torturously slow.  In one week today, we managed to find our dream home, look at our dream home a 2nd time, get pre-approved for a mortgage, submit and offer, accept a counter offer, set a closing date of July 11th, sign the purchase agreement and submit all of our home loan applications to the under writer... and now we wait!  I literally have no idea how long this process is going to take but I'm sure it will feel like For-ev-er... For-ev-er (+10 points for anybody who got just the Sandlot reference).  Does anybody know how long it will take?  Is it hours?  Days? Weeks?  Do any of you know how to do hypnosis and will you put me in a daze until we get the keys to our home?
