More of the Waiting Game

The rollercoaster ride continues. I don't like writing about things when they haven't been resolved so, forgive me for not writing about making an offer on the house. We did make an offer and then waited, and then the bank counter-offered, and then my mother counter-counter-offered, and we finally heard back on Saturday that they had accepted. Since this house is a foreclosure, there is extra paperwork and extra time for every step. The bank wanted to close on it this Friday, which was really fast, but our realtor told them we needed more time for the inspection so they were willing to stretch it out until July 7. Still really fast. The inspection will be on Friday and I will take the day off for the inspection and another half day for closing.

This is all so weird. I hate moving and change and this is going to take a lot of work at the hottest time of year. But at least the new house has air conditioning, unlike my current house with only evaporative cooling and the small A/C unit that I fit in the sliding door. 

It works great for getting to sleep before midnight but I have to dismantle it if my big dog needs to go out at 2am.

So, that's what's been going on. Just waiting on other people to make decisions. I still get a 4 day weekend for the fourth of July so I am looking forward to that. All of my weekends after that will involve moving or handymen or remodeling my house to put it up for sale. I just want to wave a magic wand and it will all be done.

Daizy, let me be the first to congratulate you on your new home! Your Mum must be so looking forward to moving in with her roommates.

oh my goodness - busyness!!!! Is it the house with the kitchen I like?

Mmm...well, she does want to move in with me. The dogs are another story. She's not an indoor pet person. That's ok because the dogs will have plenty of space on their side of the house.

It's the kitchen with lots of cabinets and black countertops (which she wants to tear out.)
