Chirping birds and bouquets of daisies

First of all, thank you Marla for inspiring my title. I'm pleased to announce...WE HAVE AN OFFER on our house! We're trying not to get our hopes up because we still have to make a counter-offer because this one would give us a lot less money than we'd hoped. I told you the good news first. The bad news is that we lost the other house we'd put an offer on earlier. They gave us a chance, but our offer was bumped by a buyer who didn't have a house to sell. We lost the house on Monday and got an offer on ours today (Friday). Figures. But we have a few great options. We looked at one house the other day and pretty much loved it, but want to look at a few others before we decide. We got a list of the houses in our price range and in the area we want to be in, and there were 43. Probably going to find 1 that we like. Not too worried. God has a plan, and we're pretty optimistic about it. But we'd still love the prayers! Nothing is for sure yet, and until the papers are signed, I'm not going to get a lot of beauty sleep. So if you see me at WalMart, please remember how much stress I've been under...and put an extra 1/2 gallon of Rocky Road ice cream in my cart.

I do pray that the roller coaster called selling a home does not take you for another expected ride just when you think the safety bar is about to release.

I so feel your pain. We countered and it was recountered and then we said yes, and they said YEA! and I was exhausted just from that few days of hard emotional work. That was after praying that God would show me what to do with our adorable ducks prior to the move....all dead within a week. No one can say God doesn't answer prayer, I just tell people to be careful what they pray for. :-) I'll make you a win/win deal. I'll pray for your sale and you pray for mine okay? :-)I love your blog. Diane sent me over here and I keep coming back for more laughs. Bye now, I am going to go pray for you.
