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.
