Prayers and good thoughts please! Update ......
So get to the house to find out there's already a verbal contract but hadn't been executed yet .... but basically meant we needed to decide NOW because there would be a contract soon and had to have a better offer than the other people. My daughter screamed and cried most of the time we were there .... so right now the only positive thing I can say is maybe she was letting us know it wasn't the house. Because after looking at it we just wanted to do a little research on something we were unfamiliar with. I came home, looked a few things up, had our realtor send one question and she calls back and says the house is now under contract. It went on the market YESTERDAY. WTH is going on around here??? What happened to getting to look at a house a couple of times before deciding? We have to walk into a house and say we want it and make an offer on the spot or someone else is going to take it. I need a glass of wine now.
We've been looking for a house for about a month now. We only have so long to find a house because of our current rental situation. Well, my husband has made it a difficult experience for me even though I know he's just trying to do what's best for his family. I love him and hate him for that, if you can understand that.
SOOO last night I found a house in the price range I really wanted to be in, it has several features that we "want" but never expected to get because a couple of them are very hard to come by in this area. And it's the size my husband wants and overall it just seems like this is the house we've been waiting for. It went on the market just yesterday but houses have been selling like hotcakes around here, so we're seeing it today on my husband's lunch hour. Please please everyone send good vibes and prayers our way. We have to find a house by the end of next week or we may be stuck here for another year and I can't do that to our daughter. This move is going to be hard enough on her at this age, I'm afraid if we try to move when she's older it'll be too much change for her to handle AND we'd have to change schools if we didn't move til next year as well.
So please everyone send prayers our way. I know we have so much to be thankful for already but I just know this is what my daughter needs. And what I need for her ..... I need to get our family where we're going to be for the next 10 to 15 years so I can start focusing on tapping into all the resources that area will have to offer for my daughter. Thank you ladies for everything!!!
