Well - we had four showings on our house but no offer!!
I am thankful for the showings - 4 is a huge amount in a tough real estate time. The only feedback we received was and I am quoting here "your home is too nice - our children would tear it up in a month"....
Not really sure what to say about this?? Just move on to the next buyer.
I am sad - I am frustrated - I am ready to start the process of adopting. I feel stuck in limbo.
That is how I feel today...it has been coming for a few weeks/months now...either on the verge of tears or nerves or wanting to scream!!
I am going to another adoption meeting tonight - it is at Catholic Charities. I hope to get some clarity on a few unanswered questions.
How are we going to come up with the enormous amount of money? How are we going to get our house sold? What if we wait so long that the waits become longer and longer or they close the program? What if they change the age requirements and we don't qualify? What it what if what if!!!!!
I have been running more - trying to keep my mind off adoption.
Keep the blog stalking to a minimum. Yeah right....
Talking to friends....
Praying...lots of praying!! For specific things...to sell my house. For contract on my house close to the asking price. For clarity. To help me make decisions. For prosperity.
I have 2 blog friends that are #1 on the wait list. I can't wait for them to get their referrals!! I am praying for both of you this week!!
"I think part of the problem is people get a hit of energy when they are negative about something, and it is a very detrimental way for them to get that hit of energy. They do not understand why they do not have a happy life. That kind of stuff is just noise to me. I just feel sorry for them." As quoted in USA Today.
