Just Tell Me When It's Over

We just received another purchase offer.

(Is it you guys? Did you collectively pool your money just to put my pathetic self out of my misery? So that I can write a post that doesn't have the words "realt*r" and "woe" and "misery" in it? And Chris can go back to just being Chris instead of the White Stallion?)

I'm visualizing happy things.

I'm visualizing a full-price purchase agreement. I'm visualizing writing the final m*rtgage payment. I'm visualizing handing the keys over. I'm visualizing Matthew McConaughey's glistening body running down the beach and...oh, wait. Wrong fantasy.

I'm visualizing the end result: us living in a home we love in a city we love near our family.

We just faxed our counter offer.

Now we wait.

Not trying to hear that

Lord grant me the serenity.

I have soooo much to catch up on, but I just wanted to say 1st: deeeep breaths, sugar and 2nd: reading your last few posts reminded me how much I heart you.

I'm assuming your counter offer started with "Hell, YES!" ??

OK so I have been reading your posts & I just wanted to tell you that I have crossed fingers, toes & all sorts of body parts I didn't even realize could be crossed for you! Hope it works out!

Kelly said...

Good luck!!!

Wouldn't that be funny if we did pool together? It would be like a REAL LIFE Cheeky Lotus Sorority. And you know, the Crazy House on the corner might actually come in handy.

Brillig said...

Hahaha. I'm with Butrfly. The crazy house is perfect for the sorority.

Good luck with the counter offer. We're all rooting for you!

Lena, I keep refreshing hoping that my google feeder has a time delay and that you've gotten some GREAT news.

Wait, why when someone is offering full price, do you counter offer? Having never owned anything more expensive than a computer, I don't understand these things. Oh, and I think my computer is worth more than my car, yes.
Well, dahling good luck!!!!!
Fingers crossed for you.

Sometimes you have to counter things like when the buyer wants you to move, how much time you have to move, and being contingent of the sale of another house. The little stuff.

Good luck with the house sale. I'm visualizing that you get what you want.

Selling you lots of good home selling vibes ... I hope this one works out!

This is all making me so nervous. I had to take a xanax just for you. Let me know when it's over, because this is just too much.
