In the midst of all the not-so-fun stuff we’ve experienced this week, there is good news to report about something that has been worrying us for many months now.
Many of you may remember that today has been an important deadline in our lives concerning our housing situation. We needed to sell our house in Smithfield by this date (to qualify for a $6500 rebate) and we absolutely needed to buy the rent-to-own house we’re in by this date, as well, or it would be sold to someone else who was ready to buy it instead. Unfortunately, we couldn’t buy this house until we had sold the one in Smithfield.
By Tuesday of this week, it didn’t seem as though anything was going to work out. Numerous people had looked at our house and we had even gotten one (ridiculously) low offer. But nothing was being accomplished and the time was about gone. So we had the stress of a housing situation to cope with, on top of the stress of my cancer and surgery. It was a lot.
However, on Wednesday, at the last possible miraculous moment, someone came to see the house in Smithfield. Who liked it. Who already had financing in place.
He made an offer. We counter-offered. He accepted.
And as of today? The deal is complete! (We actually knew the news on Wednesday but I couldn’t post about it because of a few loose ends that had to be tied up.)
I have some wonderful pictures and an extra story to post about it that will really warm your heart, especially when it came to the way Sarah was dealing with all of this. She was so sad about the possibility of losing the house and when she heard the news? Well, it was wonderful to behold.
So anyway, before I go back to bed (for the 78th time today) I did want to share that Most Wonderful News.
By the way, someone asked when Nathan would be home; he’ll be here in about two weeks. Unfortunately, he lost the job he had gotten at the yacht building company because the company lost two orders in the past few weeks and has had to lay off workers. But it will just be lovely to have him home for the summer.
Later. . .
