|Paper towel family created by me today :-P Raya uses them as puppets.|
The reason I say we "think" we sold the house is because we are going through a relocation company--which is just about as annoying as if you were going through the bank for a short sale or something--lots of paperwork has to filter through us to the relo company, they filter it to the buyers, and back and forth we go. So while we have verbally accepted an offer we still have to have the relo company process all the paperwork to make it official, and then we need to get through inspection. Hoping hoping hoping that the buyers are understanding of the fact it's an older home, because we can't afford to fix anything at the price we sold it for, or else we won't have enough downpayment to buy anything good. Once paperwork is processed and inspection is passed then on or before Sept. 2nd everything will be finalized and we'll be free to move out!! Then the relo company pays our mortgage and takes over the house until it closes in Oct....and if something falls through before then we are off the hook and the relo company is stuck with the house. :-P
So anyways, that's where we stand now. Lee didn't want me to share this news for fear of "jinxing" it, but I don't believe in that stuff anyways and I figured I've bitched enough on the blog now that you'd all be wondering where we stand now :-)
If and when we move out we'll be moving to my parents house until we find a new house we like. There is pretty much crap for sale right now (well that, and we're incredibly picky haha).
I'm sad at the thought of leaving this home because I've really enjoyed it here, but relieved to almost (hopefully) be done with the selling saga. I'm sure us and the girls will have fun making new memories in the new house. A home is not an address--a home is a family and the people you love, right? :-)
