Let's try this again

We sold the house. Again. For the second time. On Wednesday we had three offers come in. None were that great, but we felt we could live with one of them. We were home when the family who purchased it came through. They had two small boys and I whispered to Kevin I thought the house would be perfect for them. One of their boys was around a year old so our nursery would be great for him and the boy's bathroom is boy friendly so that would totally work for them too.

We have the home inspection in about thirty minutes and the appraisal will happen on Monday. They are eager to get in, they sold their house in August and have been home hunting since so that makes me feel good that they liked what they saw. All parties are hoping the house will close by Dec. 11th. That way we can move out before my surgery. If it doesn't then it is more likely that we won't move out till after Christmas because I will be out of commission for a couple of weeks.

Kevin, the boys and myself spent the morning driving through neighborhoods and looking at used homes. Afterwards we stopped at the Pancake Pantry for a delicious brunch. I looked up all the info. on the homes we were interested in and unfortunately they were either out of our price range or we didn't like the pictures of the interiors. That's okay though because we really want to build anyways but felt that we should at least look at what was available in the used market. We are going to lay low for the next couple of weeks and make sure everything moves along with the sale of this home before we get ourselves in a happy tizzy again over the new build.
