Wow. I don't know any other word to use. Wow. The last few weeks have been this amazing whirlwind of activity. We put our house on the market the Friday before Memorial Day. Of course we had no showings that weekend. I was thankful to be honest because we just were not quite ready yet. But Monday night we got the call we would be having our first showing. Well, we had several showings that week and by the following Tues or Wed we had an offer. I could NOT believe it. I had been praying all along that we sell the house quickly so that M and I wouldn't have to be separated for too long. I knew it would be really tough on the boys to have to stay here while M went on to NC. Just was not looking forward to that one. But in an amazingly short amount of time we sold the house. I am still in shock I think. I guess it won't be real until next week when we close and I will be homeless.
So we headed to NC last week to try and find a new house to call home. That was an interesting experience. Full of ups and downs. I think Wed afternoon was the absolute worst for me. Everything just hit within an hour. We had made an offer on a house the night before and had figured out it just wasn't going to work. They wanted more than we were willing to spend on it and so I felt like we were back at square one. It was a horrible feeling.
Then, I got the inspection report from our realtor here in IN and I misread one of the things they wanted repaired. You see, M had installed out water softener. Now I had full confidence in his abilities to do this. BUT...he casually mentioned on our way to NC that if they found anything it would be with the water softener. What? So he tells me that it may not be up to code. What? He said if they had any problems with it we would just take it with us then. What? Crap, crap, crap was all I could think. I wasn't mentally prepared for all of this so it really threw me. And I don't do well when thrown a huge curve ball like that.
Anyhoo, we still don't exactly know what they are talking about. The inspector said he was not able to find a ground for our copper piping. They told me it was the main lines and not the water softener. I of course have a call in to the builder but haven't heard back yet. Will start the bugging process if I don't hear back from them by tomorrow. This has me a wee stressed out. But trying very hard not to. Just go with it I keep telling myself. It will all work out. Look at what has so far!!!!!!! Just go with it...
