It strikes again.
We have a saying in the family. It's sort of like Murphy's law, where if something can go wrong, it will go wrong. We call it the Murray curse. If I am driving on a remote stretch of highway in the middle of the night and come upon a traffic light, it will turn red. Just because it can, and it's me. It seems like a lot of the things we deal with as a family never quite pan out the way we want them to.
As you know we have been pursuing a home to call our own. We put in an initial offer hoping to get lucky on a really good deal. They came back with a counter offer that was a little high for us but we countered back with a good, solid offer. They countered back again this morning, so we countered back to within $2,000.00. We have come up way more than they have come down but our Realtor thought we were right where we needed to be. I get a call tonight. There has been another offer and the house is being shown this coming Sunday. So now we've been told to bring our best offer this coming Monday at 5:00 pm. This house has been listed for over two months with no interest. Now that we have a good feeling and lock on it, everybody else comes out. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH. This process may take longer than I thought. We'll put together a good offer for Monday and cross our fingers.
The home and Garden show is this weekend so I think we'll head down to it and see the latest offerings. I'll snap some pictures tomorrow and get some information.
