Pins and needles

I've been on pins and needles all day. We've made an offer on a house and we should know something by the end of the day. Last week, we accepted a nice offer on our house -- with the condition that we find something to buy for ourselves. We spent the weekend looking at a few new listings and then going back to one that we thought we liked, but weren't sure. And when we stepped inside the second time, we knew we liked the house -- it has everything we had on our list. Our only hesitation was that it wasn't in our first choice neighborhood, but rather our second. And that's okay. It would mean I will still drive Emily to school and that we're about 1/4 mile farther from family rather than closer. But, on the positive side, the house is linked to some wonderful bike trails that lead right to our old neighborhood and Emily's friends. So, she would be happy with that.
Soooooo. . . we'll see what happens. Keep your fingers crossed;)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. With the housing market the way it is, in my neighborhood houses are on the market 9-12 months without a contract.

Hooray! I hope things work out the way you hope! Same thing here--houses are sitting on the market for months before being sold--you guys are very lucky. Let us know as soon as you hear!

P.S. Is your baseball season over? Ours should be over this week! I love watching them play but it will be nice having our evenings back. :)

I have fingers and toes crossed, of course this is making it hard to do much. How very super to get a good offer on your home and to find one you like. I certainly wish you all the best. Barbara

That is so exciting! Hope it all works out for you...keep us posted!
My daughter is hoping their house sells in Charlotte, they're moving back closer but so far just lookers and not really any offers. You've done good to get an offer and find another one!

Oh, that's awesome Karen! Wow, you got an offer on yours very quickly and have already found one that you like, that's great :) I hope the new one comes through and it sounds wonderful. How great to have bike paths that lead to your old neighborhood!

Hope it all works out, keep us updated!

All that preparation is paying off, and how great about the trail. If this is the home you're suppose to get, God will make it be. I will pray that all goes well about it.
