At Last

It seems like ages that I've been waiting to write this post. I've imagined the excitement and what I would say so many, many times since last June. And yet, here I am about to do it, and it's just not what I imagined.

We got an offer on our house--FINALLY! It's a decent offer based on the current price of our house, but it's so far from where we started, it's depressing. All the plans, things that were supposed to be, have to be altered significantly. I can't stop thinking how different things would be if we had priced it differently in the beginning, but I know should, woulda, coulda isn't going to do anyone any good.

It's also not a full purchase offer--it's a rent until they sell their house in California offer. So it doesn't feel final, because we can't close here until they close there, etc., etc. But financially it will be a very large bandaid to stop some our financial bleeding.

So I am thankful, because really it could have kept going and going and gotten us to a worse situation. And I know there are ohters out there who are and will have to go through worse. So yes, I'm grateful, just not quite as excited as I had hoped to be.

In other news, sorry I've been such a bad blogger. I've been swamped with my new freelance job and a crazy amount of birthday parties--six in about eight days. I will try to be better!
