Hurry up and wait

All systems are go.  Well almost.  We have a loan.  We have movers.  We have a real estate agent.  We just need...a house.  It's so very frustrating.  At first glance the timing of this move is perfect.  The kids are in the last month of school, and our lease is up in a month.  However.  Since it's the last month of school dropping everything to go look at homes is not going to happen.  They have school projects, finals and award ceremonies coming up.  I don't want to screw up their grades by jerking them around the country at the last moment.  SO that makes the house search hard.

We had a list of favorites all planned out so that when CCB visits this week he can go check them out but last night we got news that our 2 favorite homes now have contracts on them.  I can't tell you how disappointed I am!  Our 3rd choice was nice but it wasn't my FIRST choice for heavens sake!  So I scour the net some more.  Trying to do my part from hundreds of miles away.  Fingers are crossed and prayers are going up.  EEK!

It's a trying time, isn't it? Priorities clash and there's not enough time, but you're strong and your family is strong. We'll be reading about your success not long from now.

The "right" house will come along. It sounds like you have done a good job of getting all your ducks in a row.

Having just done all this, you have my sympathy and you're in my thoughts!
