Imagine my surprise this morning when I checked my email and found we had a offer on the house!
Oh no…we just reserved a campsite for February! When will we learn! Oh no…we don’t want to go back to Georgia until it warms up. Oh no, we should have sold way more stuff! Okay Karen, just read the email first and panic later!
After reading the email completely, I don’t think we have a problem. It’s $40,000 lower than our asking price. It’s actually insulting, but I know how those things work, so I’m trying not to get my berka in wad (as Al would say). I’m not even sure they have their financing approved yet and it’s with FHA, which can be a real PITA. Our Realtor wants us to decide our bottom line walk away price so that we can make a reasonable counter offer. They want to close February 24th, if we accept the offer. We don’t want a contingency based sale. I don’t want to go back up there, sell everything we have, and then find they can’t get the financing approved. I guess we’re not desperate enough, but we want a sure thing before we go through all the effort.
So in the meantime…I plan to do some cabinet cleaning/organizing today. I have a big pantry that holds tons of stuff, but it’s not organized right and I can never find anything. Al is working all day, so I’ll be stuck here without a car. I walked to the Laundromat yesterday and did two loads of laundry. I’ll probably do more today. It’s not too far of a walk.
It was sunny and cool yesterday, but since we’re in a sunny spot, it was nice and warm inside the motor home. The cats found themselves a nice warm sunny window and spend the day snoozing, as usual. Al said he about froze all day long because of the wind, but we were nice and warm. I think the worst of our cold front is over and it’s going to be a nice week-end.
We haven’t done anything fun lately to take pictures of, so I thought I’d post a few older pictures.
This is a day trip down to the Boca Grande area (west coast of Florida, south of Tampa). The water was very pretty and clear that day.
The next few were taken at SeaWorld a few years ago.
I guess we need to get out and do something fun so I’ll have some current pictures!
