Two and a half hours

(c) 2007 Ms. Huis Herself at musenmutter.blogspot.com

Mr. Kluges called me at 7 am this morning to tell me he had an email from our real estate agent. It contained a counteroffer - basically just one small change and some clarification/corrections.

We were over the moon! The waiting was over; the house would be ours!

That is until he talked to our agent at about 9:30. And we found out that it was just a counteroffer to accept our offer as a secondary one. Yeah. Hence the past tense used in the previous paragraph.


So it's been a week and a half since we put in our offer and it's just now getting officially accepted as a secondary offer... which means the people with the contingency first offer in haven't even been informed of this whole business yet.

.....which means we wait some more... and we still might not get it.

(But oh, it was a great 2 1/2 hours!)

E-gads! If you get the house (fingers crossed) I sure hope it's worth it!!!

A week and a half for that? Seriously, send him a dirty diaper.

Aaugh! That's just cruel!

Oh good gravy. What the hell? How do you have any hair left? Is your forehead all bruised up? I'd be left in a heap biting myself or something by now.

If it makes you feel any better, our first two offers for theSlum were rejected.

Of course, we don't have a contract yet....

Frustrating, this house business.
