We were supposed to be buying this house in Brighton next week. But yesterday we found out that all our plans are on hold because the buyer on our current home fell through. Now we have to sign an extension agreement on the contract on our (hopefully) new home to kick out the purchase to the end of June. In the meantime we'll be trying like crazy to get our current house under contract again and sold. That means we'll have to keep it spotless, leave at a moment's notice, and go through the whole process of having it inspected, appraised, etc. all over again with a new buyer. We're also dropping the price in order to hopefully sell it faster without any hitches.
Danya is very disappointed because she was planning to have her 10th birthday slumber party in her new home. I don't think the younger kids understand time well enough to really get what's going on. Daniel and I are both sort of at loose ends, not knowing what's going to happen now. If we don't get a buyer fast than we'll end up losing the contract on this beautiful house and have to start searching for a home all over again. I know God has a plan for us, but patience is hard when you can't see the big picture.
