So here we are a week later.
I am now posting my own story as I wrote it before I posted it last week as a prompt with no words. Sparrow guessed my news having just been through it herself, but no one came up with a story or even tried to match mine. Not quite as exciting as I had hoped and definitely not a blogging-in-tandem adventure, but am posting my completed story just the same…
We actually had some time to relax and begin to try and process all that’s happened in the past year.
But of course, people like me aren’t content with that.
People like me start thinking.
And then I got the….
I started to look around.
I just wanted to know what was out there and maybe get acquainted with the market up here. But of course, looking around aimlessly doesn’t really tell you much. I needed to figure out what sort of range I should be looking at.
I noticed there were a few open houses the next weekend. So we decided to go and just have a look.
Perhaps get acquainted with some of the layouts and issues of houses in this area.
It was just a look.……really.
Just ruling out neighbourhoods and stuff like that.
THERE WAS A HOUSE!
This house that seemed like it was MADE just for us.
It had so many things in common with our last home..It was just uncanny.
We didn’t mean to find it.
Really we didn’t.
We HAD to have it.
Making an agreement,
Meetings with the money people,
Signing a ton of papers,
Making a list,
Checking it twice,
And trying so hard to get all the pieces to fit together.
The snowball effect had begun.
By this time, we were back under a lot of stress….
Everyday again seemed like another day we were trying to keep each other going…..
And yet, so far, we are finding the answers to everything that comes up
Sometimes, it takes some
Other times, it takes
And when all else fails…..
In the end, though….all we’re hoping for is the big stamp of approval
So that we can finally come in for a landing.
And then we’ll probably spend our winter….
