Offer #1

3 sets of people came by to see the house today, and we got our first official offer of 185 against our 199.  We are going to counter with 195 and see where it goes.

I was at odds with my emotions for the rest of the day.  There are too many variables to worry about, but I attempted to worry about them all.  Hubby is going to stay for a few more days just in case this goes through and we have to move out soon.  I already sort of miss having the house to myself.

Early Bird Gets the Investor

A guy came by early to critique the house. Turns out his client is just looking for an investment. He said he'd write up a proposal today, but we never heard from him.

We went to see Gone Girl in the afternoon/evening. Great movie, and not how I expected it to go. 

I feel like I already have no time to myself anymore.

Homecoming Part 2

The couple that came to see the house were nice, and Jewish I think. They arrived late but were nice. As soon they left we took a couple of minutes and then left to go shopping. They were still in the street talking about the house, which I'm taking as a good sign.

I noticed something odd about the people coming to see the house. They seem to resemble their Realtors. Maybe I'm naive, but do people really go out of their way to find a realtor that matches their own race? Now dozens of people have come, and only two had a realtor not of their own race. 

Is an odd question to ask they?

Hubby got his friend to go to a rehab facility, and they placed him on a 72 hour hold. Since he couldn't do anything else there, he came home to me. He got home right before I came home from work, and we had to go to sleep right away since we were showing the house early.

The hubby got a call from his best fried today, and he's having a nervous breakdown. So he got in his car and drove 6 hours and stayed overnight. He is hoping to get him into a rehab facility tomorrow morning.

Double Time

I'm not sure, but I think it was a gay couple that came by to see the house this morning.  They were really nice, and said that the house was decorated really nicely.  Maybe they were just being polite, but they did stay in the driveway for awhile after leaving the house.  Hopefully they want to make an offer.

I reported back to the realtor, who said that she had someone else who wanted to come at 2:00.  That lady was looking into buying a third home for her family coming from Hawaii.  She was unimpressed with our small bedroom, saying her 25 year old wouldn't like it.  I told her she should tell him to get his own place and stop mooching.  She was a little cranky about that, so I don't think she'll be making an offer.

At work I finally got Wednesday off so I just need to hang on a couple more days.

A friend has been posting some videos from college that made me nostalgic, and I started talking to an old friend back home.  She said they might be hiring for a bank call center for $14 an hour with bonuses.  She is going to get me the information tomorrow.

I talked with Hubby after I got out of work, and he thinks he might be able to take care of all of our bills with a $14 an hour job.  We are going to make a list of what we pay and see if it is something that we will be able to do.

If I Stay is done, and so is Where She Went

I couldn't sleep last night, so I ended up finishing "If I Stay".  Then I made the mistake of starting the sequel, and I couldn't put it down until I made myself at 2 AM.  I had an appointment for someone to see the house at 10:00-11:00 AM, so I didn't end up getting much sleep.  I was ready at 10, sat down on my couch to wait, and finished off the whole book in an hour.  The sequel was so much better that the first book, although I suppose the first book was pretty good too.  Overall I'm just thrilled that I have time to read again.

The people never showed up, so I texted my realtor and they are actually due to come tomorrow.  There is nothing I want more than to sleep in at this point.

It was my new shift today, and it was a little hard to stay until midnight.  I still wasn't able to go to sleep until 2 AM.
