Well hey! It's been a week or so since I last updated, but I've had so much to tell you guys. Our internet is down at the moment, but hopefully we can get that remedied this week. Matt had his official first day of summer on Thursday, and we have already been having a great time, we have been swimming and playing and yesterday we even get to hit up the aquarium with some friends.
But here is the cool news. You remember all the crap that went down with our old house? Some of you may not have been reading this here blog at the time, so I will give you a really brief rundown. We bought a house, the house had poisonous levels of black mold under the floors and in the walls. The seller agreed to fix it, until we got an estimate of the cost of repairs, and the seller backed out, leaving us unable to cover the costs of repairs or to live in the home (we lived in my moms basement for several months). After dealing with the lender and a realtor, the only option was to try a short sale, and hope that the house sells before a foreclosure takes place.
And that was the last time I updated on that house. Since then, we have accepted an offer, only to have it refused by the lender, who is not accepting the offer because they feel the house should never have been approved in the first place. Well yeah, we wish it hadn't either, but their appraiser didn't find the problem any more than we did, that is not our fault! We waited a while, and then on Thursday we accepted another (higher) offer! We weren't overly hopeful, but it was nice to know that there was sincere interest in the house.
Thursday night, there was a storm here in PA. And a tree fell on the house.
A big one.
We are thankful that we weren't living int he house when the tree fell, and that it didn't fall on any or of neighbors there, but I mean, REALLY?
Oy. It's almost just funny at this point, because what else can it be, you know?
