[we find sometimes there's a tough line between logic and planning ,and just having faith, know what I min? so you have to pray and plan too, not just be lazy. so we pray, then plan come up with all possible scenarios, then pray some more and trust...]
We finally learned to put down our type A-ness and say God we know you are in control and whatever happens and whenever it happens is just right.
I think God is up there giggling and saying are you ready for some more...=)?
Within three days of each other we heard...
We got the house... AND... We had a potential (ready to sign) renter for our house here!
Really long story very short... supposedly everybody (seller, bank, and 2 pmi s!) finally approved our final offer (more on that later). Now it is back to the bank, who is now asking the seller to pay up the difference of what he owes vs. how much they would sell it to us for (a big difference). Well what is he going to say... no! I'd rather let it go into forclosure! Which would be terrible, costs the bank way more, more process to go into it, relisting, different price (probably a lot higher)... they would probably lose all that "difference" in the whole process anyway... craziness!!!
So now we have no idea what is going on and were ready to close in three weeks. Which is the end of our timeline for moving because I'm not supposed to travel anymore. And we'd like to be settled before and have a little time before baby comes. Is that too much to ask=)?
Our potential renters, who were ready to sign a lease yesterday! had to go out of town for an emergency for two days (we hope everything is ok)! Supposedly they want to sign on Friday.
Within three days God was dropping everything into place.
Right when, no joke!, we were almost going to pull our offer (and possibly rent for a bit or try for a foreclosure that hasn't come up yet) and fire our management guy (remember we can't sell, will be across the country, and haven't had luck finding a renter this time) out here because he wasn't getting things done=)
Within one day everything is up in the air again!!!
We trust you God. We know you are in control. We'd love to just go ahead and be able to finish planning, and get moved and settled into a new house a bit before the baby comes. We trust you!=)
[and Hubby has been totally slammed at work, waking up at 4am to start, and dealing with all of this=) we just have to laugh=)!]
