OK. I get it. I am not in control.
I move across the country because my husband has the call.
I move into a temporary house, and I weather the storm.
I put in an offer on a short sale, and wait... and wait... and wait... for it to close.
We move in, and work hard to surmount all that Murphy and his damned law throw our way.
I pray and pray and pray that our home in Louisiana will sell.
We finally get and accept an offer. This week.
A geiser. In the master bathroom. Flooding through the ceiling down to the living room below.
A new ceiling. New hardwood? New carpet? New plumbing.
Calls to the insurance company. Trying to answer questions about the catastrophe 1000 miles away.
No idea what's going to happen to the offer... the SIGNED offer PENDING INSPECTION... scheduled to close the end of this month.
I realize that there are people facing worse things. Earthquakes and tsunamis and nuclear disaster, for instance.
I am waving the white flag.
I am crying uncle.
