Derek was outside mowing the lawn when we got the call that Hottie Batottie did in fact sign the paper to remove the contingency and to put the “Window Horror” into our hands for immediate attention and corrective measures prior to closing.
I must say that going from $4000 of required repairs to $2000 of repairs was quite a relief. And Derek determined that we only have to borrow Cath’s lawn mower ONE MORE TIME before a May 24’th closing. I’m thinking we may have 2 more mows in our future.
We celebrated by drinking homemade margaritas and when The Boy brought it to our attention that we had forgotten HIS margarita, I made him a nice class of homemade lemonade that looked exactly like a margarita. Without the benefit of helping him sleep at night. Damn.
Gotta run. Despite the continual mantra–“Where do we write?” and continally receive the correct response–“on paper at the table,” my son has just drawn a line across my computer screen with a green crayon. My brand new computer screen. I would think that he just forgot the rule, but since he has been able to give us directions home from a mile away since he was 14 months old, I’m finding it difficult to believe that when he had that green crayon in his hot little hands, he forgot that he wasn’t supposed to DRAW ACROSS A COMPUTER SCREEN. WHILE HIS MOTHER WAS TYPING.
Now to sit on pins and needles until we hear if we got the other house. At least I’ll have a computer screen to clean and an entire house to pack while I wait…Share on Facebook
