Offers x2 and other things...

Ok...so we don't technically have two offers yet, but we were told last night that the second one was being written at 7:30pm and we would receive it today. Waiting to see it...

Yesterday's offer was lacking. They came down on our price and asked for 6% for all buyer's expenses. Tsk, tsk, tsk. Not satisfactory.

The offer we're expecting today should be over the asking price so that we can pay their closing costs. That's more like it.

Seriously, there is a $10,000 difference in the profit these offers would produce.

If this second offer comes through as explained...they will have a deal and we will smile all the way to the bank!!!


I have to take The Girl Child to the dentist today because I believe she has a traumatized tooth that is beginning to absess. The appointment is at 2pm...so if you think about it, say a prayer for Miss Ella.


Jon & Kate: I wish they would ditch TV-Land and get their act together. They both have faults...but the most major fault they have is that they have dropped all appearances of living for God. I can remember when they first started all of this and they mentioned God and church regularly. They lost their way...Satan is winning. It is very sad.


I know Sunday was Father's Day, but I would really like to collect my crown for wife of the year. I accompanied my husband to a Chinese restaurant for lunch Sunday. Something neither of us thought I'd ever do. I can't say that I ate a great deal of Chinese food...rice, won ton soup, bourbon chicken and a few other things, but the kids and I enjoyed the fries and chicken they had as well. Topped it off with some ice cream and a fortune cookie. Good to go. Hubby was happy!

Oh. I do lose the Daughter of the Year title, though. I mailed my dad's Father's Day card on Saturday, so he didn't get it until today. Then...hours after I mailed it, hubs picks up the gift card that should've been IN the card and says 'Hey, wasn't this for your day?'. Yep. Great. So I said in Dad's card that he could enjoy dinner on us...well...not without the card. Off to the post office again today.


I hope you have a lovely Tuesday...I'm planning on it!!

That is SO EXCITING about the offers! I am so happy for you guys.

An abcessed tooth is NO FUN - I had one (the same tooth twice) and it was the WORST pain I have ever ever ever experienced ever -- ever. Without question, the worst. Ouch. Praying that gets taken care of quickly.

So glad to read about offers! Bring on the excitement!

I had gotten on blog today to get your email address so I could see if any of last weeks showings resulted in an offer! And you got two, well almost! Wow! That is super cool. Okay, I have to say it, "GOD'S GONNA SELL YOUR HOUSE TODAY!" That is awesome. And if they give you over asking so that you can actually afford to help them with closing costs, that is even cooler! Go God! I know you guys have been waiting for this for awhile. We finally have another showing tonight...maybe God will sell ours too?!?!?
Sending love y'alls way!
