I first mentioned the Stone House back on March 7th as I rambled on about Geese Flying at Two in the Morning - it was one of several houses we were planning to visit. We went - we saw - we LOVED the Stone House.
We were so excited to have our offer accepted - we had a New Home Sweet Home... to look forward to. Our adventures in living in rental property would soon be over. I am not liking this rental thing much.
The various inspections came and went - ahh but if it were as easy as that just sounded. It was a hassle - not so plain and simple! The financial negotiations didn't flow smoothly either. I now believe the sellers realtor could have done her job better... much better - even as late as week before last she could have been doing a better job!
I've always believed that what is meant to be - will be. We were prepared to walk away from this house - had even signed release papers and were already looking at other houses. There were other possibilities - houses that were lovely, houses that were bright and clean (and some not so), some that had large workshop areas for The Engineer and some were even brand new. But they were 'just houses'... this Stone House had character... it is more than 'just a house'.
And now after working through all the details - it will indeed be ours... the middle of June!
And look it has a picket fence too!
