It's official...the new house is no more..

We knew getting the house we were under contract with was a long shot now since the buyer of our house didn't work out. But we still had some hope. Well that was squashed this morning when our realtor called. The owners requested that we remove the contingency we had that stated our house must sell before purchasing their house or buy their house within the next 24 hours. Well since that obviously can't happen, we had to remove the contingency. Apparently, they have someone else who is interested in buying the house. This sucks!

It's funny how when you know something is out of your reach you start thinking about all the bad things about that option. I guess it's to make you feel better. Reminds me of that old Aesop fable about the fox and the grapes.

Well we have done that with this house...

The laundry closet that the house had totally sucks.
The fact that the hvac and plumbing wasn't working right is a total turn off. What else could be wrong?
The yappy, barking dog that lives next door would get so annoying.
The small backyard would really cramp our style.

And before all of this mess happened. Back when we thought the house was going to be ours it was...

The laundry closet isn't so bad. At least it's not right by the garage door.
The hvac and plumbing will be fixed. I'm sure the house is of good quality.
We'll get used to the barking dog.
At least the small backyard will be easy to maintain.

Well here's to you new house, I hope the family that does purchase you, enjoys you as much as we would of. *Sigh*
