Take the Good with the Bad

I will certainly take the good with the bad anyday. In this particular case, my good certainly outweighs the bad. But we will start with the bad and build up to the good.

Yesterday while I was at work, I got a really shitty call. Really shitty. Brought me to tears almost instantly. The buyer on our house was getting denied for their loan. They filed for bankruptcy, had a foreclosure, blah, blah, blah. I was so angry. How do we get this far in the process to even have potential closing dates, and then we are basically back to square one. I was so incredibly pissed. Not only did we now not have a buyer for our house, we are more than likely going to lose the house we have an offer on. They have already been waiting over a month for us to even get an offer on our house, and now this. Literally starting from the beginning again. It’s so incredibly frustrating. So frustrating that I went home and drank 8 beers last night. E I G H T. I can’t even remember the last time I did that.


We talked to our realtor last night about what to do and we have some options. First of all, we have to reach out to the seller’s of the house we want to buy and see if they are even willing to wait around on us any longer. I would not be surprised if they didn’t wait on us. I don’t know that I would wait on us. I wouldn’t blame them if they wanted to move on. If they decide to stick with us, then we will leave our house on the market for the time being, in hopes that someone will bite quick. With it being this late in the year, I don’t know if that will happen or not. Plus, I’m not to keen on moving as it gets closer to the holiday’s. Scott doesn’t seem to care about that, but he isn’t the one that’s going to have to try and fit in shopping for gifts, managing a one year old, and trying to put a new house together. Well, I’m sure he will contribute to some of that, just not all of that. 🙂

So, that’s my bad news…

…My good news…



Raelynn at the doctor on Monday waiting for her LAST blood draw 🙂 I have no idea what she is doing with her face LOL

The doctor called me today around noon and told me that all of her blood results came back normal. She is anemic, but as long as we keep giving her the iron supplements, everything should be okay! I really felt deep in my heart that she didn’t have a blood disorder, but just the fact that she could’ve had it, scared the living shit out of me. I just wish I could see her right now and squeeze her little face off. I just cannot even put into words the relief I feel right now.

So, yes, I will certainly take the good with the bad. Yesterday after I found out the news about the house, I instantly thought, this HAS to mean Raelynn is going to be okay. Surely, everything is going to be okay. I could care less about this stupid house shit just as long as my baby girl is okay.
