Could it be?!

After 7 lonnnnnggggggg months of having our house on the market, we have a potential end in sight. I won't say I'm not getting my hopes up because I already have, so if it doesn't happen, then I'm prepared to be disappointed. I'll get over it.

But let's hope I don't have to, right?

We had some people come look at the house on Friday afternoon. I told Chris when I got home that I think they must have liked it because one of the packets for people who are considering a contract were gone and one of the chairs at the dining room table was pulled out -- meaning it looked like they sat and chatted about things there.

Fast forward to Saturday morning - the realtor's office calls to set up a showing that afternoon. I asked if it was the same people, but it wasn't. Bummer. Oh well, another showing is a good thing, too so we set it up. While we were out during the showing time, the office called back saying someone else wanted to do a showing this afternoon -but this time it was the Friday people coming for a 2nd showing! Ohhhh - happy dance! We were also excited because it meant that they'd see another card on the table and know that they have some potential competition. (Probably not, but you get the idea.)

So, on the way home yesterday our actual realtor calls. (This means it's serious!) She tells me that she just talked to the Friday people's agent and they want to come back for a 3rd showing this morning (Sunday) with their parents. (I guess it's a young couple -- we did the exact same thing here, I take that as a good sign.) Here's the best part of what she told me...

If the parents give them the thumbs up, then they plan to write an offer!!!!!!!!!

I *do* realize that it could be a pretty lame offer, one that will disappoint us and we'll have to counter and all of that, but still...for having NOTHING for 7 months, this has my engine running, I'll tell ya. Good thing we have two birthday parties this afternoon - -it will keep me from obsessing too much.

I will keep you posted, but just know that for now, I am super excited at the possibility of getting this whole thing resolved BEFORE the baby arrives. Or not right when baby is expected. Or right after. Basically, this is what I've been hoping for. I've been praying for God's will for our family with regards to the house situation, but my own hope and request was to get this all settled soon.

Have a great Sunday! Hopefully I'll have another great update for you soon.
