The waiting game

This is the hardest part for me ... waiting and its also where my faith is the weakest. I want what i want right now. But God's timing is not my own and I have to honor that, as much as I want to move today.

We had the realtors come by yesterday and of course they need a few days to crunch numbers, find comps etc before they can give us a selling price. Im nervous, cause if the number they come back with is too low, we cant go anywhere. God has already brought us this far and who am i to doubt that he cant handle selling this old house. But its hard to have that faith, cause i know he doesnt always say yes to the things we desire in our hearts.

Today the ugly house people were supposed to be here bright and early, 9 am but no one has shown up yet. And its already 916 ... doesnt bode well. The last time we contacted them, they came by looked at the house and the guy just stopped returning phone calls. I thought id give it one more shot, this appears to be a different person, same office though but so far im not impressed.

Other than housing issues, and the chicago job, I hope to tackle some cleaning today.

Well ugly house dude was just here, he seemed nice and straighforward. Again more waiting though, he hopes to get back to us monday or tuesday.

Well thats all for now folks!

    Anna - Ugly house people are a company called homevestors, they are nationwide. Basically they buy "ugly houses", ones really junky, burned in a fire, major problems. Then turn around fix them up and sell them. So usually its below market value, obviously, since they are investing in it. So I doubt they will pay enough, but you never know!
    Claudia - nice to see you here, hope your wait isnt too long!
