To sum up what’s happened in the last two weeks I offer this quote: “The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.”
In actuality so much has happened in just the past week that I cannot wrap my mind around putting it out there succinctly. So today you will be getting a multi-part story broken up into bite size pieces so we are all on the same page on what’s coming next. And all this while I’m still trying to figure out what comes next. So here goes…
I went to Texas. I had a great visit with my family, saw all four of my siblings and my nephew. It was a eleven day stay. On the morning of the 10th day, my dad and I took the time to talk.
I started with an apology for my financial position, owning all of the decisions which have led me to this place.
I thanked him for his selfless generosity in helping me get into a home four years ago when our lives were in such chaos. (You can read that story here.)
And then I told him my decision to NOT buy the house from him.
And then I told him my plan to live here through Christmas as we have been, and then do everything needed to get the house on the market for the spring.
You can probably tell from the opening of this post, that my plans definitely did not meet with his plans, but before I spell all that out later today stay tuned for the next post going up in a couple of hours that lays out my decision to buy my home.
