Sometimes news is just news

Sometimes news is good news.

Sometimes news is bad news.

Sometimes news is just news.

That is what we got on Thursday. The owners of the house we put an offer on accepted our contract. Now before you go and get even a little excited for us, let me tell you what this means. This means that we currently have the best offer and the sellers have sent our offer to their lenders. (Yes, we are dealing with a pre-foreclosure property and yes, they have multiple liens on the house.)

So now it is in the hands of the banks. They could sign the contracts next week. Or they could sit on them for months. There are a hundred different scenarios on how this might resolve. (including a higher offer coming in and out bidding us.)

If it happens, it will be a miracle. If it doesn't we will be no worse of then we are right now.

So say a prayer for us, or just keep your fingers crossed if that is more your style, we'd appreciate all the positive thought we can get. My specific requests are not to loose my mind in the next few weeks/months and to be granted the wisdom to learn patience (something I've never had much of.)

EEEE! That's exciting! I'm sure it's nerve-wracking too, but it's a step in the right direction, right? :)
