First Disappointment in Our Florida Plans

We've been through this a few times before when moving to another area so I should be used to it by now. But, it sure feels the same!

Had found "the perfect place" and just about figured out how we'd swing it. Then news came today: "There are multiple offers now & their attorney is reviewing them."

I emailed back & said we couldn't go beyond a certain price & would need REALISTICALLY another two weeks.

"Only if for some strange reason they continue to decline offers will yours be a possibility. But by then I expect the price will have climbed beyond your limit."

Technically, we're neither in the game or out because we haven't submitted an offer. The realtor just knows what our intentions are. But still, I'm feeling defeated.

I think it's more to do with the fact that until I heard about multiple offers, I didn't realize how much I wanted the place.

Sweetie's got a smile on his face because I was certain I did NOT want to be where this home is located. And, the house is pink!!! I hate that color.

But, I'd been going to bed the last couple nights thinking of the place & imagining where the furniture would go... I have to believe that things will eventually work out.

We looked at our previous home for months online & never planned to look at it until our last day visiting the area. So strange things happen when house shopping.

What happened to the boat?!

Nothing happened to boat - other than he hasn't found one that I'm willing to live on & his health is deteriorating to the point where I don't think it would be a wise decision.
