It's been busy-ish around these parts lately. We're still house-hunting! I can't believe it, I really thought we'd find a place and it would have all worked out by now!
Here's what I wore to tromp around looking at largely disappointing houses in the rain:
Sweater shirt: Macy's, clearance, $20! It's a linen blend and I love it.
Jeans: z cav's, torrid, awhile back
old lady boat shoes: grasshoppers
Yesterday, as we were going to yet another open house, the annoyingly chipper agent asked us why we hadn't "pulled the trigger" on a house yet. Well, the truth is, lady-that-I-don't-know, we HAVE. FIVE TIMES. Just none of the offers have worked out for reasons outside of our control, like the house inspection revealing catastrophic problems, or a short sale going badly after months of waiting, or being outbid by other offers, etc.
We're understandably more than a little frustrated, and more than a little ready to be done with the search. So the chipper agent-lady-we-didn't-know? Said, and I'm not kidding, "Well, you've really missed out on those historically low interest rates by not finding a house yet". Yep. Way to kick us while we're down. Thanks, lady. **
I smile to hide the tears.
Anyways, sorry to vent! I never do that on here. How are all of you doing? Tell me something good that is going on for you!
**ETA: This wasn't our agent! Our agent is great! This was just the agent at one of the open houses we dropped by.
