In August, Jeff and I made an offer on a pre-foreclosure, short sale townhome. We waited and waited for the bank to either agree or reject our offer. Finally, at the end of November, the bank accepted our offer. December was filled with inspections, financial and legal concerns, as we made sure all was ready for when the house would be ours. The closing was the middle of the month, and the day we had our first winter storm. That night, the cable television and internet went out, and a window in our office leaked. Welcome to home ownership!
I just returned from a short visit with a dear friend in Tucson, in southern Arizona. While I was there, I developed a cold. Consciousness-wise, colds can signify confusion, but in my life, they indicate that I’m feeling overwhelmed with all that’s going on. And considering the past month, I would have to agree that’s been the case.
