Where Exactly Is Square One?

Well, after agreeing on a very fair offer for our home the buyer didn't qualify for his loan. So we're back to living neatly again as strangers traipse through our lives. Somewhere this must be the definition of hell.

And tell me, how can one man get so much toothpaste on one mirror in such a short amount of time? I'm considering moving his toothbrush to the shower.

We spent the day looking at houses to purchase, then got the call that the deal had fallen through. I guess it's just as well. We didn't find "the" home yet. I'm a big believer in things working out for the best.

We have plans to see the movie "Brokeback Mountain" tomorrow while they're showing the house (or as a friend of mine called it, "Bareback Mountain.") I was hoping to "surprise" my husband with the subject matter and just tell him it was a western, but he'd already heard about it...darn it. He wanted to know what he should wear to see such a movie and I said, "Oh, I'm sure we can put you together a gay cowboy outfit." He laughed...sort of.

Karyn,
So many thoughts, so little time!
1. Sorry about the buyers not qualifying. Seriously. that sucks, big time.
2. If you wouldn't tickle him when he's brushing, he might not spew so much toothpaste. But you're right -- if you tickle him while he's brushing in the shower it could be fun for both.
3. Having matching ski sweaters is not weird. It's cute.
4. Ever read "Catch 22?" If you don't know our password, I can't tell it to you or even discuss whether or not we have one.

Sorry to hear about the deal falling through Karyn... but, I'm with you, a big believer in things happening for a reason, and hey, having your place sold, with no place to move to... would seriously suck! Who would want to 'settle on' a house that wasn't 'the house', just because theirs had sold?

Oh... and what's with the realtor not bringing a 'pre-qualified' buyer in? One of the first things you should ask of any agent is "Have you pre-qualified the buyers?" It cuts down on the 'faucet rattlers' :)

You’ve been tagged! Got weirdness? Reveal five different things about you that are “weird,” and then pass the tag along to five others.

See my blog post of yesterday and today to see all the fun I had with this one.

(I don't THINK you've done this one, and I thought you might have some fun with it.)

Bill stole my thunder regarding 'Prequalified' buyers. Sorry to hear of your set back, both on the buyer and your new place. Good luck.

Karyn, Karyn, Karyn. I used to be able to COUNT on you, but now...

I put in that vibrator remark just knowing you'd have a blast with it (the remark, not the actual vibrator), but you wimped out.

What is the world coming to?
