Nothing's ever easy

The house we were hoping to move into just 9 days before the arrival of Baby Plum is slipping through our fingers.

The seller has been awful from day one and because of the seller's stupidity, the contract will have to be extended.

The seller wants us to pay her mortgage on her other house, because of the extension. Even though it was her stubbornness and stupidity.

We haven't looked at any houses since we bid. I don't know if I'm up for all of the hassles again.

I spent yesterday crying and today I was way-too impatient with Little Elvis. I sincerely believe the crazy stress of my old job lead to the scariness with Little Elvis' birth. I don't want to put Baby Plum through that.

But we've already imposed so much on my parents, and I don't want to do that anymore either. And the whole bid/contract/house-hunting thing will take at least a couple of more months.

I just wanted us to have this nice little home that we could call our own and could make our own. I have no idea what to do now, but all I can manage is to cry.

Our poor realtor is doing all she can, but I just don't even know if it's worth it anymore.

My immediate reaction is that if you are running into bumps (that seem unreasonable) stop and reexamine. Is this the house you really want? Or the house you want right now? I am sorry this is one more thing to add to your stress. At least consider, you are living with people who LOVE you!! (IMPOSE IMPOSE!!! Afterall, you are giving them another grandchild!) I hope tomorrow is better.

I agree with Biscuit. If it’s meant to be it will be. If not . . . We had to let go of the house we put our first bid on before we found the one that we are in. And it too was over something silly. The seller may be trying to take advantage. Just remember that in this market, it should be you that has the upper hand. And to breath and enjoy your time with Little E!

Ugh! Home-buying has got to be the biggest and most stressful hassle in the world. I am so sorry you're going through this. I've been there (I'm still there), so I know what you're going through. Hang in there.
