We got it again!!
Hahaha! Man, life is strange!
Remember THIS? We got this beautiful house, it was in the ward, it was just the right size, it had new carpet and paint, it was exactly what we wanted.
Well, we lost it, remember that?
They realized there was a problem with the foreclosure, so they had to take the house back to figure it out.
Last Tuesday, the listing agent called our realtor and told her the house listed again. It technically went on the market on Wednesday. In my opinion, I should've just gotten it automatically, but we didn't. We had to drive in the scary fresh snow to sign papers in order to put an offer on the house again.
On Saturday, our realtor called and told us we got it again!! How crazy is that?!
The Lord definitely works in mysterious ways. I doubt I'll ever understand His methods. I do think that we were meant to learn something from the entire experience. We were meant to understand just how wonderful this house is. How great it is that the roof is new, the carpet is new, there isn't mold, and the only fixer-upper is really just gutters all the way around.
Oh my goodness, I'm sooo excited!! 2012 is going to be great!!
Closing date is scheduled for February 18th. Hopefully we will make it to then with the house still "belonging" to us. We're definitely praying that we get to really get the house this time!
I'm already decorating the interior. Every day. Almost all day. :)
That's how it's supposed to be. Not sighing sadly whenever someone brought up the house. Not worrying about mold. Not being bothered by a busy street. Not trying to figure out where we'd buy new toilets, how we'd put in tile, how we'd update the kitchen.
I think the other houses we'd put offers on were great. They were houses that could have worked, but I'm glad this one is back.
When we told the Bishop on Sunday, he said, "See? The Lord listens to a Bishop's prayers!"
