I’ll try to make this short. My husband works for Edward Jones and he was in the running for an office in St. Louis, which would be great since both of our families are there. We currently live about 1 1/2 hours away. There is someone REALLY interested in buying our house and it would be a cash deal and we already know what house we want to buy, if DH doesn’t get the office in St. Louis. Everything was going great, until this past Sunday!! The couple whose house we want to buy was in our Sunday School class until they were transferred out of the area, but they were back in town for the weekend and we saw them at church. Well, they told us that someone else had just put a contract on their house last week. Bummer! It’s okay, we thought, because we still had a chance at an office in St. Louis. Nope! Got that call today that someone else got the office. DH was first in line for the office, but someone from Headquarters was stepping down and wanted to get back into an office, so that’s that! Now we don’t have a house to buy and we’re not moving to St. Louis and I’m just totally bummed. I think we’re just going to take our house off the market even though we have someone really interested. I know we could find another home in the area, but we have fallen in love with this particular neighborhood, but all the other homes are quite a bit out of our price range.
I keep trying to tell myself that this just wasn’t the plan for us, but I was so hoping it was!! I will now go drown my sorrows in some knitting!
