I think the worst thing about making an offer on a house is waiting for the seller to respond to your offer. We were hoping to hear something yesterday, but no such luck, so with a bank-owned property, I guess we’re looking at Monday for a reply…actually I’m not sure how that will work, since the offer was set to expire on Nov. 13th, and that’s a Saturday…hmmm, I suppose the realtors can figure that out.
So we’ll need to keep busy to keep our minds off of it all weekend. Shouldn’t be too hard, since there’s lots to do. K’s school is playing in the state championship for whatever group they’re it, so we’ll probably go to their game tonight. It’s very interesting – they play a 6-man team on an 80 yard field. Here I thought that was a recent invention to accommodate smaller schools, but my dad (who’s 88) told me that he played on the same kind of team when he was in high school.
We’re also planning to go spend Thanksgiving week at my sister and brother-in-law’s farm in Monroe County, AL, so there’s a lot of getting ready to do over the next few days. We’ll just keep busy while we wait!
