What a week it’s been. I would have had an update sooner, but have felt like crap for the past week, and have been spending most of my time in bed. The antibiotics are helping with the sinus infection, but at this rate, I’m just waiting for the rest of whatever I’ve got to take it’s leave.
Anyhoo. As for the house – we’ve technically sold it. However, we are waiting for an appraisal, which has been very slow in coming and has had us rather nervous because we can’t really do anything until we know what the appraisal is. Our Realtor at this point is concerned about it, so that has us worried as well. There have been a lot of really low sales in our area that are going to affect it, and each appraiser is different. We’ve heard instances where two appraisers have come up with amounts for the same house that differ 10K-20K, so… we wait. Quite honestly at this point with the way the housing market is going (houses being snatched up left and right and fewer houses coming on the market due to nervous sellers) we would be okay if the appraisal came back too low and we just stayed. It’s not ideal, but in realty, we could adjust our budget and save a lot more money so that in a year we wouldn’t be so dependent on selling this place first and could jump on the perfect house right away rather than all of this waiting and seeing and watching houses disappear from the market. Plus, it would be the perfect excuse to put in that wet bar and do a few things to increase the value a tad.
Aside from all that, Enzo seems to have grown up overnight. He just looks and seems so much older while I’ve been sick. The cutie would use his walker to come see me in the bedroom and it felt so nice to be missed by him. His daddy did a great job of taking over everything so I can rest, and I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to do so. I’m also glad that Enzo had such a good weekend – he was in such a good mood and had a great appetite. We also discovered he really likes Naked juices. I was drinking one and he was reaching for it, so I gave him a sip and he got a huge smile on his face and grabbed for the bottle again. Then when I sat down to play with ball him again, he got super excited, which I thought was because I had his new bouncy ball, but no, it was because he saw my bottle of juice when I sat down. Ha ha.
I’m looking forward to being my old self again.
