Wowza. It's been almost 3 weeks since I've added to my blog. I didn't mean to abandon it. Life just got busy and I never had the time. So I'll put one big post to make up for those lost days.
My house is still for sale. Sounds like a broken record, doesn't it? We had an offer come in last week during Spring Break. We did not even consider it. We did not even counter. We just rejected it. These crazy people offered us $65K LESS than the asking price. Now I understand offering a low ball bill to start the negotiating process. But we're tired of the insulting bids. This was offer #4 for us and we have no patience left. They could walk away angry or they could come back with a reasonable offer. They walked away mad. Their loss.
So our house has now been on the market for 320 days. THREE HUNDRED TWENTY DAYS. We never dreamed it would take this long. Nothing is selling in our price range. I talked to a teacher at work today who told me that nothing in that price range is selling around here either. Houses with asking prices of $200K or less are selling. Houses with asking prices of $1 million are selling. But all the houses in between? They are not moving.
That did not make me feel any better.
For entertainment (mine) let me add some photos of things I've been doing.
"That will be $236.00" Uh....... WHAT? I don't think so. That much? For sandals? For a 12 year old? I don't have shoes that cost that much. We did not get them. She can get flip flops at Target.
I don't know why I didn't check the price.
But that wasn't the craziest thing.
This is Dallas, TX. Home of Pres. George W. Bush. He lives nearby.
So just in case.............
The tables on either side?
We didn't see George. Or Laura.
But we did eat buffalo burgers, turkey burgers, chicken fingers and french fries.
On Saturday we visited the Dallas Arboretum. Wow.
Tomorrow I am going to the dentist.
I have a tooth that maybe needs a root canal. Or maybe needs to be pulled.
I'd rather not do either.
So I'm returning to a dentist that has spared this tooth before. Take another x-ray. And get his opinion.
I wish I were on twitter so I could tweet about my day tomorrow.
And I'm also picking up my dog.
