"Challenges are what makes life interesting. Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful."
Yesterday we got a phone call from our mortgage company that wasn't what we expected. On Monday our new home was appraised and our loan officer contacted us when he heard the details from the appraiser Tuesday. Our great new home turned out to be a not so great home. The loan officer's exact words were, "The structure of the home was very poorly built." So we asked more questions and come to find out they were very cheap and built the home in a hurry and they said it definately is not worth the price we were paying. I was devasted. I asked myself how could something that felt so right be so wrong? I spent yesterday in tears all day just trying to understand it all. I loved the home and we went just Monday to measure for blinds and pick out the paint colors. After spending much of my afternoon talking with Jon and just thinking about what to do, we have decided to go back out and start house shopping AGAIN! So, we aren't buying that home but we will still find something. I know this all is happening for a reason and we are going to end up getting something so much better. It is just hard to get your hopes up and then taken right from under you.
