Fi nally got the other Mr. Fritz finished!! He's been on the waiting list for awhile,but now he's done in all his glory and listed on ebay!!!
The rug,hooked from one of Robin's,(Bird in the Hand Primitives)wonderful doodle E-pattern booklets,that you may have seen,since she so kindly showed both of my rugs on her blog.
THE HOUSE: Turns out that we have one more hoop to jump through. The investor (owner) of the development and his accountant want to meet us in person. The owner may or may not be there,because he winters in Florida.We call them Snow Birds here.
Anyhoo we have to wait till Tuesday,because the accountant is very busy since taxes are due Monday. Last Tuesday I did 2 hours of negotiating for the things I wanted on the owner's offer to us. Everything that I wanted was changed on the original papers,including an extra $900 that had been added to the purchase price. That's where I started because I had 2 papers of proof. I may not understand perfectly all the fancy legal words and the where as's and where fors,but I'm a pretty good talker and negotiator. I swear if they took out all the legal fancy words babble these 16 pages of the contract could probably be brought down to 4 or 5 pages. So Wed. we had to go back to the realtor's office to sign the corrected papers in front of a Notary. Then John got the bank check for our down payment and the Realtor came and picked it up. I didn't think we here anything Thursday,because the Realtors,a husband and wife team,take Thursday off. So when I got up Friday morning my heart was just pounding,NOT good for me!!!! So he called in the morning and said that they've "basically" accepted the offer but they want to have this meeting. He said,think of it as a job interview. Oh JOY!!!! I said,can we start packing?? He said,well I didn't say that. LOL He NEVER gives me an inch!!!! But in the papers the owner had put down that we would take possession May 1st. That's pretty close!!!!
This house was supposed to be mine almost 6 years ago and it's been standing there empty,since it was built waiting for me. The reason there's been so much hoop jumping to get it is because it's a land contract due to our bankruptcy we have to wait 2 years to get a mortgage,which will be this Fall.The last several years have been a tough road to hoe as you may have read on my previous older posts. BUT I've never lost my optimism and never will. This house will finally be a life for us!!!!
So wish us luck and prayers would be most appreciated!!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and you know I'll let you all know as soon as I know!!!!


  1. I'm sending good vibes and wishes for your house to close and the move-in to begin. We are in the process of listing our house and attempting a move north. It's been a dream of ours to get to Maine, and it just might happen. It's stressful though!
    Love the new bunny and your mat!

  2. Courtney I am returning those good vibes to you so that your move will go smoothly and SOON!!! It was actually my dream to move to Cape Cod. I used to go there twice a year to sell my work. But you never know what the future holds and as we both became too ill to even travel,that dream ended. But I will be very happy to move to this new home and life!!!
    So if it's your dream to move to Maine,you go for it as soon as you can!!!! And an extra little prayer for your dream from me.

  3. Sherry ~
    Good luck to you. May 1st is just around the corner.
    Pug hugs :)

  4. Everybody good luck with the real estate. I hope your dreams come true.Cheri

  5. Sherry,
    You deserve to have this happen and hope things go smoothly and quickly! I will keep you in thoughts and prayers!
    Keep on hookin' to keep the heart calm...... your bunny and little mat are as usual wonderful!
