So three banks and several months later, we are finally going to build our house. We got word today from the bank that we will actually be building a house. It just doesn’t seem real, but Philip assured me that is it REAL this time. After having laid dormant for so long, just waiting and waiting, I even got used to the idea that we might not be building.
This journey has been an emotional rollercoaster. We had gotten our hopes up and then we were crushed and squished. Our patience was running so thin, we even created options just in case we weren’t able to build. Maybe we could change the plans or maybe we should buy a house…..we went so far as to even print out viable options. While very very tempting, none of it seemed right. Without much of a choice, we waited.
Philip called me today during lunch and said he got good news. However, I didn’t jump up and down with joy, I got upset. I blamed my terrible microwaved Lean Cuisine bowl lunch, but really it was because I didn’t know how to react. I was so overjoyed before, it was like I ran out of it. When I could get my words out to Philip, I cried and cried. I just couldn’t believe it!
Now the next step is signing paperwork – I will be much happier once we do that part!
