Wow, it only took 2 days!
I'm seriously feeling pretty good at this point. The deal falling through really knocked me out; I alternated between the fetal and prone position for the better part of the day Saturday. Then Rich made a comment that made perfect sense and brought me back to reality.
He said that this has never been about finding our dream home. This has always been about getting Ethan into a city and a school that can properly address his multiple needs. And that dream doesn't have to change just because we didn't sell our house quickly and easily.
Stupid House! Stupid Inspections!
He's right. So we're looking at apartments soon and are keeping our fingers crossed that we can find something with a 6 month lease option. That will give us plenty of time to look at homes and make a good decision while we wait for this home to sell. It's not what we had envisioned, but then what in the world ever is?
Ethan will go to St. Rita. We will move to Cincinnati on a timeline that ensures his arrival on day one of preschool. I will not lose my mind in the process.
