And I promise I'll remove that sidebar soon :)
So we sold our place, and bought another unit in the same complex. Much, much smaller, though. The six of us have 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and no basement like we had before. It is stretching us to our emotional limits with each other, to put it mildly.
At least once a day I ask myself, "Why are we doing this?" Problem is we are so far in now, we're committed to doing something. We have to buy a house, so we're keepin' on with the one we're having built. Have they actually built it yet? No.
Have they even broken ground or starting digging a hole of any kind? That would be a no, also. But at this point we are sticking with it--although the thought has crossed my mind that the builder may be the one backing out. We've gone almost a week without getting return calls or emails from the realtor again.
I'm holding on to the hope that this is for our good for whatever reason. Well, I know it is. God leads me and has guided us a lot in this process. We're in it for a reason. I'll just keep going forward with a smile on my face!
