One Step Forward, 1,000 Steps Back...

The Good: We made an offer on a house. It's not a great house, but it is a spacious house where I will be able to get 2 rooms and spread out a bit for the duration that we're renting there.

The Bad: The mortgage broker for the house they foreclosed on decided to oh so kindly let us know we've got 2 weeks before they are putting the house up on the market, by mail. He never gave their lawyer advance notice, or even discussed it with them. The time table to move has advanced significantly - without any security that there's a place for all of us to go.

The Not So Bad: I can always move in with my father. He'll take me. It's not ideal, but I have a home. I'm secure in that much, though I sincerely do not want to go back to the way things were. He's good in small doses, not large ones. I absolutely love him to pieces, but I know if I move back in there he won't look past the fact that I'm his baby girl. He tends to have blinders to the fact that I'm a grown woman now. And, I'm not sure I can stand the constant reminder of memories that house holds for me with regards to my mother.

I also have an offer of living space from very good, very dear friends of mine who are also considered like family, which I'm not casting aside. It's there in the back of my mind as something that's an option. I love them very dearly for making the offer.

The Ugly: There is none, for now. Hopefully it stays that way.

So, for all of you out there keeping an eye on things, please oh please - really please - keep your fingers and toes crossed for us that we get this place. I need every ounce of good karma that I have stored up over the last four years to be used for this, not just for myself, but for Nancy and Scott too - who are considered part of my extended family now; the kind that you get to choose to have in your life as opposed to the one you're born to.
