The football of life has once more been pulled away. lol We lost our bid on the newest house, too. Sadly, the low prices have also brought about a ton of new buyers (especially with the President's first time buyer tax incentive) which means competition is fierce. This is great for the economy but a pain for those of us just looking for a frickin' house. Still, we're going out to look at ten more tomorrow. I'm not even going to post about the bids at this point ... only if we get one accepted.

Happy birthday to a number of my LJ friends. I will greet you properly when I'm back. Right now, I'm crying in my diet root beer a bit. lol But we rise to fight another day.

P.S. I definitely need a melodramatic sarcasm avatar. Sorry to have sounded so dark in this -- I definitely have the nicest friends. We're disappointed, of course, but we're fine. I have a gallows humor with my view of the world and that doesn't translate well in pure text.

Sorry to hear that Melody, but the perfect house is going to turn up for you soon.

I think you need to be a little bit more detached about it. There are probably a hundred houses coming up for sale out there that would be perfect for you. Just think of your bids as lottery tickets, it doesn't actually matter which one wins. One will eventually.

Thanks, my friend, but I was mainly "speaking" tongue in cheek and melodramatically with the Peanuts stuff. I am a bit disappointed, of course, but I roll with the punches. It's not possible for me to be detached from anything, I'm afraid. lol It's part of my nature. But I do appreciate the kind words.

My real estate agent was just comparing the process to shooting craps. I much prefer your lottery comparison. lol

Thanks, my friend.

I dunno about the guy who's showing us houses, though. He has a sign on his little stand that says "The Realtor is In". I think we should have checked his license. ;)

Good grief!
I've lost out on some apartments I really liked, and I know how frustrating it is to have to keep looking and looking. But I have faith you'll find someplace that's just right for you.

Also, I've sent you a little something that might be what you need. (No, it's not a house. *g*)

lol -- that was just what I needed! Thanks! When I get a chance, I'll add it to my avatars.

As usual I've been lurking in the shadows and following your progress with your house hunt! I'm sorry to hear that you lost another bid but hey that just means that the right house out there still waiting for you :-)!

Hey, DW!!! I've been wondering how you were. How did school come along? A happy belated birthday, too!

I'm sure we'll find the right one eventually.

Good luck with the house hunt! Sorry this one didn't come through. A friend went through the same process last year - it took her six months, but she finally got the house (with the pool) that she wanted.

We're only at almost three months now but it's frustrating enough already ... especially in this market.

We think we've found another couple of possibilities, though. Thanks for the good wishes.
