Offer

We got an offer on our house in Denver. I am not sure how this will all pan out. They offered 25K less than it's listed for and they want us to pay closing costs. Yah, no. We countered so we'll see. I know we are going to have to pay out of pocket and that makes me sad. I feel like I have to pay someone to take my house. Our beautiful house that Seth was born in. I suppose we could just keep making mortgage payment after mortgage payment on a house we don't live in anymore. It turns out that the guys (Yes, a gay couple want our home. It seems almost perfect, minus the we're-getting-screwed part.) who put an offer in are the same ones who tried to buy the house back in the fall. Hopefully it will work out this time.

I'll keep you all posted...

Happily some of our yard work was completed today. It looks fabulous. With our yard being soooo big and quite frankly with us being so lazy we paid to have our flower beds mulched with cedar.

The back yard still needs to be done but with the stupid play structure on it's way I figured we should wait.

Ah Ellen... has it become the play structure of resentment?

The front looks really really good!

As for the house in Denver, well, we are paying the mortgage on a house we will never live in again, so yeah... it's a club with members you already like...

Well congrats on an offer, albeit a crappy one! Send them my way if they need Homeowner's Insurance. :) I hope they accept your counter and you don't get totally screwed.
The front yard looks fantastic!!

Front yard looks great! A gay couple is perfectly suited to the Denver house - the neighborhood and lack of yard ought to work for them.
