Blue Blue Blue

Well we had our inspection today. OUCH not too fun. We found out a few things about the house that kind of made us think blue thoughts. We knew from the get go that it was going to be a bit of a fix-up. So we expected some things. I guess we should have expected more. The roof needs replacing, the furnace is done. So we would need a completely new furnace, the previous furnace is so old it's not worth fixing. The hot water heater is just about gone as well. We knew about the mold issue, but it's still not pretty. And there were some electrical issues. Along with a few structural concerns... on top of the fact that the house needs new carpet paint, molding, some new doors. So we came to the conclusion that it's probably not going to work out for us. We countered the bank and asked them to fix all the things that fha requires them to fix if we get an FHA loan. I'm sure that they will probably say no go. But then we'd have an out.

GRRRRR it's just frustrating. We are having such a hard time finding our house. We don't really know where to go from here. We feel like maybe a house isn't in our cards. But we're afraid that if the market goes back up one is never going to be in our cards because then we'd never be able to afford a house. It's just plain not fun at all.

Well, that's your update. I ruined my diet today drowning in my sorrows. I have to go turn off the timer because I already took out the cake....

I am sorry. It just sucks when you are super excited about something and it doesn't work out. Sorry I missed your call today - I was at work. I will try to call back tomorrow afternoon after we get home from our outing! Glad to hear that I am not the only emotional eater :)
