houston, we have a contract

We got the official bank acceptance of the short sale offer today. And they pushed back the foreclosure date (and closing deadline) from 8/31 to 9/10. And then our realtor called us back to confirm the bank has taken foreclosure off the table completely until the deal closes. It almost sounds too good to be true. We're still going to shoot for closing by the 31st just in case. I would be jumping for joy right about now except I've decided this short sale thing is so unpredictable the whole thing could come off the rails at any time, so I'm trying to keep a cool zen type attitude towards it. If it happens, then great, and if not we'll be happy where we are.

For what it's worth, Roan has declared she wants to move into the new house now. And she wants to start her new school tomorrow. And she cannot possibly wait until Christmas to meet the new baby. I guess all the anticipation is starting to get to her. At least she is revealing herself to be remarkably adaptable.

Oh and she and Arwen are in open disagreement about the sex of the baby. He mentioned in the car that he thinks the baby is a boy. "No Daddy!" she declared, crossly. "I think the new baby is a baby sister! It's not a boy!" Let's hope they don't come to blows at Thursday's appointment.

Tomorrow is the home inspection. It will be interesting to see if anything major comes up.
