My DH, TC, is on his way home! I'm so excited about that. He left Michigan this afternoon, will be home sometime tomorrow.
More good news -- we sold the house. While TC was busy with the plumber, realtor, heating guy, etc., a neighbor came by to look at the house -- and made an offer!
It was a very poor offer, but after quite a bit of haggling, TC talking to him, them both talking to me on the phone, we finally struck a deal.
It's pitiful what that house is worth, but let's face it -- we have ZERO INTEREST in trying to fix the damn thing up from 1,000 miles away. We could put $20,000 into it and it might be worth $35,000 when we're done. Who knows?
So we sold it, rock bottom, as is, bottom line. We had to take another land contract. Can you believe the house went for $27/square foot? When we bought it in 1992 we paid $42/square foot. What's happened to real estate in industrial southern Michigan is absolutely PAINFUL.
But my DEAR HUSBAND will be back tomorrow, and I am so happy about that. I've got a bad week ahead and I need his steadying presence. Maybe next week I can get back on track.
