No progress

May 25th, 2012 at 06:07 am

My seller simply rejected my latest offer without a counter. Both the realtors seem pretty amazed by her obstinance. Especially since my offer is right on the money market-wise.

My realtor advised me to just let it simmer for a couple of weeks. He doesn't believe anyone else will make a higher offer. I am fine with that. Frankly, her lack of negotiation is making me less interested rather than more interested. There are so many other options out there, and I have plenty of time.

I went to my grandson's preschool graduation last night. They wore caps but not gowns, and sang a little song using sign language. Very cute. They also showed a slideshow with each child's dream of what he/she wanted to be. My grandson said "paleontologist." And he just might be -- he is obsessed with dinosaurs.

We went out to a casual restaurant afterwards. I spent $6.82, and brought home some roasted vegetables which I will use in fried rice. I expected to pay about $10 for dinner, so was glad to come in under.

I took a present, just in case, but no one else had presents, so it will go back in the Christmas/birthday box. (It was in the car so no one knew).

My $300 account is now down to $111. I'm figuring I will have to spend about $60 on gas this weekend. I still have to pick up the vacuum and the alterations, which are unknown prices, but I'm hoping the two together will come in under $50 and I will meet my goal.

    I guess selling a house is such a personal thing for many. An ego thing for some.

    While the seller ponders, perhaps you can push forward your moving process by reviewing every cupboard and drawer to decide what is worth the cost and effort to move and what could be sold, re-gifted or donated. If you don't love it, don't use it, it doesn't serve your needs...it can go.

    When we downsized from house to condo, I used those small stationary dots to identify what was going [green for items to keep, red to sell, yellow identified donation]. There are so many decisions needed during the moving period it was a relief not to fret over stuff. A few months after the move I was running nearly constant ads on Craig'sList & Kijjiji selling more items identified as not needed.

    My almost-two-year-old (daughter) is obsessed with helicopters. She says she wants to be "pilot heckotter in sky" and can name at least five different military helos. Who knows what these little ones will lead themselves into in the future? The world can always use good paleontologists and helicopter pilots, and it's good to have some insurance that they can dream big! Smile Jerry

    That's funny, Jerry. My son is training to be a helicopter pilot right now and loves it.
