:: :: further :: ::

usually a total optimist, i have to admit i'm not feeling optimistic about this room becoming my living room. with each day that passes the news on our condo back in ohio grows more grim. this house seems further and further away.

at first it was just that the buyer got something in late. then it was that the lender was slow. but today we found out that the lender will not close until repairs are made to the condo's roof, only repairing the roof is (a) not our responsibility and therefore (b) not within our control.

not being responsible for the roof is supposed to be one of the perks of condo ownership. suddenly, it's become this horrible, terrible thing. it's most likely going to make us lose this house (and the money we've spent on inspections, appraisals, radon tests, and our mortgage application).

late last fall we had a series of big storms in columbus that wreaked total havoc on everything and everyone. my realtor says there's a billion dollars worth of roof repair to be done in the greater columbus area. when our particular roof gets done is anybody's guess. god this sucks.

sucks sucks sucks.

That terrible windstorm! I hope the silver lining shows up sooner than later!

OMG. I am SO sorry. We had a house fall through due to some bs inspection red tape, and I was heartbroken. It worked out in the end for us (not getting the house), but I stomped around for days.

I really hope this works out. What a nightmare.
