Unusual day… Day 1151 11JAN12

Today turned out to be a rather unusual day full of surprises that were for the most part good things. Out of the blue yesterday the realtor that we had worked with last year trying to short sale the house called and said she might have an investor interested in purchasing our house. This morning she came over with said investor and they took a look around and then left. This was a particularly odd day for this to happen since this afternoon we were to meet with the Judge to set a sale date for the house. So Renee and I got dressed and headed to the court house to attend the hearing, we sat down at the table with the attorney from Bank of America and the judge and we told him about the potential to possibly short sale the house and I asked for an extension of the sale date which the judge granted immediately. This gives us another 90 days to try and work something out with the house and the possibility exists that we might be able to lease the house from the new owner if everything works out. We left the court house a little frazzled but relieved that we have a little extra time to prepare. When we got home we got a call from the realtor to let us know that the investor had actually made an offer on the house and she was headed over later to start the paperwork. We don't know what the offer is yet and we still have a long way to go to get the bank to approve everything along with a ton of details that have to be worked out but it is a start. If all of this had not happened we would have lost the house by the middle of next month, now we have until at least the end of April. So a day that we have been dreading actually had a bit if a silver lining for our family. We will keep our fingers crossed and hope that things start working out for us, sure would be nice...

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Awesome news for the Gandy Gang today! God's Angels are hovering over all of you and showering you with Blessings. Another extension, a possible sale, possibility of being able to stay right where you are, and approval for a trip to Camp Sunshine! All in one day. Although it's been a pretty crappy run for all of you it looks like things are finally turning the corner. I am so happy for you.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
