Future Good News

I'm blogging from my Kindle which could prove interesting. My computer died a quick and sudden death a couple of weeks ago and I've been too busy to find its replacement. I had hoped to share some good news this weekend, but instead will tell you good news for the future: My mom is moving here from Albuquerque. She's building a home in a senior community. It will be so nice to have more family here. My ex's parents have been wonderful but I'm looking forward to not having to ask them for help...I'd rather just contact them because I like their company. My mom found a buyer for her home...a cash deal! They were supposed to close on March 7th and she'd move here on the 8th. Well, the flaky people backed out of the deal. It took them a month to make the decision,(they gave my mom a low ball offer, she met them in the middle and they originally turned it down...then changed their minds and signed the offer last week). I was supposed to find her an temp apartment this weekend...those plans are on hold...sigh...we are all crossing fingers that she gets another offer by the time her new home is built (mid July). I know it'll work out. Now if we can just keep anxiety at bay! I have more to write but am wiped. Off to bed for me. I hope to catch up on reading some blogs this weekend. I miss that, and I'm sorry for not checking in sooner. Love, Stephanie


  1. Good luck with your mom's house!! How do you blog from a Kindle?

    1. Oops...meant to say my Kindle Fire, Fran.

  2. The wheels are in motion, just be patient for it to all come together (because it will!). That is fabulous news and I'm extremely happy for you both!

  3. It's so good to hear from you. I think about you all the time. I just heard on the news yesterday that the real estate market is starting to recover. I receive a monthly financial update. My February statement said the value of my house has increased by $6.00. I'm extremely excited -- and a little sarcastic. I feel certain everything will work out for your mom.


  4. I hope your mom finds another buyer and the sale goes through smoothly.

  5. How awesome! My Mom's about 50 minutes away, and we joke all the time about how she abandoned us all. :)

  6. Dear Stephanie, such good news that your mom will be close. And the housing market is supposed to truly be on the upswing, so here's hoping that way before July she'll sell her home and be ready to move to an apartment until her new home is built. Peace.
