Ultimately, the bank's agent dragged her feet getting the paperwork to us to sign to get the house under contract, another person made an offer, and we ended up losing out on this wonderful deal and lovely little homestead. The entire situation was a bit crushing and more than a little difficult to write about before now.
Not being one to drag my feet in misery, I've already been working on some new projects, taking my mind off of the whole ordeal. Hopefully I'll have some more posts up soon. Ones with a bit less heaviness. :)
Onward and upward to a new week!
