And it wasn't even my birthday.
The lady from the bank called today, as promised, and said, “I have good news for you.” She'd worked out a plan that solves everyone's concerns and will allow us to put an offer on the house. I called Ice.... and then had several ohmygod moments.
I wanted to go tonight but J said no. He thought Saturday afternoon would be a much better time (“after lunch, I think”) and since today was his birthday and Ice is busy tomorrow night and Wednesday night, he won. Hopefully, there won't be any other offers before then.
The real estate agent that showed us the house originally is in Australia at the moment so we'll be dealing with a different guy from the same office. When I called him to set up an appointment for Saturday, he asked the same question the first guy did: “Do you have a house that you'll be selling?” And I gave him the same answer: “Yes, but we're not selling it yet.” I think that confused them slightly and I told Ice that I should have said, “Yes, but we're still auditioning agents.”
