Still Searching

Someone else put in a bigger offer on that house I really wanted the same time Mom and Dad put their offer in. We're all bummed, but too tired to sit around and pout about it. Mom and Dad are going to go look at a couple more houses tonight. One of them is a very new listing and the agents in Mom's office went to look at it today and they were all talking about how perfect it would be for Mom and Dad. Mom has seen all the pictures for it and she really wants the kitchen in it. We'll see what happens.
Mom has been really busy at work because the receptionist has been sick. Mom hates answering phones and stuff like that. She likes being in her office where nobody comes to visit her and the phone doesn't ring very much.
That stupid inspector is supposed to come back to day to do a mold test. He thinks we have asbestis (no clue how to spell that) and mold. Mom said since the guy didn't have to come in the house, we could stay home and I could bark at him as much as I want. Mom also said the move vicious sounding I am, the better. She didn't realize there were so many people that hated that guy. Any time she says his name people start telling their stories about him and how much they don't like him. Dad went under the house and the suspicious thing that was supposed to be asbestis was carpet wrapped around the pipes with some old tape on it. Obviously the guy didn't go very far underneath the house. Dad couldn't find the supposed mold. There was some white dust stuff that if you were cross-eyed and maybe drunk, it might look like mold. The appraiser is supposed to be coming this week sometime so that means we're going to Grandma's. Just thinking about everything makes me tired.
I think I see a white van pulling up in front of our house. Mom said he will be driving a white van. I have to go do some major barking and yelling at him. Keep your paws crossed for us!!

Im sorry you guys got out bid. What a drag. I hope this new place is as good as everyone is making it sound.

So did you give that old creep a good lung work out? I hope he doesn't screw up your house sale.

Bark loud and long at that old inspector that doesn't know his head from his back side.

Hi Hilary and Kaos,
Thank you for your kind words of support during my recent miscarriage. I totally understand what you mean when you said that you have a hard time seeing or being with kids, esp babies. I thought I was being weird but now I know I am not alone. It's really tough but someday soon, I hope that both you and I will be holding our very own bundle of joy.
And for now, I hope you find your dream home!

Love,
Huskee's mom (Shane)
