Welcome to My Breakdown

I am in the midst of a nervous breakdown. As you blog readers know, we have been in the process of trying to sell our house and build a new one for the past year. Well, the house we picked to build is one in the Parade of Homes here. We went into this deal assured that we were getting a great deal since builders want to display their best stuff for the public. Also we were led to believe that since we were in essence letting 1000's of people walk thru our home, we'd get a great price. Yeah, not so much.

So we're at the parade with Dad and Judy on Saturday night and we overhear what price our builder is telling people. It's $5000 less that what we're paying!!!!!!!! WHAT THE *&%*&?!? We were supposed to be getting the home for appx. $15,000 LESS than the "current market value"

I want to cry. I want to scream. I have been duped. How could I be so stupid?!? We have some friends going to the parade undercover for us to see what they can find out. One of them is a builder so he knows all the questions to ask.

I am now going to deposit Caroline and Amelia at VBS #2 for the summer. Hey, they are learning ecumenism. Is that a word? Love across the denomonations. Go hug a Baptist today.

don't pay the man Jen! and as for your current house.. we need to figure out some innovative new ways to sell that house... maybe like a carnival, a movie, or just saying it was once owned by Jason Priestly

that really sucks! let me ask my husband if there's anything to that - he's works for a builder. not that he's a business owner, but he may have some insight.
