So...we had an offer on our house in KS INSULTING offer at that! They offered us $100K less than our asking price and that offer is $30K less than we paid for it 8yrs ago minus the pool, the landscaping around the pool, the finished basement, the granite countertops, and the theatre room and its equipment. WOW...really???????????? Is this a JOKE? I know the real estate business is rough right now but seriously people...make an offer that shows you want the house.

After reading the offer that our realtor sent via email...the couple only qualify for a sales price of $350K. IF, and I repeat IF...we said yes to this insulting offer...these people couldn't afford the property taxes and upkeep of the pool. What are people thinking? We've had a mortgage crisis here in America and they would be just another chapter in that book if we agreed to sell it to them...WHICH WE ARE NOT GOING TO DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for listening to me vent! PS...the sewing room is ALMOST done...I might be able to purchase what I need for my design wall and cutting board area! WOOHOO!!!

July 4th...2009

Sarah and her pup arrived Thursday night. We enjoyed the evening on our little deck with a few margaritas!

I said good morning to Autumn on Friday!

Friday we went shopping and Saturday we spent constructing furniture and rearranging furniture! It was great to have Sarah's input...AND help!!!!

Saturday night we were invited to the rooftop deck, met some people in the building and watched the fireworks. It was pretty cool!!!

Sunday I made breakfast and got Sarah and Autumn on the road back to KS. It was fun to have them here...I miss them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
