So, it's been a while since I've posted last. We have been dealing with some dissapointing things lately and I haven't been in the mood to relive it through writing. Everything was going fine with our condo and the new build, I had everything all packed and 90% of it moved into storage or at my parent's house, we were all ready to sign off the condo and then we find out that the buyer's loan fell through. I couldn't believe it. I kept hoping it was all a big mistake and they mixed files or something, but alas it was true. So, our dreams of everything working out perfectly were dashed. Things aren't looking so good yet. We got an offer that day the loan fell through, but it was considerably low and even if we took it we couldn't afford to get the other house. So, we are trying to work with our builder to see if they can do anything for us and then we are hoping the right buyer comes along and wants to move in like in three weeks. It's a long shot, but I guess we need to have faith that things will work out for the best even if it means not getting this house. It's really sad because I actually started to get attached to it and was picking out paint colors and furniture, but I'll have to put a hold on that.
Josh has had the last couple of days off so we have been trying to make the best of them by getting out of the house. Yesterday we went to Rancho Sahuarita, way far away, just to look at model homes for fun. They had a huge water park and a bunch of smaller parks. We stopped by one park and they had some neet equipment. Sydney loved it. I actually went on a few slides myself. Any excuse to act like a kid again. It sure is getting hot here though. I am thankful for air conditioning. Later that day we went to Josh's parents and Josh and Sydney swam in the pool. I just bought a new swimsuit for her that was a little small even though it's a size 2T! She looked so cute though. I have tons of photos.
Today we decided to take Sydney to the zoo. It is small here, but I really like how it's laid out and there is ample shade, which is necessary for Tucson. Sydney seemed to have fun. She doesn't do so good in the mornings before her nap, so she gets a little grouchy, but luckily they sell popcorn at the zoo and that kept her good the rest of the time.
Well, hopefully we will get some good news soon about our home situation. Our new house is just about complete. They landscaped the front yard, so all they really have left it the flooring and the upper cabinets. Hopefully they still belong to us because I really love the cabinets.
