Can I cry yet??

OK ARE YOU READY FOR THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Because of our 'crappy' buyers to be, our lawyer/friend advised us to keep showing the house and if we got another offer, maybe it would be better. Our mall has FREE movies all summer and I decided to take Emily to see Curious George. As I am walking into the mall at 9:30am my hubby calls to say someone is coming at 4:30pm to see the house. OK, now my house isn't ready to be shown, we've been packing and well relaxing since we hadn't thought we'd be showing again. So after the movie I had to get home and clean. Yes back to windexing the windows and shining everything up. Well as I said before they were supposed to come at 4:30pm and said they would wait outside if I wasn't gone yet to give me a few mins...I am walking around my house cleaning in my tshirt and UNDERPANTS (I was hot). At 3:25pm as I am vacuuming the stair going upstairs. Emily comes running upstairs and says the people are here, they need you,so I throw on my pants and go to see them all sweaty and now I have no idea if my pants are buttoned or zipped-who the hell knows. MIND YOU!!! the house is mid cleaning, emily is cleaning the cats litter box bathroom/ mid mess so it looks bad-real bad litter box sitting on toilet so she could sweep, I didn't sweep the kitchen floor yet, there is a garbage bag in the kitchen, stools on the counter, dishes out. OMG I am freaking out. Then they are asking me all kinds of questions, I apologized and all the time I am super PO'd at Dave/friend/realtor........ or was this realtor just a big fat LIAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If this lady buys the condo I want half the commision!!

I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO PO'd!!!!!!!!!!!! Will this EVER END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well at least my house is shiny,and clean...

All this time I was taking my cats with me so I wouldn't have to worry and they were fine, one hiding and one hanging by the couch.

**Update 4:04pm**
They made an offer, $10k less than asking but the negotiation begins, first we need to find out if we can walk away from these other fools and then when does this new buyer want to close and what can we get her a bit higher. We're almost willing to lower the price a bit more if it can guarantee a smooth closing!!!!

Oh and I seriously want half the commission.....

Sorry it made you cry but imagining you hurrying to get your pants on and all the crazy things going on in your house helped me smile today. So sorry it's such a mess, I swear it is always a mess when you sell your house. The people who think it's going smoothly are usually the people who get to a day before closing and then it falls through. My husband works in title so he is the one who does the closings and I hear crazy stories all the time. Hopefully you've had enough chaos and it can all go smoothly now. I'll close this book of a post now! Good luck!

I think you would have gotten an offer for the full price if you would have left your panties on!
Congrats though :)

That stinks, you should get half the commission. Hopefully someone will close soon and it will all be over.

Ugh. Moving and selling sucks. I hope that this works out for you all!!!!

See? Even if the mess was bad as you say (I'm sure it wasn't horrible!) they still want to buy! DEEP BREATH!

And I did giggle at the thought of you vacuuming in your tee shirt and undies with people trying to come into your house. I've done stuff like that before (cleaning half naked, or in a shorty bathrobe with NOTHING else on)and had friends/neighbors knocking on my door...talk about scurrying for clothing! LOL
