Our buyer fell through. I’m sure the right person will come along soon. Maybe not soon enough for John, but soon enough. I trust there’s a purpose to the delay. I plan to relax today. We had an up and down week last week, and we’ll have another up, followed by another up, and another up . . .
This time last week, we were between back-to-back open houses because of the paper’s mistake. Saturday we had 4 lookers as a result of the incorrect newspaper ad, none seemed very interested. Sunday brought 4 more lookers, from web listings, who were much more interested.
One guy wanted to make an offer that day. He didn’t quite understand the process. He said he was pre-approved for a VA loan. A couple came back Monday for another look. Their agent told us to expect an offer, but they changed their minds. We officially rejected the VA offer Tuesday.
Wednesday morning a lady looked at the house after seeing my Craigslist ad. She returned Thursday and made an offer. We countered and she accepted. She is the new Vice Provost at UI and moved to Moscow 6 months ago. We have an agreement to sign and get to the title company before an inspection Tuesday.
This may be John’s last week at UI!
from The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy
Infinite Intelligence attracts to me the buyer for this home who wants it and who prospers in it. This buyer is being sent to me by the creative intelligence of my subconscious mind which makes no mistakes. This buyer may look at many homes, but mine is the only one he/she wants and will buy because he is guided by Infinite Intelligence within him/her. I know the buyer is right, the time is right, and the price is right. The deeper currents of my subconscious mind are now in operation bringing both of us together in divine order. I know that it is so.

We’ve had an open house and a couple showings. Saturday a real estate agent brought a buyer, but we haven’t heard anything. She promised feedback.
We bought a toad Friday – a Mazda5. It’s called a compact minivan. We plan to tow it behind the RV. It’s the smallest vehicle 6 people can fit in. It needs to be cleaned up. John likes it.
I’m going to look up state fairs.
There’s a for sale sign in the yard. It’s not what I thought I wanted, but it works. Tonight we’ll bury the St. Joseph statue I bought.
I can’t believe how much stuff we had. The garage is almost cleared out. It’s getting easier to let stuff go. Yesterday I took a few things to a new antique/used stuff place. I gave the owner my old wood ironing board, some pint glasses, and my grandmother’s punch set.
I think just getting ready for this trip will curtail my shopping habits in the future. I don’t need every gadget, pan, or serving piece for every occasion. Renting can cost almost as much as buying something, but then I don’t have to babysit it for the rest of my life. I recently heard someone claim that shopping is an American recreation activity, and I’m starting to see that.
