Things can hang by a thread.
Someone’s life, a relationship, an ecosystem, the love between two people or even our pets when they become ill.
Life is fragile, tender and fleeting. So are physical things like hand-blown glass objects. Some business deals can be touchy too. Often Real Estate deals are like this, not over until you really move in.
My most recent one was like that as it fell through. The inspection showed multiple problems, some of them serious. Walls coming down due to water damage and mold etc. No thanks! I’m not up for that at this stage of the game. Too many other places to see.
In fact I’m ready to look at some now if the agent would ever show up. It’s pouring out now. Ugh.
But I’m hopeful. No lake view I’m afraid, which I’m sad about, but I couldn’t risk the issues.
Later…. Saw a very nice one that was much nicer than the first inside, but without the view. But the back is not bad and I can beautify. Everything is up to date and new, no obvious damage like the other one and very bright.
Offer in, awaiting the counter.
Everything hangs by a thread. In the grand scheme of importance, buying a home isn’t as critical as a life as there is always another one to buy.
But I would sure love to wrap this up.
