Real estate sucks. We didn't get the vineyard house. * sigh * BUT I have closure and I feel ok now. About an hour after was all said and done, we found out that the quiet little street was moments away from oodles of development -- we're talking 100 new houses. Yeah, good riddance to that.
Time to pursue our backup house, which is actually our original no. 1 choice. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for us.
