Maybe, but Maybe Not...

RV Resort (site #P37)
Roanoke Rapids, NC

This is not really our kind of cg but it’s all about location.  It’s just a few miles from my Mom’s house and not all that far from Gin’s parents in Rocky Mount.  It offers FHU and the ambiance of an open parking lot but it does have some nice amenities in the office building.  There’s a small pool and hot tub, billiards, and laundry.  It’s an easy on/off of I95 so it gets a lot of overnight travelers.  We went ahead and got a monthly rate since it was a better price than paying for the original two weeks we had planned.
RV Resort...Roanoke Rapids, NC

We’ve enjoyed spending time with the family and having many of them come over to see our new home.  It makes me happy because I can tell that they are excited for us.  It’s been very windy here the past few days but the sun finally came out and we reorganized the basement storage today.  Tawanda’s packed pretty tight now!

Some of you may be aware of our house closing situation and some of you know the most recent developments but to be honest, we don’t even know what’s about to happen.  Let me explain.  As most of you know, the sell was supposed to go to settlement in January but it was postponed for a week.  Our buyers were selling their beach condo but found out that their buyer had not gotten financing yet.  They wanted to give them a few days but that didn’t help.  It was postponed again for a couple of weeks but the sell fell through when their buyer was unable to get financing.  So we put the house back on the market and stayed in the driveway for a few days when we got back from Florida.

Imagine our surprise when our realtor called us one night a couple of weeks ago to say that our buyers checked on a few things and want to pay cash for our house and rent out their condo!  Our house seems to be a good fit for them and I know that they like the place a lot.  I think they will take good care of the place and enjoy it for many years to come.  It is close to their daughter’s house so there will be family gatherings there too.  Sounds great but

The settlement is scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday) but it has been delayed.  We got word yesterday that she was admitted into the ICU at an area hospital with a major medical problem.  Today she has been moved to a room so hopefully her recovery will progress smoothly.  He really needs a few days to discuss the house situation with his wife not to mention everything else they are going through.  They have been in my thoughts and prayers a lot today.  We certainly want to have settlement soon but also want the right thing for them too.

Life is what you make of it…enjoy each day because the future will soon be the past.

How understanding (not to mention patient!) you two are. There is a reason for everything and how you are handling this is noble! Good thoughts are being sent to you and the buyers! Miss you bunches!!

Sherry said...

Ditto what Tricia said. I really hope this works out for all of you and SOON!!

We want you to wander back down here with Tawader :-)

We're following along. We sure hope it all works out. You're so patient, but what else is there to do. Thanks for the information.

This has certainly proven the "deal is not complete until the check's in hand" saying or something like it. This episode is a cliff-hanger. I'm sticking around for the conclusion.

Hang in there. We wish her a smooth recovery.

Laurie and George said...

Wow, you are patient for sure. Everything happens for a reason, it will be revealed at some point. Prayers for them and you guys too!

Karen and Al said...

....and that is exactly why we didn't count on our closing until we had the check in hand. You just never know.

Hopefully for you, and them, her health issues will be resolved.

We are thinking of you and hoping all will work out. Thank you again for writing about your experiences in your blog. As "hope-to-be full time RVers" one day, your adventures are helping us to learn along the way too.

You guys put a whole new light on the phrase "all good things come to those that wait"!
How horrible for her and horrible for you. Well wishes to her and I hope you'll both be enjoying your dream very soon. Please keep us updated :)

Hot tub? What's not to like about about a campground with a hot tub?

We're so sorry to hear about the ups and downs you're going through with your house sale. We're pulling for you and hope that it gets straightened out once and for all.

We admire how you both are hanging tough!

How awful for the prospective buyers and for you. We agree with Lori that the reason for all the delays will eventually be revealed. Wishing all concerned the best possible outcome.

Nancy and Bill said...

You two are something special!! More concerned about the other person than yourselves. There is a reason for everything, but you have had more than your share of delay. Yet, you reach out to the other guy. We admire you both.

Hope everything is settle soon and everyone can move on with their plans. Thinking of all of you and hope all works out well for everyone.

You two are amazing and wouldn't expect anything else. This will all work out for you in the manner it's suppose to. Thinking of you and your buyers.
