I’m gonna make this quick. I can’t write or talk about it without crying and getting stomach cramps.
We were supposed to be closing and moving TODAY. We thought our dream was finally coming true. But 48 hours ago the buyer’s lender decided that they would no longer give him the loan to buy our house unless he had a cosigner. We were told as long as he found a cosigner everything would be fine and we would be closing before the 29th.
Yesterday we waited to find out when the new closing day would be. At 4:45 p.m. I got the call I never expected to get. The buyer’s lender STILL denied him the loan to buy our house. We would not be closing at all.
I cried. I screamed. I got sick and vomited all of everything I had eaten that day and spent the day on the toilet. I lost three pounds. Another three pounds I could not afford to lose.
Our entire lives have been packed away in boxes. Waiting to go to a beautiful house that may never be ours.
Our mail was already forwarded. Address changed on numerous accounts.
Invitations for Brigham’s first birthday party have already been sent – with our NEW address of a house that now will set empty on his birthday.
Our dreams were shattered in an instant.
I’m not doing well. Not at all.
Today was supposed to be one of the happiest days of our family’s life. But instead, we are so sad.
Today my heart is broken.
