I've learned, often the hard way, that it is not wise to count your chicks before they hatch.
I woke up Sunday morning to see that I had missed early mass. Too much late late night reading, perhaps. Went on to get into some projects, and again looked at the clock to realize I had missed the later mass as well. Certainly not the end of the world. Prayer can take place anywhere. Oh, and that sense of impending trouble, well that should just put you on notice to pay attention.
Checked my phone to find a message from the buyer of Dad's house. The buyer was not going to go forward with the purchase. Seems the buyer's house would not come close to selling for what it had been bought for during a big bubble. Would I take less for Dad's house? Told the buyer, who is now not a buyer, I would have to think on that, but considering the amount of time & effort the estate attorney, the realtor, and I had gone through to get my brother to agree to the price we quoted, nope.
