So I've got good news and bad news...bad news first..
Marker (David's family's cat) had to be put to sleep this morning. He recently suffered from colon cancer that was removed but recently again stopped eating and began having breathing/liver/heart problems. He will be missed.
*moment of silence for reflection*
And the good news, or rather the fantastic news is...the realtor called me earlier and said that the bank came back and said the price we offered (20k below asking) is fine, the only thing they changed is that we have to have the inspection done in 9 days instead of 15 which isn't a big deal at all. I'm so happy and so excited. The only flaw in this is that there is another offer, so we'll have to get the papers signed like asap so the other person doesn't take it from us. Keep your fingers crossed!!!!!
