Like Callie and Dawn, I’ve had a blog entry floating in my head for DAYS now. I just can’t seem to find the lump of time necessary to get it all out and down.

Humbug is the theme. I’m with Callie and Dawn on this Thanksgiving.

To recap a long, sordid, frustrating several weeks, our dream house is still an option, but a more complicated one. It turns out that we DO have to deal with the bank, not the home owners, which means more red tape and uncertainty. It also means frustratingly cryptic conversations between the real estate agent, Steve, and I. Its b...
