Are you familiar with the old song lyrics, "Why do you build me up, buttercup, baby just to let me down?" Well, right now "buttercup" is messing with us. We had a young guy come take a look at our house on Tuesday, then he brought his mom back Wednesday to see it because she's fronting some money for him. Our realtor talked to his realtor who made it sound like we'd be getting an offer today. It's nearly 9pm on Thursday and we don't have an offer yet. *sigh* I woke up this morning with high hopes and a bounce in my step. As of twenty minutes ago I've drowned my sorrow in hot fudge and coffee flavored ice cream. So, it's not all bad. According to his realtor he's going out of town today. So I guess we just twiddle our thumbs awhile longer.
On the job front: Mark had an interview with a cool company on Monday. Then, an interview on Tuesday with a healthcare company that has already invited him back for a three hour interview tomorrow. He went to a job networking deal this evening and got the scoop on a position at another awesome place. So all in all, I'd say things are looking up. Or at least progressing a bit. His final interview at another place is the 29th which seems like eons from now. I honestly think he might get an offer from another company before then. We'll see. There's a larger plan at work and I'm really working on my patience.
Yesterday I took Birdie to the little splash park with her friends while Mark stayed home with the baby. It is sort of handy to have a manny. Although, a steady paycheck trumps manny duties.
So build me up, Buttercup, don't break my heart :)
