Tick, Tock, We Wait By the Clock

We chose the house we loved.
We decided what we wanted to offer.
We made that offer.
They home seller made a counter offer.
We discussed the counter offer.
We countered their counter.
They came back with the same counter offer as before.
Now we working the numbers and asking for a little more detail on a few items.

All the while the clock ticks, ticks, ticks... doing what it does best. Moving through time without a care in the world; while we wait to find out what our next step will be. I'm not sure what is more nerve racking, trying to figure out how much house we can afford; or the endless waiting that seems to be involved in with both selling and buying a house.

They call this the American Dream!!! Seems more like a NIGHTMARE!
