Chris called the realtor when he got home, since I was far too distressed to do it myself. she said that she is going to have the work appraised and then get back to the sellers (and us, I assume) with the projected costs. at this point, a decision will be made as to who can repair what. my guess is that no-one can repair very much.
even if they do somehow find the funds to fix these problems, I am concerned that time may be an issue. here's the situation:
- our lease runs out October 31
- we need to give a month notice in order to get our security deposit back
- it is already September 14th
- I am unwilling to give notice when I don't even know for sure that I am going to be able to leave
I was really down earlier, but I am feeling a little better. Chris (of all people) reminded me that even if we do not have a house, we are still better off than a whole lot of people. and regardless of what happens, we are still awesome. these are true things, and words to live by.
we made potato soup for dinner last night, look for a blog entry w/ pictures and a recipe soon. and maybe I'll finally do the meat pie one, too.
