patience is a virtue.

"The two most powerful warriors are patience and time"

Today I must practice patience. 
The past few weeks have been exhausting for both of us...and it seems the waiting will continue into next week.  We've been on the lookout for a house since arriving in Fort Wayne.  Though we didn't get out act together and start seriously looking at homes until February, things seemed to fall into place rather quickly.  We looked at a few houses the last few weekends in February, liked one and went back the first week of March.  While we thought it was "the one" we reconsidered due to the amount of work that would have been necessary before being able to move in.  A week later, one of the first houses we'd really liked came back on the market after an offer fell through.  This particular house had been in the back of our minds for months.  So during the first week of April we put in a bid.  Played the counter-offer game for a bit until we finally settled on a price with the seller.  (*a good deal if you ask us*)  
Unfortunately, through the process of the inspection, we learned that there were some major issues with the house.  Instead of walking away, we continued to pursue the house - which we'd fallen in love with!  Now, nearing the end of May, we have yet to close.  It seems we can't catch a break, something always comes up at the last minute.  So, once again we wait....
