Over the past few months it's been difficult to find time for whirlingbetty, but now that my schedule is less hectic I'm back!
A month ago, my dream nearly came true. Again. I was all set to bid on a really cool Victorian house in my favorite neighborhood which is in the downtown area. That neighborhood is really expensive, but the house in question was in foreclosure and was scheduled to be sold at a sheriff's auction in the county courthouse.
I know how it is with foreclosures. It's risky to try to buy one, for many reasons. You must brace yourself for a roller coaster ride, even if things go your way.
Things did not go my way. The house which should have been mine was withdrawn from the sheriff's sale the day before it was to be auctioned off. And there goes another house which was almost mine.
