It feels like I’m playing the waiting game with my life lately. Waiting for everything to come together so we can move forward.
After years of trying to negotiate a mortgage modification we decided it was time to move on. We have had the house up for short sale for what seems like forever (about 1.5-2 yrs). It was hard for us to accept the reality that our dreams were gone. That all of our dedication and hard work fell apart with this house. We applied for a loan modification every few months and it would turn into the waiting game. We had to wait for them to complete the process of evaluation. But we kept trying until we realized we were fighting to keep a dream that was no longer in our future, a lost cause. We have lost buyers because the bank keeps taking their sweet a** time to process everything. We get one approval to then hear we need another and another. So here we are waiting yet once again. So while I wait, my life is on hold. While I wait I feel trapped. I feel like I have been waiting forever to get my life back together. The reality is until we are free of this house we cannot move forward. And boy am I ready to start the next chapter of my life. So here I sit waiting…waisting precious time I will never get back…wondering if this wait will ever come to an end.
