OK, this house is a beauty! Had DH and DSS come and see it. DSS loved it and his future room. DH had some complaints, but overall liked it. Of course he wanted to pave right over the little waterfall and little pond in the backyard and get rid of the hot tub (has it's own room! ("those things are such a waste") Honestly! How did I ever find this guy!!!
Now we're awaiting the gift-granting that was, then wasn't, then was, and now isn't coming from Uncle Mat. It's the down payment boost that we need to make the thing manageable. The next attempt not to ask for it (he won't do it if we ask) won't be until Tuesday, when Mom can have at him at lunch. He's truly playing with us. Has us like a cat after a mouse on a wire. This is a happy problem, I am truly grateful to be played like a Stratavarious....Seriously!
