Old Tom nailed it in his song, The Waiting.
The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part
And now, as an ode to Tom, we are going to give you an update on where we are at and the battle that one might face while waiting. We don't want to be too petty, here. Nor do we want to be doing the kind of clever verbal gymnastics that turn people from readers to non-readers, but we intend to play within the written landscape of this blog and update our readers at the same time.
The waiting actually is the hardest part. And that is where we are at right now. We are waiting to see if the bid we made on a property is accepted. That bid is near the upper reaches of what we are willing to pay for that particular property. Excuse the coyness of this post, but we won't say which property or even which auction service we are talking about right now. You may be saying, "But, I need to Know," but we won't tell -not at this point. We will say that we are waiting for December because December is going to tell us so much.
We are also waiting on the auction of the Moncure land. December 8th. Will we be successful? Stay tuned and come on back, ya hear? We may be packing up the plantation and moving on after that auction. BTW, it is good to be Rebels and to be on the other side of the fence in the auction world. We have purchased a few auction properties in the past. It is now nice (at least on paper) to be the ones doing the auctioning. Quick side note: Contact our Realtor here if you want more information on the actual auction.
And we are on needles and pins waiting for the Moreland property to sell. We know that we are priced correctly, we know that the area is seeing rapid gentrification, and we know that the quality of this Box Bend transformation is second to none. But the waiting for some good souls with Southern accents to walk through the door and say, "We're home!" has us free falling. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.
Not that we are sitting around like some refugee adrift on a raft of our own making with nothing to do but wait. It is only that the waiting sucks. On the contrary, we are planning for our next move. We are looking for that mythical room at the top of the heap. And we have made the mantra of "I won't back down!" a personal rallying cry. We are making plans and backup plans because we don't want people to say, "You got Lucky." We want people to say, "Wow! I need to know what you are doing, here." We want to help people by first being that example of success in this sphere. That requires planning and action. (More action than planning, by the way.) But in truth, at the end of the day, no matter how much waiting we do, and no matter how hard it is to wait, we truly are still in the process of learning to fly.
