Falling asleep last night, took forever. Staying asleep, impossible. Getting up, very difficult as I slept hard from 5:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m.
There are a few reasons for my insomnia. Last night one of the reasons was the offer I got on a property I just listed.
My ex and I flew to Wisconsin for my 50th birthday back in 2005. It was a great week. All seven of my siblings came up to the Island and roasted me in my parent’s dining room. It was hilarious. Something I will always remember.
While we were there we looked for a piece of property. He fell in love with one off the beaten path. It was all wooded, lots of hard woods, mostly oak. We bought it. I was thrilled to own a little bit of a place (born there) I will always love.
Out of the eight properties we owned, it was the only one I wanted when we divorced in 2012. Fast forward to now. I will never put a home on that property, I can’t afford it. I listed it last week assuming I wouldn’t get an offer for years. It would take someone with the same vision as my ex to consider buying it. I got a call yesterday from the realtor. He had an offer, cash, but lower than I wanted to go. The guy has adjoining property to mine and just wants it. He has a reputation for being an ass and a hard negotiator. Do I take the money and run or counter and risk losing the guy? That is my dilemma. I make the phone call now.
Oops, twenty minutes is up. Seems short but I was also scanning the signature pages sent by the realtor.
