Bad News

I always hate to share bad news on my blog. However, we got news yesterday that the financing for the house fell through. It isn't sold. :-( We were hoping to get rid of that headache but now it's back and time is short. We need prayers for a miracle.

Good news is that Jordan got a great progress report. One A, one B+ and two Bs. That's great for Jordan, as he never did well in elementary or middle school. He is certainly enjoying high school.

In other news, I had a bad touch of the flu yesterday. One moment I was fine and the next I was really quite ill. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I slept about 4 hours throughout the day and am still feeling weak this morning. It's going to be a busy day so I need to find some energy. LOL

Hope all is well you. Take care of yourself and keep your hands well washed if you are out in public. Carrying hand sanitizer isn't a bad idea. The flu season is upon us.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear this! Hope the right buyer finds you soon and I hope you feel better quick!

  2. There is nothing more frustrating than having a house sale go bad. Don't worry, all shall be well soon.

    Yesterday the clerk at WalMart was acting very strange. I asked her if she was okay and she said she was sick. I quickly backed away and said go home. She stated that she had already missed two days of work and couldn't afford to miss another. So glad we've had our flu shots but regardless, people need to stay home when they are sick. If Ron had been with me I would have panicked. He sure can't afford to be around bugs or viruses right now.

  3. Prayers going up. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  4. Hi Mary,

    I so rarely get on blogger anymore, but I did this evening. Hope your house sells soon. That is great news about Jorden's grades. Way to go, Jordan! I hope you feel better soon, Mary. I had the flu shot, but came down with bronchitis a few weeks ago. It was miserable. I carry hand sanitizer with me, and use it a lot, these days.

    Take care, Mary. Hugs and prayers coming your way.


  5. Praying that you'll feel better real soon and that your house sells quickly. Jordan's school report was good. I was always satisfied with A's and B's for my children. C's and D's definitely got my attention and they were urged to pull those grades up.

  6. Sorry to hear about the flu. I took my flu shot on the first and hope it does the trick. Wishing you better news on the house. Peace

  7. So sorry about the house........ You are talking about the one that you just moved from? I am so sorry to hear that..... I will pray about that tonight..... sorry to hear you were sick..... I have had something very strange.. Started with a bad headache... then for the next 4 days just achy and low grade temp.... Not really sick but no energy and slept a lot..... much better today...

    I am just amazed that it is now the holidays again... I do not have a clue what I did this past year....... it has escaped me..... Good for Jordan..... are you still living close enough for them to come and visit? I know that they love their grandma........

    Love ya girl...... miss the good old days of blogging........

  8. Hi Mary! I will be praying that your house will sell and everything will go through this time! I know this has to be very stressful for you all.
    Good for Jordan making such good grades! Sorry you have been sick! love and hugs Carolyn

  9. Oh Mary, that's such rotten luck that the house didn't sell after all:-( Fingers crossed that someone else comes along and it does sell!! I can well imagine how anxious you are to not have to worry about it anymore.

    Yeahhhh Jordan, glad to hear that he also had a great report and that he's enjoying high school:-)

    Oh dear, 'tis the season for the flu and colds all right. I do hope you feel better real soon and that it doesn't drag on. xoxo

  10. Dearest Mary...
    I do hope you feel better soon.
    The house sale fell thru? Oh my. I'm sure that a 'taker' will come along in a short time. It's so frustrating. Especially the way the economy is these days; world wide.

    Congrats to Jordan., you can log in and change your template whenever you like. With this time change, I had an early rise this morning and finally found time to get over here and change it for you....just log in to your blog...go to page elements....the 'add a gadget' html script just below the text 'MARY'S WRITING NOOK' on it...go to cutest blogs on the blog site...choose your layout [3 columns are the best choice since the layout is much wider]...copy the code...go back to the page element and paste the new!!!

    Get well soon.

  11. That's too bad, Mary. I hope it works out soon.

  12. Sorry to hear about the financing falling through for the house. I hope and pray it works out soon.

    Congratulations to Jordan! I'm so glad he is enjoying high school. Keely is, too. It sure is nice when the grandkids are happy, isn't it?!?!? :-)

    I hope you have recovered from the flu. Congratulations on your weight loss. You are doing great.

  13. How are things... Any hope in selling the house.. I pray that the Father God will send a buyer.. Thinking of you today..
