Not anymore. We found out today that they really did close on the property with the other buyer. They sold it to them for less than we were offering. Go figure.
I was much happier living in denial. A fresh wave of sadness came over me today as the news sunk in at a new level. I know I will get over it, but it hurts right now.
I guess the next order of business is to put my house back together. I need to unpack the boxes and put them in the attic until next time. Sigh.
