My House On Mill Pond
It was 6 years ago. My finances were in order. I been looking for 5-6 months for my first house. I wanted it all; good neighbors, big fence (for the Chihuahua), downstairs party room, walk in closet, master bathroom suite, fireplace, big kitchen, living and sitting rooms. It was winter and signed the agreement papers. I was so happy I found it my perfect home. Five bedroom and two car garage with everything I wanted. Later I drove to the second house (on Mill Pond) the one I rejected because it didn’t have a fence and was $10,000 more but with the same layout only a couple of blocks away. I looked at the house and thought to myself I’m so glad I didn’t get this one. I got such a good bargain with mine. Days went by and I got call for my agent. Anna she said “I sorry but the owners are taking the house off the market due to pluming issues”. We still have the house on Mill Pond she said. I was tired of looking and signed the papers. About a month later my son and I moved in. It was our first real place. My son had a room of own in fact he had two rooms. I furnished the whole house with new furniture and things I collected throughout my travels. Friends would come and hang out on the weekends. Things would come to an end because of my foolish decisions. As I write now I still have the keys. It hasn’t gone through the sheriff’s sale yet. Some of my belongings are still there. It’s very hard to go back. I miss it dearly. I know there are others going through the same. My heart goes out to every one of them. Hopefully everyone will rebuild sooner than later.
