Case of the Mondays

I hope everyone called their mom on Sunday! I had mine over for a bbq with dad and the rest of the fam.

So, after my last post things kinda shifted. Monday morning Steph and I got up to go look at reception halls. Well the first one we went to, the Mankato Armoury, was a big disappointment. We weren't expecting much going into it, but it failed those expectations. I was thinking it might be like a VFW, just for the National Guard, it wasn't. It was a large gym the guard uses to do drills. The floor was a weird plastic floor with basketball lines on it. I was like "Ummm sir, does this come up?" NOPE. Then we found out that they are only $250 cheaper than a hotel for rental, we have to set up and tear down all the tables and everything the day of. Are you kidding me! On to the next place, Country Inn and Suites. "Ok, you don't have the dates we are thinking about but what else do you have an can you show us around?" Ok, sounds great! You set everything up, tear it all down. We just do some of the decorating (or hire it out) and show up. Wow! Ok, we will be in touch. The third place was very similar we left again with a list of dates.

Then on the drive home I get a call from our realtor. He tells me that there was another offer on the house about 4500 above our offer. That is about 3000 above the cap Steph and I put on what we would offer on the house. Ok, we can't match that. All because we were in Mankato and couldn't sign and fax back the agreement that morning. Oh well. We will find another place, just a Monday full of disappointments.

You just gotta trust that things will work out for the better. Wasn't meant to be.

You'll find the right place for the reception and the right house. Just give it time. :-)

Bummer about the house... you'll find another one that's better though! :) Best of luck with the whole reception hall thing. It's tough work but make sure you do with something you really like! :)

Don't worry about the house.

You'll find the perfect house sooner rather than later.

My freind had to do the house two step 5 or 6 times before they got the perfect house.

Don't worry about the House! you'll find another great place! :)

Good luck on finding a reception hall, and make sure set up and tear down is included... that is just WAY crazy! :)

Ouch. Yep, definitely a "case of the mondays." I'd say just stick Office Space in and laugh a bit. It'll help.

"Hi Borsch. It's me Adulthood. Welcome to the Club."

look at it this way, maybe you are getting the worst of the week out all in one day! a better house that's right for you will come along.

But I'm willing to bet it'll still work out for the best in the end.

Bummer about the house. I guess this just means it wasn't meant to be. Something better will come along the way! :)
