Everything about 2016 was a disaster. Well, almost everything.
So, we booked the flight and I found a house rental, Casa Koala, right across the street from the house we were interested in buying. I contacted Isaac again. Would he remember me after almost 2 years? I think he did, vaguely. And we were all set. I would arrive in mid-September, about five weeks from the time I first saw the house online. It was the quickest I could get out.
Maybe 2016 was finally starting to swing in our favor!
About two weeks before I was set to fly down, Isaac emailed me. Casa Limonera had sold. Then my dad had another seizure, and everything was in doubt. Maybe it was best to cancel.
Dad recovered pretty quickly from this latest seizure and Angie convinced me to go ahead and go. Make a list of places to see with Isaac and just get away for a bit.
I made a list and sent it to Isaac. It included renovated houses but also quite a few houses that were in need of renovation.

So, now all I had to do was wait. Wait and hope that things wouldn't fall apart further.
