|I really wanted to see my sold sign.|
We decided to leave a little before 1:00 p.m. because our 4 year old son had virtually given up. He was laying on the bouncy house floors and trying to rest. All the jumping had tuckered him out. So, we packed them back into the car and headed to Barnes and Noble. We still had some time. If we left the bookstore by 1:45 p.m. we would make it in plenty of time for the 2:00 p.m. meet and greet. The model is only 5-7 minutes away from the store.
Then, the time had arrived. We excitedly drove into the model neighborhood and saw very few cars. Whoops. Well, it is only a little before 2:00 p.m. We could just be one of the first families to arrive. So, we unpacked the kids from the car and we reassured them that this is the time that they could meet some kids and families that will be on street. We were so very excited. Then, we were met by the sales representative. She was not our sales representative, but another one. She was very nice and we told her that we were here for the party. She looked at us somewhat awkwardly and said "Well, I think there may still be a few people left in there." [It was 1:54 at that time]. We were perplexed. Bryan said "Are we late? I thought it started at 2." The sales representative said, "Yes, but many people have left". Grrr! Oh, by the way, this was the same sales representative that told us it started at 2 a few days before.
So, we met a few neighbors. A man named Jesse and his wife Lydia were very, very nice. They will live a few houses away from us. We talked about the area, commutes, and how much we were all looking forward to our new homes. There was another woman who was building in another community and another that had just closed on her house on Friday. She was ready to move in immediately and was so happy with how everything had gone. She assured us that it was a process that seems like it takes forever in the beginning stages, but is very quick once it gets started.
Unfortunately, there were no kids there to interact with our children. They sat quietly eating pizza and waiting for the old people to stop talking. So, when we all decided that it was time well spent we packed up the children in the car and headed back for the rental. However, not before we made one extremely important stop.
