Disappointment sucks

My husband called this afternoon to let me know that the guy who was trying to buy our business had an issue with financing and it is a no go. This is very disappointing. My husband pretty much hates his business (long story about being roped into it by my wonderful in laws) and wants to go back to school to get his degree finished. He has been taking night classes but was really hoping to get into it full time and over with in a year or so. We do have a back up offer on the business which is fantastic. Unfortunately it means more time running the business and no trip to Indiana to see family at Christmas time. I am pretty sad and think the monkeys will be too. We will still go to my parents' house for Christmas, that is great. It has been 2 years since we visited Indiana and I was really looking forward to it. I guess we can always try during my time off after having the baby. I hope this other offer goes through and everything works out. I am ready for the husband to start doing something he likes and not hating most of his day. Any positive thoughts would be much appreciated! I am thankful for the underlying results of this business, he has an immense amount of experience now and it brought us to a place we really enjoy living and raising our children. It has been a rough time though and we are ready to move forward.
I am going to try my best to shake this off and not let it make me sad.

An update on my dad, he broke his leg in 3 places. Two at ankle level and one about 3 inches below the knee. He has to stay in bed on his back until Friday to get the swelling down enough to put it in a cast. My mom has called twice wanting to send him down to me already!!

So sorry about the sale of the business AND your Dad! It is horrible how fragile our parents become. My MIL broke her wrist in two places while my son was visiting her a few months ago. It is also so hard for them to be laid up.

Good luck on the sale and I hope your Dad is up and around soon.
