The past few years have been a challenging waiting game.

- Wait for the court process to play out so we can finally have time with the kid. (2013 - 2015)
- Wait to save money for a house. (2013 - present)
- Pay court costs $$$, and wait even longer to save money for down payment on a house. (2015 - 2016)
- Get the kid, but wait for the attorneys/court process to continue to play out so we can do things like have family vacation. (2016 - present)
- Get a new job in a different city, and wait in traffic 3+ hours a day. (2016 - present)
- Wait to save more money for a house, because we no longer qualify for first-time home buyer assistance programs. (2016 - present)
- The actual waiting game of home buying. Apply for loan (wait for approval). Put offers on houses (wait for response). Put more offers on houses (wait for response). Put offer on house, get it accepted, wait for inspections/repairs/appraisal/loan.
