Because Life Wasn't Crazy Enough For Us...

We finally decided (after agonizing and agonizing) to put our house up for sale. Of course, this meant we had a lot of little projects to finally finish:

  • finish the hardwood floors and trim in the office and master bathroom;
  • paint the trim;
  • paint the master bathroom;
  • paint one of the walls in our garage;
  • put new wood chips out in the front yard;
  • clean out the garage;
  • take a few loads of stuff to the dump;
  • clean the house and keep it clean for showings;
  • have a Realtor come over to evaluate the house;
  • have the realtor come over to photograph the house;
  • AND start the process of looking for a home!
Here are some photos from our MLS listing (& proof that our house can actually be clean and neat when we have no kids home to mess it up!):






Are we crazy or what?!?

I was in the middle of writing this post this morning when my friend Diana and her daughter Sophia came over to play. So I took a little break. Since then, we've already got two showings booked for today and a realtor who is ready to put an offer in today. Whoa! In some ways I was really hoping this process would take a little while, so that I had time to wrap my mind around it and so that I could stay in this house a while longer. But in some ways, I hope this process goes quickly because it is hard to show a home AND live in it with three children three-years-old and younger. I'm just going to have to trust that things happen for a reason and whether it takes a while or goes quickly - that it's the way it's supposed to be. Deep breaths...in and out...in and out...

Way easier when they sell quickly, because when they drag on for 6 months,and you have to make sure beds are made, breakfast dishes are done etc, before you leave in the morning just in case someone calls when you are at work and they want to show it.Better get boxes and start packing, stuff yur not using, number your boxes and label whats in them!!!! That way, you can clean out cabinets and closets and do it one box at a time. instead of waiting til the last minute.... 5 moves in 10 years, I've learned alot!
