These past few weeks have been totally, utterly insane at our house. We have been working non.stop. on the house in preparation for the realtor coming today. On a positive note, our house is cleaner than it’s been….well, ever.
The number he gave us today was lower than we were both hoping for, but he’s been in the business for 30 years and he told us he wanted to price it aggressively. After initially bawling my eyes out to my husband (after the man left), I’ve realized (since Chris talked me through it, lol), that it is probably the better move for us. We’re staying with my parents until our house sells, and while I love my family, the faster, the better! Extra money would have been nice, but a couple thousand dollars can make the difference between a house selling in 6 months or 2. I am still not 100% happy with the number, but I am at peace with the decision.
It’s the last few days in our house, and I’m definitely starting to get sentimental. We have put our heart and soul into this place over the last two years, and I’m going to miss it. We have literally changed almost every surface in this house. Chris and I have both said before that it basically feels like we built this house, for all the changes we put into it. Anyone who comes to see it always comments on how crazily different it looked on the day we moved in. It was – and always will be – our first home, and the place we brought home our first baby. I think I will probably bawl my eyes out again at closing when we have to hand the keys to the new owners.
Anyway, tonight we are finally taking it easy. We ordered pizza and we are just going to lay around and do nothing and probably watch a bunch of episodes of Seinfeld when Luke goes to bed. The rest of the week will be spent seeing friends, finishing up a few projects, and then my parents will be here this weekend to help us move and prepare to leave on Sunday.
So, other than a giveaway (come back tomorrow!!), I won’t be around the rest of this week.
However, within the next two weeks, you can expect the following posts:- how to get started with clean eating
- healthy fats and misconceptions about them (wow, I sound like a PBS special)
- Luke’s birthday, part 2
- hopefully a whole bunch of house before and afters!
See you on the flip side! ;)
