Moving On...

IT'S HAPPENING!! We are officially on the market! Well, its been a week BUT for those of you that have gone through the whole process it is super overwhelming and days feel like months. For those of you who have not been through is a little taste--

Day 1(June 25)- First day on the market; I think I checked the Re/Max website close to 1,000 times that day{1,000 may be pushing it but I bet 100 is RIGHT ON!}.  Finally, after a year of contemplating we took the plunge.  The time felt right and althought the market isn't on our side, lets face it...we are running out of room, QUICK! 

Our house is cute, perfect for a starter home and a couple just starting out or an older couple who doesn't need much room but for a family of six {i include the two dogs because, they are definitely a part of the family}, we are ready for a bigger home.  The kids share a room and although they love it, soon our son will soon be heading into kindergarten and sharing a room with your sister IS JUST NOT COOL anymore.  If he doesn't realize that now, its only a matter of time

Plus, I will be honest....Momma is ready for a bigger closet, his/her sinks and more kitchen space...maybe then I will learn to use all the pots and pans but until then, I will continue to use the excuse that {I can't find anything}.

DAY 4- Have you ever done a diet cleanse?  I haven't BUT, I hear that day 3 and 4 are the worst! haha.  Seriously, I felt like day 4 should have been day 364.  My husband mowed the lawn that night thinking that come day 5 people would notice his nice clean yard and someone would forsure want to buy our house.  --Cute, right??--

Day 6- SOLD! I wish! The listing was put in the Sunday ads, maybe this will help get people interested in our house, so it can become their home.

The last week has been a roller coaster of emotions.  Most people ask us if we have found a new home or if we are looking.  The answer is always this, "No.  We are selling first.  We have looked, fallen in love with the 'perfect house' and watched someone else make it there home." I have never been good at losing something that I love. We will take our chances that when our home sells, our true 'perfect house' will come along.  Until then, we will let it be and let whats meant to be...JUST BE.
