Well, we made a bold move last weekend by putting an offer on a house and placing our house for sale. Because, you know, we just don’t have enough going on in our lives.
Actually we have been looking at houses for a while, wanting to move closer to town, closer to where our kids are in pre-school, their future grade school, our church, etc. We’ve seen several homes, but nothing quite met the bill. Then early last week I saw a newer listing within our price range and told my husband about it. We called our realtor, walked through it and made an offer. After some back and forth countering, they accepted. We completed the paperwork on our house and the sign went up in the yard Sunday evening. So, my Mother’s Day was spent de-cluttering, pulling weeds and doing other chores to make the house look presentable for showings.
I’m nervous because the purchase of the new house is based on a contingency, so hopefully our house will sell in a timely manner. If you know of anyone looking for a traditional, center-hall Colonial in Louisville, please send them my way!
So, dear blogger friends, if you wouldn’t mind, please say a prayer for us. I bought a St. Joseph statue on Monday and we buried it in the front yard (yes, my Catholic voodoo is tried and true). I’ve been saying a prayer to St. Joe every morning, in hopes that the right buyer comes along. We actually have a showing today, so fingers crossed that good things come of it.
Have a great Wednesday!
P.S. - Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes that you passed along to my son. He had a great day. And one of you asked if he's a little ornery because of the expression on his face. Yes, my son can be quite the pistol. But while he can be mischievious, he can also be the sweetest child. He's constantly telling me that he loves me and when I say I love him, he says "Thank you!"
