Our house had been on the market for 3 weeks and I knew once school started traffic would slow WAY down. I was excited about not keeping the house clean for a few weeks and figured we would find a buyer eventually.
I always try to do a fun back to school dinner on the first day of school. The kids requested homemade pizza, so as I’m in the middle of making dough and preparing toppings I get a phone call. A lady wanted to come see the house and could come in 20 minutes. Luckily Dave was home and he and I ran around crazy getting the house ready. She came and brought her sister. They walked through. Her sister said she loved it. She talked #’s with Dave and they left. 30 minutes later she called and said she wanted to bring an offer.
Just when I thought the showings were going to slow down, we ended up selling on the first day of school!! They are a great family! She loves the house, which makes me feel good, and they will be a perfect addition to the neighborhood.
So, I was excited about that stress being eliminated from our lives, but spent the next 4 days very emotional. I guess I thought I was more open to change than I really am – however, this is a pretty huge change so I think it’s normal and healthy to be unsure, scared, sad, and worried. Of course, I’m also pretty stinking excited!! I love our new house and know it is where our family is supposed to be.
It’s all working out. Moving day is mid-October so we have lots of time (way too much) to get this house packed up and let the adventure begin.
