It’s official. Financing has gone through. We have sold our home and officially bought a new one.
It was a crazy couple weeks of finishing up our house (who would have known that we could finish everything we needed to in less than a week with less than $200?!) and keeping it spotless for six solid days. It was completely exhausting. I had plans to take the kids and go to Portage to stay with my sister for a few days, just to stay out of our house and keep it that much cleaner. Unfortunately the weather had other plans. Lucky for me, my children are very good (and I really do mean it when I say that). Of course I did let them watch an unhealthy amount of tv in an effort to keep them from playing with too many toys, but still. We also ate a very unhealthy amount of not-home-cooked food. Over the last weekend we were out for breakfast, spent a couple hours at the museum, a couple hours at the movie theatre, a couple hours at the mall play place, ate at the food court, McDonald’s, etc, etc, etc. The kids were totally wiped by Sunday night and so was I.
We were hoping for multiple offers on our house but that did not happen. We did get one offer for our asking price and we happily took it- we were so ready to be done with this! I know that God has a reason for everything and I am sure God is putting the right people into this house. They are a young family and I think that will make our neighbors happy. Oh I would feel so terrible if a grumpy bachelor moved in or something . There are enough wierd neighbors around here. Good-bye Pink-Housecoat-Girl and Pants-Always-Riding-Way-Too-Low-Girl. I will not miss either of you at all.
Anyway the buying and selling is over now. Now to start packing!
