So last week I announced that our family was moving and the event that led up the is turn of events. Now the reality of what is happening is setting in and it is making me crazy. It is like a tiny snowball rolling down the side of a mountain. As it gains speed it also gains more snow and becomes this large uncontrollable ball running over everything in its path.
First of all, I have to start off by say that I hate moving. This is not just a common dislike, but a great passion that makes me want to pull out my hair or curl into a ball and hide until it is over. The idea of packing up all out belongings that we have collected over our lifetime together is overwhelming, but the idea of finding a home to fit all that stuff is a mountain that stands as tall as Everest right now.
Yesterday we talked to our realtor to find out what we need to do to get our house ready to be put on the market. I have hopes that it will sell fast and it will be a painless process, but…
There is always a but, isn’t there. I not so worried about selling our house. Most of the houses in our neighborhood have sold within a few days of them being on the market. We just need to find a young family that needs lots of space, and we’ll be fine.
It is finding the perfect home for our family that worries me. The market is tough, and I want to find the perfect house. And we need lots of space. Since our house is so big, we thought about downsizing, but we can’t downsize that much.
Over the years, we have inherited several furniture pieces from family that have been in the family for years. I just want to find enough space to fit everything I want to keep. I more than willing to get rid of everything else.
We’ve looked at a lot of houses and nothing seems to fit yet. I do have hope for one house I saw last week, but Keith still needs to look at it and make a decision. Next week I’ll tell you about some of the houses I’ve looked at.
I do have to admit that looking at houses is fun, but exhausting at the same time. Our realtor has been super helpful and patience. Hopefully, we’ll agree on something soon.
That’s it until next week. I hope you have a great week, and remember it is only as crazy and you want it to be.
