In the Market?

So, it's official, our home is for sale. We have mixed feelings. I tend to get rather attached to our homes. We have three years of memories and lots of sweat equity poured into this one. It has sheltered us well and we will leave a piece of our hearts behind, not to mention our good friends the Kimmel's live just around the corner.

On the plus side we are looking forward to "stretching out" a bit in our new place. As big as 2400 square feet sounds for a family of 6 it can be a tight squeeze. The home we are currently interested in is over 3,000 square feet, 5 bedrooms 3 and a half baths and in a beautiful new subdivision in a great school district. Did I mention it is not built yet? That's right once our new home is finished I will be the first one to put my butt print in the tub. Bailee will have her own bathroom off her room. Which is great because she always uses ours, according to her Bubba's bathroom......."It stink Mama" I can't blame her, three distracted sharp shooters makes for a big mess. If everything goes smoothly we should be in our new place sometime in the middle of July. There is a guest room so y'all come on, we'd love to have you!
For those of you who may be in the market, click on the realtracs link above and you can see all the specifics and a bunch more pictures. Thanks Tiffany, you win realtor of the year! Steve layed all the hardwood and tile and of course he painted everything.......a couple times (it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind ya know)
Pray for us as we try and sell our place, that I won't crumble under all the stress of trying to keep our house straightened while the "midgets" mess it up right behind me. I do love them so but they are the messiest little people and they tend to leave chaos in their wake. Pray for Steve that he won't lose his mind every time he has to write out another check for closing costs or upgrades or whatever. Moving has lots of little costs that can add up fast.
Hope to see you soon!
