The Ball Has Started Rolling

Please keep us in your prayers through the time coming up for us. We are listing our house this week, it's just too much house and too much moolah and stress for us two. The realtor came to look it over this morning, and she's off doing whatever they do to help us sell.

BLESSINGS: The house has given us the opportunity to realize a dream of building something we had always wanted, the opportunity to entertain with room to spare, and the blessings of the best neighbors we've ever had. But the time has come where a stove, shower and bed are all we want to handle OR need. DH has even admitted that caring for the yard and koi pond looked like chores instead of fun this spring. And it's time to take care of us, something we've neglected for a few years, and get back on track with less stress involved. Trying to run the business is enough for both of us. There are days we look in the mirror and ask, "Who is that?" :)

Where will we end up if it sells? Only God can answer that one. But He has always allowed us a roof. Just asking Him for a teenie roof for just the two of us.

Good luck to the two of you. You are absolutely in my prayers. I hope for a speedy sale. I agree with having too much and not enjoying it all.

Good luck!! It's such a strange time out there right now, I hope you have great success. And don't forget to plant Saint 'whatshisname' in the yard upside down....that's suppose to help ;o)

We are sure hoping for the best for you guys! This is a good step. We love you both!

LOL - I can't remember which Saint it is that's suppose to help.

However, Mr. C and I managed to sell our house a couple of years ago - in a week. (no saints involved) ;o)

It takes some work, but it can be done!!

Good Luck! I hope your home sells quickly. Happy house hunting for a smaller abode.
Hopefully, you can rally your family and friends to help you with the hardest part: sorting through and packing up all the belongings. It can be such exhausting work. Our friends were great to us when we moved into our home.

Good for you! Sometimes it's hard to make decisions like that. But it's good to reevaluate our needs from time to time. :)
