Exciting and terrifying

IMG_0907

It finally happened. We sold our house.

We’ve been trying to sell since last June. It’s been so long that we had passed the superstitious stage and gone right into despair. When the offer came in, I didn’t actually believe it. I thought we’d die here.

There is one problem though. Our buyers didn’t just want the house, they wanted it pronto. The closing date is May 15. As in three weeks.

In less than 24 hours we went from joy to total panic. Where were we going to live? How does one find a house to move into in less than 21 days?

But do not worry, gentle reader, we did find a house. As luck would have it, the place was empty and worked with our insane schedule. It needs grass, a fence and a few other things before we move in but it’s surrounded by trees and is next to a lake, so we’re delighted.

Now, instead of worrying about selling our house, we can move on to worrying about selling extra things, packing and changing everything from one address to another.

All in less than three weeks.

  1. Congratulations! That’s certainly stressful but also awesome that yours sold and you found one that was available. When the stars align themselves so nicely… it must be a good sign.
    Best of luck with all the packing/moving/unpacking activities.

  2. Congratulations 😀 That is excellent news on both counts. It’s so exciting to have a new house. I’ll look forward to hearing all about it – when the mad stress and panic has died down and you can laugh about it and celebrate. Woo hoo!
