OK, I’m now in the full throws of stress with the old house. I just want it up and sold and off my plate. My husband has been working like a dog to keep it on track and has an incredible contractor who has literally lived at our house to get stuff done. We’re ALMOST there. We’re actually so close that I can taste it, actually taste it… we’re just not THERE quite yet.

In the last 5 weeks we’ve redone our kitchen, renovated 2 bathrooms, renovated 1/2 the basement, painted 4 rooms and renovated my old office. All things we’ve wanted to do for years, but just never got around to it because we were “busy!” It’s amazing what you can fit into your life when you need to do it!

We spent the entire weekend cleaning and prepping this home for sale. Some family will be moving into a place we loved to the moon and back for 12 years. I pray it goes to a wonderful family (and quick!). It was fun (when they weren’t complaining) having the kids help this weekend. We needed the extra 4 sets of hands to clean, throw things out and help with yard work! We kept trying to tell them that this is a family move, so ALL hands on deck!

Like I said above, we’re ALMOST there… I captured a movie showing the state we’re in and what we’ve got left! Just trying to stay positive and think pixie dust and unicorns!
