Be careful what you wish for...

So as if a new baby didn't keep me busy enough, over the last several months we have been getting our house ready to sell.  With the help of a friend, my fabulous husband, and wonderful looks gorgeous!!

We put it on the market on Friday the 17th and had our first walk-through the next Wednesday.

So, the old adage, "be careful what you wish for, it might come true."  Yah, that's us.  We had an offer in our hand... in the amount of high sales in our neighborhood, Sunday night.  Of course we accepted it.  They want to close July 18.  Wow.

We are trying to relocate to San Diego and thought the house would be the slow part.  No, it's the job.  We "had" a job in February whenever we wanted it, but thanks to Congress, the current administration, and the welfare state, defense spending was cut and the job is "on hold."

We feel so blessed, it is almost surreal, but life just turned into a total whirlwind.  My biggest question right now is, where do we live?  We're not ready to abandon Colorado as we do HAVE a job here, but do we rent for 1 month, 6 months, 3 years?  I have no idea.

We felt so strongly to put our house on the market when we did that I know the Lord has a plan for us...I just wish I had the outline.

Anyone want to buy a piano, it's a good one, and it's for sale!

(why it posted sideways, I really don't know and I don't have time to figure it out.  It stands right-side-up in real life)

That is quite the whirlwind.

wow! um, congrats? haha! you guys will figure it all out, and when things settle down, you'll realize what the outline to the plan was. That's kind of the fun part, right? like figuring out the mystery and seeing how all the pieces fit together. If we had room for a baby grand, we would buy that piano, it's beautiful.

Good luck on figuring our what you will do in the meantime. Let me know when you get to SD, I would love to get together and see you guys sometime! Miss ya, and good luck!

Wow! I can't even imagine trying to get a house ready to sell with a new baby. She must cooperate better than my baby! :) I'm so glad you sold the house fast for a good price, that is awesome. I know everything will work out. Go ahead and rent in Colorado until the job comes through, that is my 2 cents! :)

P.S. I have something I've been meaning to send you. How long will you be at that address?

The house looks great! Can't believe it sold so fast! Renting isn't so bad. It's not ideal, but at least you have the option to leave at any time when the job does open back up...
Things will work out for ya. Hang in there!
You aren't taking your piano with you???
