5 June 2017

It has been a crazy couple of weeks!  I went to Kansas for work the week before my birthday, and then right after I got back Mr. Brown went out of town for a funeral. We felt that we needed to get the house ready to sell, so the weekend after THAT we hired painters and spent that Saturday, Sunday and Monday (Memorial Day) staycationing out of the house.

We had already made a list of places we wanted to visit one more time before we move, so we checked off Greenfield Village, the rocket park and Bagger Dave's.  (Bobo calls it 'Dagger Days' which I think is much more interesting.)  The painters were still painting on Tuesday so Mr. Brown and the kids met me for Mediterranean food for lunch and we checked that off as well.  It made both me and Mr. Brown feel ill even though it was so delicious when we ate it, so we are probably done with that for good.

We squeezed in family pictures on Tuesday evening (see above).  Which is good because the camera is currently broken.

The carpet guys came on Wednesday, and the photographer on Thursday.  The house was listed on Thursday afternoon, and the realtor scheduled open houses for Saturday and Sunday so we went out of town to visit our friends in Mt. Pleasant.  It was a lovely and relaxing visit for us.  I'm so glad they're moving to Charleston this summer, which isn't TOO far from Orlando so we might be able to see them again.

If you're going to check out the pictures of our house online, look fast, because the realtor came over today and went over the seven offers we received over the weekend!  Happily one of them was a really, really good offer, so we accepted it and we're hoping it works out.  Also we're hoping to get a final offer from Florida and start date soon... moving out on faith here! 

It was a lot of work to get the house ready for pictures and ready to sell, but at least it was only for a couple days.  Accepting the offer means we're off the market and so we don't have to be ready for showings at the drop of a hat.  The kids have been troopers, and Mr. Brown took them to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 since we got everything ready in time.  I feel really good about the decision to sell and really happy with the offer we accepted.  I'm looking forward to what comes next - whatever that is!
