This Old House

Good afternoon blog, welcome to Potty Trainers R Us.

No? Not what you wanted? OK, how about...

Good afternoon blog, welcome to Home Staging Extraordinaires.

Figured it out yet? We've been busy.

The Potty Clock goes off every 20 minutes and when we're not trying to get his buttsy on the little green potty we're touching up paint or packing up stuff for storage or arranging and rearranging our mantle, our shelves, the tops of tables, dressers, nightstands and so on and so on...

All in an effort to get our house to appeal to the right buyer.

The photographer was here this morning which means our house will be on the market by the end of the week. I'm excited, nervous and stressed all at the same time.

What if we have no showings?

What if we have too many showings? How am I going to deal with being out of my home so much with two kids?

What if William pees on the couch and I simultaneously receive a call that a potential buyer would like to see the house in five minutes?

What if doesn't sell for months?

Or even scarier, what if sells right away?

Have we saved up enough money?

What if interest rates continue to rise?

What if we can't find our perfect home in time?

What if we find our perfect home and someone else snatches it up before us?

How the heck am I going to move all of our household belongings while raising two kids; one of which is potty training and another who is nursing every few hours?

These are the questions that pound in my head as I'm lying in bed at night.

But deep down I know we're not the first family to go through this and we're certainly not the last.

I can't control the housing market and I can't control the latest interest rate. But none of that really matters. The situation is such that we're busting at the seams in this tiny house so we forge ahead. We've been planning and saving for this for years. We can do it! And somehow, because we do it all for the good of our family, it all works out in the end.

  1. Are you moving to another city/state...or just a bigger house in your current city? I wish you all the best - I hope your house sells at just the right time and that you find the house of your dreams. :)
