SO...for quite some time now, J and I have contemplated moving. I wrote a post about it here. Then we decided to work on the current home and stay put for a few years. I wrote a post about it here. Then we finished up some major projects and were happy with our space. I wrote a post about it here.
Broken record much?
Well folks, it seems we have come full circle, because this can currently be seen in my front yard.
Forgive me if blogging suddenly took a back seat.
The never-ending debate about finding the perfect time to move seems to have come to its conclusion. The housing market is making its way back. Home prices and interest rates are on the rise, so we think maybe we should just get while the gettin' is good. You know, Carpe Diem and all.
I convinced J to just come drive through a new neighborhood with me, and perhaps get out of the car to tour the model home. And before I knew it, we were writing a check to hold a lot, a lot on which we plan to build the beautiful new home of our dreams.
Then we got home, and reality set in. We crunched numbers. Then we crunched some more. Then we called in the Realtor. And finally, we kept crunching. We came to the conclusion that we would give this thing a whirl.
Then madness really set in. Painting, power washing, and carpet cleaning are all happening in the next few days. We spent every ounce of the weekend getting the house put together and show-ready. I will continue to spend every moment of the next few days continuing on this mission (then, God help me, will spend every moment keeping it show-ready until it sells- please pray that happens quickly!).
Fingers crossed that all goes well, and that we will be settling into our forever home in the near future!
