Let’s catch up

So big news around these parts – McMania is moving!  Not on the internet, but IRL.

The McHusband and I put an offer in on a house and it was accepted!  We’ve had the house inspected and it checks out, no major issues.  The McHusband has also talked to the HOA about building a detached garage, and they have given us an official unofficial okay to move forward with that project.

We are supposed to close July 31st.  But guess what we have to do first?  Sell our house!  We just listed it this week – Monday to be exact – and we’ve already had four showings with two more scheduled for today.  Supposedly the buyers from one of the showings from yesterday were going to submit an offer but as of 10 pm Wednesday night, we haven’t gotten it.

The new house is maybe 10 minutes from where we are now, but it’s more “in town” than our current house.  It’s about 500 SF bigger PLUS it has has a walk-up unfinished attic.  Can I get a hallelujah for all that storage?!

The lot is the same size as we have now, still has lots of trees, and it comes with a playground. 

Plus, there’s a screened-in porch for us to enjoy!

It needs some updating – painting the trim in the kitchen and den and replacing the slate floors with hardwoods – and we hope to tackle those things before moving it.  Or, rather, enlist the help of professional tacklers who will wrap up these updates before we start living there.

Having our house on the market is tough.  I don’t normally make my bed every day and it’s stressful leaving the house perfect every morning when we leave for work.  But the way the showings are going, we’re hopeful that this process won’t drag out too long.

Anyway, that’s why things have been so quiet around here.  We’ve been working hard around the house in addition to trying to live the rest of our lives, and I’m beat at the end of the day.

Do me a favor and keep your fingers crossed for us!
