I'm finding it hard to find things to blog about this week. I am feeling so in limbo with the house situation. I am torn between just wanting to stay here, or wanting to go. We had one prospect look at our house on Friday night, and said he was going to put an offer in on Monday. We were excited, but tried not to get our hopes up as it wasn't a guarantee. It's a good thing we didn't get our hopes up as the prospect was not able to get his financing from the bank. Sigh. So we are back to square one, and I am starting to worry since we haven't had any other interest in the house. We scheduled an open house for May 1st, the date of my sister's bridal shower, so that should be a fabuolously fun week of getting everything for the bridal shower ready, along with getting the house ready for an open house. Really looking forward to that. Not.

I know we are lucky to have the house we have, and I keep reminding myself that no one at our age, with our income, has a perfect dream home. I'm really just hoping that if we don't get anymore interest we throw in the towel and decide to stay here. I hate this waiting game, and I hate the fact that we won't be starting any projects around the actual house while it's up for sale. Another reason I wish we could just decide if we are staying or going. I am afraid we are going to waste time twiddling our thumbs waiting on buyers that are never going to come.

When this whole ordeal started, a looong 2 weeks ago, I took some time and asked God to make sure, that whatever happens, it's where we are supposed to be. I have faith that whatever is meant to be, is what will become. But most days I am not patient enough to have a solid faith that He has a plan for us. Most days I just want to know one way or another. I want to be able to think of one house or another as our home. I guess I need to start praying for patience instead.

As a side note, our master bedroom is coming along a little bit at a time. Still looking for some perfect accents to finish the room off, and perhaps some retail therapy is just what I need to get my mind off the house-situation.


  1. Hang in there! Hey if you decide to stay at least you'll have an INCREDIBLY IMMACULATE house to start awesome projects in! :)

  2. I know two weeks feels like a long time right now, but in our area, houses usually take months to sell. Is it your husband that wants to move? Because it doesn't sound like your heart is really in it.

    But just try to think about the long term. A few weeks, or even months of misery is worth it if you end up with a "closer to perfect" house in the end, right?
