The list of things to do before next week is getting smaller, but some of the tasks on that list are a bit daunting. One of them is to paint the porch. Has anyone seen the weather forecast for this weekend? Wet Wet Wet. The porch has to be painted. It's the first thing you see when you look at the house. Right now the paint is chipping and peeling.
The rest is mostly small cosmetic items that are not hard, just time consuming. I'm chipping away at them today and tomorrow. One of them is to paint the trim of the entire house before the new carpet gets put down on Monday.
Wanna know what one of my bigger worries is about selling this house? I am not prepared to hear criticism about it. I think we should put in the listing "Owner loves her home and has worked hard to make it look like this. Any critiques will be met with a kick in the ass."
Do you know how many times I've heard "If you love your house so much, why are you moving?" in the last few weeks. Maybe people are getting sick of hearing me whine about moving?
Space. It comes down to space. Right now, this house is perfect with a big space for our kids to play and be entertained etc... The one problem with that is that our business is no longer in the house. The business we are both dedicated to making grow so that we can continue to work from home and always be available to our kids.
It's a no brain-er really. I know that. It all goes back to change and my relationship with it.
John keeps saying we need to sell this house before the bubble bursts on this housing market we got really luck with. Can't say I disagree with him. Doesn't make me wish this house would just burp and extra 1000 square feet any less!
He just called from the farm and said he would be home for lunch before leaving for an auction. I immediately made plans to pop a movie in for Alex and Meg so we could do ... um ... grown up things. Things he fell asleep before we could get to last night. But he has plans to hang a cabinet in the laundry room. Shit. Grown up things at lunch time is an awful lot of fun! Maybe if we work real hard at hanging that cabinet?
