selling the house, an update

184:366 book blur

So our house has been on the market now for four months. This seems like forever though really it’s not out of ordinary for my little town. Basically when you live in a tiny town, you’re just waiting for the right buyer to come through the door. We’ve had plenty of showings and nothing but positive feedback. Just for one reason or another (not big enough, they’d have to sell their house, wanted something in the country…), our house hasn’t been the right one for anyone. I’ve been impatient and getting very anxious even though we figured it would be like this.

Last week we had two more showings and both couples seemed pretty interested. I’ll be honest, it kind of scared me. I mean, I’m ready for the house to sell but once it does… Well, then things will change. It’s so darn exciting/scary to move forward with your life. We know this is what we need/want to do but that doesn’t mean it won’t be hard. It definitely doesn’t mean I won’t miss this house. It feels good to know we’ll be starting a new chapter, no longer stagnant. We’re just waiting, waiting, waiting…
