Not-So-Mute Monday: We Need To Talk

April 14, 2014

I was going to post more often…but then…

DH said, “We are putting the house on the market March 1st.”

WHAT?! EXCUSE ME?! SURELY I MISUNDERSTOOD YOU! ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND?!

We have been planning to sell our house for quite some time…actually we had planned to stay only 4 years…that was 10 years ago!

The Lord has His own plans and I am willing to step back and let Him lead, so we have been here 13 1/2 years.

We prepped the house, staged the house and had it on the market March 12th. We had a contract on March 14th. The Lord is very good and has a sense of humor. We had no idea where we were going!

Since then, we have made an offer on a piece of property, rented an apartment, made ourselves absolutely insane and pumped the fish pond dry. Our neighbor agreed to take our 20 goldfish since the folks moving in didn’t want them. (I am trying not to judge them…)

It’s been crazy!

And the photos – while grilling hamburgers out back, DH yelled to me, “Look above the pond!” A beautiful Barred Owl had silently flown in to rest in a tree next to the deck above the now-empty goldfish pond.

So, it appears that I will be spearheading the building of our forever home over the next few (and hopefully that is very few!) months.

Guess that means I will be writing, emoting, venting & rejoicing! Not excited yet…waiting to hear if we get the property…
Have a great Monday!
