I say all of that to say that I've been keeping something from you. No, I'm not pregnant, nor am I going to be a contestant on Top Chef. We've put our house on the market!
I'm only a few weeks late in sharing that bit of news but I guess there was a part of me that hoped we'd sell it in a matter of days and then I would tell you about it. So we haven't sold it but we have had quite a few lookers. That first week was full of let downs. We had showing after showing, with not a single offer. I realize that's how this process probably goes but it's all new to me and remember, I'm impatient!
We had our first open house this weekend and our Realtor said we had about 10 people. I even made them homemade chocolate chip cookies and had water bottles out for the taking. Wes made fun of me and said that was surely to seal the deal. Hey, whatever works! At least they know the oven works (:
Now we just sit and wait. Did I mention I'm impatient? Wes has told me countless times to think about something else but really, what else is there?! I know he's right; I'm going to end up with ulcers if I don't give it a rest. So, if you would, say a little prayer for us that we find the perfect buyer who wants to create a houseful of memories just as we have over the last 9 years (oh and that I won't get ulcers from worrying!).
Maybe one of you knows someone or is looking yourself to buy a home in Kentucky. We live on a quiet cul-de-sac, have great neighbors, recently finished our basement (copied from an episode of Divine Design on HGTV), and are in a great school district. Spread the word, if you know someone who might be interested, feel free to shoot me an email (de5181 (at) aol.com)!
Here are a few pictures from our listing.
