So, in my last post I mentioned some changes.
One change, that will hopefully happen very soon, is that we are in the process of selling our house and buying a new one. Yesterday, we finally agreed on numbers, etc. with the seller of the house we want. We went back and forth several times...and finally met in the middle. Only "problem", which is part of the agreement, is that we sell our house before we can close. And we only have 60 days before that agreement ends. So, technically, we have about 45 days to sell our house.
Does that seem crazy??
Well, it is, a little. But I'm banking on faith for this to fall in place perfectly. I'm just not scared, or worried, or nervous. And I'm not always like that. I'm a worrier by nature. My parents are/were worriers, so I learned it well! :) However, there are times in my life when I have this feeling that EVERYTHING is gonna work out. I can't really explain it...but, that's what I'm feeling about this new house. I sure hope I'm right. Because, well, my husband IS freaking out a bit.
Anywho...back to changes...this change is really huge. For me. And my family.
You see...the roof we currently live under, was my parents house. After my mom died, my dad remarried and we all knew he wouldn't want to live in the same house with his new wife. And...for some reason, I just couldn't let the house go. I didn't want anyone but me to paint over the colors she had picked out and painted on these walls. She had finally worked up the courage to paint her house something other than white or off-white and she was so proud of it. I was proud of it. I was proud of her. And she LOVED it. She loved her red kitchen/dining room!
And while this house has been sooo good to us and has "housed" a million memories, it is time to move on. I have a love/hate relationship with this house...and it's time to let go of this piece of my mom. My parents worked hard on this house and have done some beautiful things...and now it's time to let a new family enjoy the fruits of their labor. I've been praying that the perfect family (or single person) will move into this house and be blessed. I want it to the best sitiuation for the new homeowner. I want it to be a relaxing and worry-free transaction.
Speaking of my mom...today would have been her 60th birthday. I can't believe that! Am I really old enough to have a 60 year old mom?! HA! I would have LOTS of black balloons and OVER THE HILL paraphernalia for her! And I would have teased her about being soooo old! I miss her...
(Sorry for the pictureless posts....I'll work on it this week!)
