well, last friday was mitch's last day of work for 9 WEEKS!! how awesome is that? we are beside ourselves with joy! he doesn't start his 8 week sabbatical until july 9th, but he decided to take this week off too! we have lots to do before we leave for our adventure on the 9th. so, while we are extremely excited, we are also a bit concerned that we won't get everything done in time to pull out in the rv.
you see, we are putting our house on the market to sell. i am excited that we won't be here while it's on the market because then i don't have to stress out everyday about keeping the house clean enough to have someone come over at a moments notice to walk through our home. it will be one less thing to add to my already hectic days. we have been meeting with different realtors and hope to have picked one by tuesday. then, it is just a matter of cleaning up and getting a storage unit for some of our stuff and making it look fab-u-lous! the input we've had so far from realtors is that it looks great inside and out , and it will sell (but don't you think they tell that to all of their prospective clients?? hmmm??) it makes us relieved that we don't have to do a total overhaul to get the house show-ready, but we still want to finish a few things before we leave.
it's kind of sad to be selling our first home. i mean, when we moved in we had no children, now we have 3 little girls! we have put soooo much work into making this house our home and we love it! but when we bought it we told ourselves we would live in it for 5 years and we are coming up on 7 years now. it is time! sniff-sniff!
so, if you know anyone that is wanting to buy a beautiful house on a green space (super private) in our area send them our way!! ;-) i had to put in a little plug!!
anyway, we are all very excited to have mitch around for 9 weeks of no work (that's job work, we'll be working around the house for the next week, but after that....relaxation and building memories here we come!!) and all play! we look forward to the 9th of july. woohoo!
