House Hunting Part 1

Hello gentle reader(s):

(warning: there are lots of numbers in this post - there's your notice Mom.)

So here's a quick update since the last post, which i realize was over a month ago.

We've decided it is time to get a bigger home. With an almost 5 month old baby, a 3 year old boy, a 5 year old 90 lb dog and all the junk Elizabeth and I have accumulated, something has got to give. And that something is our 1951 ranch style 3 bed 1 bath, 950 sq. ft. abode.

Long Story short, we found an awesome house - we love it and it feels like home. We made a good offer which was accepted by the seller. He wrote up a contract and emailed it to me. Within the hour of us seeing the contract he was calling saying that another buyer had offered him full price if he would sign a contract that night, which he did. Sad Day!

Basically it feels like someone shoplifting out of your cart while you're in line at the checkout.

So we've got our current house on the market, and are getting it prepped to receive showings. Hope it goes well and that it sells fast. Just not too fast so that we can have time to find the next place that we love. STAY TUNED!
