The House Is Listed!

After six weeks of non-stop work, we finally have the house ready to sell, or as ready as it it going to get. The survey is supposed to be done on our new place this week and the sellers offered us a no-cost lease which we signed this week. So, things are finally beginning to happen.

I'm sorry I haven't been blogging, but we've been on a breakneck schedule trying to get it all done. And of course, since no good deed goes unpunished, a ceiling fan light quit working after a power outage this week. Word to the wise, don't ever buy a ceiling fan with a remote control. This is the second one in a year where the receiver quit working. But it's not the worst thing that could happen, so we'll replace it and move on.

We have sold stuff, given stuff away, thrown LOTS of stuff away, and burned our precious (or former precious) wood scrap stash. Those of you who quilt can probably relate if you've ever had to give up your entire stash of fabric. Now, we're down to the weird-shape-won't-go-in-a-box stuff. What do you do with a five foot wrought iron candelabra?

Friends and family on facebook want us to post pictures as we build our barndominium. I don't want to annoy other friends on facebook with an endless parade of pictures: here's the land, here it is again, here's the fence, etc. One suggestion was to start a blog, which would be a great idea except I don't have time for this one, much less two of them. However, now that we are finally winding down on the home improvement front, it is a possibility. If it happens, I'll post it here too.

To those who are still checking on me after such a long absence, thank you, and I hope to visit your blogs again soon. Now, to bed "to sleep, perchance to dream." Tomorrow, I am chauffeur. The cat goes to the vet, and mother-in-law to the eye doctor.

Well, I hope the sale of your home will go smoothly and I look forward to reading about the next phase of your life's journey. I hope you will start a blog, complete with pictures.

Love, hugs & prayers for you both ~ FlowerLady

So this is what you've been up to. I'm tired just reading this post. Moving is very tiring work.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺

So glad to hear you have made headway. I'm curious, will Buddy be able to go with you?

Good luck with your sale and new place... A photo now and then would be great!

Good Luck with your sale and new place. I love to hear how it is going and pictures as you go. When we built I did a blog for friends and family, since none were in the area. It was also good for me to keep track of what was done and when. I used a link of the bathroom completion for Price-Pfister to show when our faucet was bought, as we had an issue and it was under warranty. They wanted a receipt, which I couldn't find, but they accepted the link, as it was dated and showed the faucet going in.

Good Luck again.

Getting ready to put the house on the market has to be one of the most exhausting processes there is. Glad you got to that point. Hope you get a chance to slow down a bit now.
