House news

As I was backing out of my driveway, taking Kenna to swimming lessons, I nearly ran into a real estate agent. This was a Monday morning! My house takes at least a full day to recuperate from the weekend craziness. Anyway, the agent wants to show the house and when I tell him no way can he see the house in the condition it is in, He tells me that they can overlook the mess. I wanted to die. I want to sell my house. I told him I needed an hour--(more like three, but I would take one) to get it show ready after I got home from the pool. I came home and instantly sent kids in different directions to clean. The kitchen was the biggest disaster. I was just wiping down the counter tops, when he called and said. "I know I said we wouldn't come for another half hour, and not to put any pressure on you, can we come now? We have no other houses to look at."
I was not liking this guy.
He showed up and I hadn't even touched my bedroom yet. I ran upstairs, and did a quick hide the mess game and left the house. I then called and complained to hubby about the inconsiderate agent.
Yes, they are the ones that made the offer.
Things are happening so fast that it is a bit overwhelming. After I looked at the paper I signed to accept the offer, In tiny print, was the closing date of.....

????????

wait for it........

Yes, that means our family has less than three weeks to find a place to rent that will let us rent month to month and will accept a big hairy dog! Tom is so confidant that everything will work out. I wish I was. This house thing has turned a normally positive thinking girl into a terrible, horrible, no good very bad pessimist. I really want to believe we will find a place, get moved, and start building in August, but my faith is not very strong right now. My hubby is so cheerful and positive and excited that it can get annoying at times. I'm doing my best to counter his excitement by being anxious, pouty and slightly panicked.

YEA!!!!!! I think that is so funny that it was the realator that you were complaining to me about...classic. I am so excited for you and I can't even imagine getting everything squared away in less than a month! Please please send Mckenna over any time if you need to get things done...I know shes not in the way or anything but Sydney would absolutely love it!

Hooray for you guys. It does sound a little bit crazy though. I wish you all the luck in the world finding what you need!

How fun! Come stay at our house, we will stay in our tent (you get extra blessings for taking in the Bishops family right?) Too bad Tom has to work and be Bishop or you could just go stay at the cabin for a few months while your house is getting built! :) There is always the scout trailor, that would fit a air matress.

That is so crazy how fast it all happened! But it will be well worth all the craziness in the end!

Congrats on selling your house! There is a house for rent behind us. They had dogs there before but don't know many details. I could find out for you if you are interested. Good luck with everything.
