After two days of waiting (impatiently) and lots of back-and-forth, we finally got a contract on our new house worked out!

We’re all really excited, as the boys saw this house with us on the first day we saw it (which, incidentally, was the house’s first full day on the market). Even Luke, for whom this move has a big impact, since he will be going to a new school next year (he’s getting a post all his own here when I can manage it), is happy. A thought just occurred to me though; it’s possible that they’re happy because finding a house means no more “let’s just drive by this one and see it” or “kids, we’re going to an open house!”

So now comes the really scary part for me: selling our current home. Yikes. We have accumulated a LOT of stuff in the last 6+ years, and while I’ve definitely been working on cleaning things out, anticipating that this time was coming, there is a lot of work to be done between now and listing the house, which will hopefully be soon. Ideally, we’d love to close on our new house and have time for wallpaper stripping (wait until you see one of the rooms!) and possibly a flooring change before we are living there.

Can’t wait to share pictures and our ideas for the house! I’ll get some snapshots when we have our home inspection done in the next couple of weeks.
