You guys. Big, big news! Our house is on the market!!! The ‘For Sale’ sign is up and everything. Go ahead and take a look at all the pretty pictures on the Windermere real estate agency’s website. And then, tell all your friends, okay?
This is a big victory in my world, since my day-to-day life has seemingly been on repeat. Between the Cold From Hell that sucked the life out of me for about two weeks, and the fact that we’ve had two half-finished bathrooms for about the same amount of time, I was starting to feel like we’d never move forward on anything. But the listing is up, the house looks AMAZING and I’m feeling better thanks to an amazing antibiotic known as the “Z Pack.” That all makes the half-finished bathrooms easier to deal with.
What’s up with the bathrooms? Well, there’s a shower enclosure on order (which should have been installed last week), a missing doorknob on one door, a totally nonexistent door on the other bathroom (and a missing door on the master bedroom for pete’s sake), and a general lack of bathroom hardware like towel bars and toilet paper holders. But at least I’m not showering in the spidery basement anymore.
Speaking of spiders, I complained about them to Michael and he immediately called the exterminators! In my book, that was the sweetest thing he could have done. Forget flowers, chocolate and jewelry…call me an exterminator and I’m a happy girl. Thank goodness he did, because you know what I spotted while out in the garage today? A shriveled-looking BLACK WIDOW SPIDER. I was both relieved and horrified at the same time. But as Michael said when I informed him of the news, a dead spider is a good spider. Still, I’m afraid I’ll be seeing that disgusting creature in my dreams.
Okay. So since I’m a big believer in the power of positive thought, if you have a eensie weensie little moment to visualize us getting gobs of offers on our house, I’d appreciate it! I’d love to get it sold and off my mind! I’ve got to make room in my head for more pressing matters, such as what I’m going to name my baby girl.
Yep. We’re still debating that one. How much time do I have left again?
