It's nail biting time.

It happened. We made an offer on a house this past Friday. By Saturday the owners countered. We accepted. The blood drained from Richard's face as we filled out the paperwork and promised a purchase price that is kind of staggering to us.

Tomorrow our house hits the market. We have a month to sell and counter any other offer that may come. Yesterday started the month that I will be insufferable to be around.

Do you know what it takes to keep a house show-ready with three kids, a stinky hairy dog and a stinky hairy husband? Nagging. Yelling. Constant cleaning. More nagging. More yelling.

Please hope our place sells fast.

For your family's sake, I sure hope so!!! I'd be the same way.

I know exactly how you feel, except with 4 kids, 2 stinking hairy dogs, a hairy cat and a messy husband. We were under so much pressure to sell our house before the house we wanted was given to someone else. We ended up BEGGING for 2 more days so we could have an open house. And luckily it did sell. I had to keep telling myself, if it is meant to be, it will happen.
P.S. Ovens and clothes dryers are a great place to stash stuff in a hurry.
I will send all my house selling vibes your way! Keep thinking happy thoughts....new house....no more noisy neighbors...no more noisy neighbors....no more noisy neighbors.....

Ovens and clothes dryers are probably a really good place to stash things, but I know that I'd forget to remove said items before starting appliances.

Fortunately, I am not trying to sell my house.

Good luck to you with this.

I hope it doesn't mean you won't be blogging...
