So I haven't blogged in a very long time. Kinda went back and forth if I was even going to keep it up anymore. Honestly, I don't have time between Whit, work and now I'm in a play that opened last weekend. Oh... and HOUSE HUNTING! Yeah that's right. Were we looking to move? Maybe, but not for another couple of years. Did we have our house on the market? Um, nope!
About a month ago a realtor we know in the area emailed Ben asking if we were thinking of selling (we had talked to him before about selling when we thought we were moving out of state) and that he had some people interested in our area, but couldn't afford the $500,000 places available right now. So Ben threw out a number he thought was high and without batting an eye the buyers said "Sure, can we see the place?". A week later I was taking a nap, Ben wakes me and says, "Hey, the Saints are on. And I sold the house." Whaaaa?!
So the past month has been spent looking for a house to move into, inspections, appraisals, mortgage meetings, yadda yadda yadda. We no joke picked out a house in one day, which makes me a little nervous. But since we didn't have a lot of time and this will still not be our forever home, I'll be okay, eventually. I'm really heartbroken about moving out of Franklin and into Spring Hill. I LOVE our neighborhood. It's old, it's pretty, and we're a mile walk from everything. Our new house is in a subdivision. Wah wah wah.
Today I'm off work trying to pack/clean/purge/tackle the garage. Dreaming what I want to change in the new place already and bemoaning how hard it is for me when it's a newer house. Our current home is a 1950's ranch so when in a pickle I just ask if it would go with the character of the house. The new place is less than 10 years old, I have no idea what goes with that! All I know is most of the carpet will be going before we move in and a few of the rooms MUST be painted. Can't wait to show pics of this place soon. Hopefully we close the 28th and move in by Halloween.
