Have You Ever............

Tried to sell a house with 2 kids (not to mention 2 dogs and 2 cats) living in it? Yeah, well it is not easy. In fact it just plain sucks. We have so much shit STUFF. So much. So much stuff that when they are not watching I'm throwing away random happy meal toys, or small toys with pieces missing. The house is clean.....even the toy room, but the hard part is KEEPING it that way. Getting the kids to actually put their crap away when they get it out vs just leaving stuff all over the play room. Making beds every morning.....which makes me late for work! I've never really been one for making beds every morning to be honest. What is the point? We are just going to mess it up again with all that mad sex we have every single day



While I have been trying to organize and clean stuff Joe has been busting his butt doing the "manly stuff". Painting, putting in new faucets in the bathrooms (goodbye 1980's) shampooing the carpet, ect. He cusses an awful lot while doing home improvement (or putting things together that require one of those little wrench things). He is also guaranteed to say each of the following phrases...."Sonofabitch" and "This doesn't make any sense"



We have had 3 showings this first week it has been up. Today starts week 2. I'm trying very hard not to be excited about the house we want to build and where we want to build it because until we sell our house we cant do anything. I'm not one for patience. Shocker I know.



I just want it to sell and sell fast so I can go live in an apartment for 6 months with said 2 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I mean who doesn't want to do THAT?



Wish us luck! Do I even have anyone left in bloggy land to WISH me luck? I know, I'm a slacker....

Sounds pretty crazy! Hope it goes quickly for you - in this economy, things go far too slow!

Janna Bee

This sounds so familiar to me, although we decided not to try this year and wait until next year instead, because there is too much to do and not enough time. Keep us updated, I hope you sell fast- there is nothing pleasant about making beds every day- yuck!

Tricia McWhorter

Yeah, good luck with the keeping-it-clean-with-kids-so-you-can-show-it circus. Been there and it ain't no fun!

Tooj

You have people left....especially those of us who have slacked ourselves. :)

I wish we were at a point where we could put money into the house so that we could turn around, sell it, live in an apartment, and then pick out or build the house we want. BUT...our moolah is currently going to daycare. And that's it. Sucking us dry.

I wish you MUCHO LUCK.

Amy

sending you some house selling vibes!

and ps - i'm a bigger bloggy slacker than you. i got nothing except a wicked case of writers block. or laziness. same diff.
