the goings on


Our house is under contract…I’m afraid to use an exclamation point as I kind of feel like I need to hold my breath until the closing next month. 

There is good and bad -- we are losing money on the sale which kind of stings a little but we are able to live here until the kids finish school as we will be renting the house from the new owners for a couple months.  When you weigh out all the good and bad I think we are making out okay.

No more showing of the house.  Hooray!  

It’s my goal to live as “normal” as possible right up until we move to Massachusetts.  It’s hard on the youngest kids as they can’t really remember all the hullabaloo that goes on.  It’s hard to logically explain that everything we own will move with us.


We have been going through all the art supplies and each sunny afternoon finds the sunporch littered with new artwork.



Henry thought fingerpainting was the best thing ever.  He kept giving me that ARE YOU SURE? kind of look.


I call this picture,  “painting concentration with a small booger”. 

That’s the goings on…sewing, painting and boogers.


Thanks for all your comments on my apron giveaway!  Henry picked number  7  which is from Jemm…

Jemm is witty and nice and has a great blog- you should check it out if you haven’t already!

That IS good news. I used to do the math when we sold our last house until it drove me crazy. Did we lose money? Did we break even? What about this, and what about that? You know what - I don't even remember now how it all worked out, but it got us here, and hooray for you. I won't use an exclamation point either, just to be safe.

Henry, oh Henry! Why hast thou forsaken me, oh Henry of the booger nose?!

Jemm said...

Oh, you've got to give Henry a great big hug for me!! Thank you so much--I cannot wait to get it :) It is so pretty!

good news. I wish it were me moving away from the big city. I find myself house shopping every night, looking for something far far away from Baltimore. We are hoping to put our house on the market this time next year.

Have a great week
