The race is on. It’s mid-way through February and the house isn’t on the market yet. That’s my fault. There are things that need to be done, and they’re getting done, piece by piece. Boxes have been packed, tubs have been filled, and multiple trips have been made to the storage unit. Whew!
Slowly but surely the house is getting into shape. The new light fixtures look great, and the long unused satellite dish has finally been removed, as has the broken screen door. We’ve power washed the exterior, pulled up all the weeds, and washed the windows. Item after the item on my list has been checked off, but the list is long and there are still plenty of items on it. This is where I need to say to myself, “STOP!”
It’s time to put everything away, wash the floor and wipe down the appliances one more time, and list it. Seriously, I could spend forever trying to make it perfect, and it will never be quite the way I want it. We live in it. A potential buyer will just have to deal with it. It’s not messy, it’s not dirty, it’s a nice house. Want to come see?

My kid just announced he is sick of snow, so if you live in a warm part of the country…
Fingers crossed someone falls in love with your house soon!

I am sure it is a daunting task. I have moved many times but from rentals. Wish you the best!

Thanks. A move is tough no matter what. At least that’s been my experience, lol. 🙂

Don’t you just get to a point where you think, “Now why the heck didn’t I do this years ago and live with the new nice changes?” I do! 🙂

Yes, in fact I’m considering replacing the blinds in the bedroom since one just came crashing down on me while I was cleaning it. UGH. Now my wrist and arm hurt. Phooey.
