We have an OFFER!

not a very good offer but an offer none the less. We are negotiating and hopefully we can walk away without have to pay a great deal of money at closing.

This is hard - extremely hard. We have a great house and could easily have it paid off in less than 15 years. We could stay here but we want more for the family. We want the kids to be close to good schools, close to our work, and not have to commute with us.

We are selling our house for less than we paid for it and we have put in a great deal of money, time, and love into this home.

How much is it worth to get us closer to work and the kids more time with their parents?

I am not patient

We may (fingers crossed) have an offer on our house. Of course we were told they were going to write an offer over a week ago but needed to get their pre-approval letter in first. So in this market who goes house shopping without a pre-approval letter. They saw the house for the first time the day after Thanksgiving. They saw it the second time the week before Christmas. SO what have we learned in the last month - apparently nothing.

It is all a waiting game and I am stuck in the middle of it.

I am ready to be done with this commute. I am ready to find a new house. I am ready to start packing and thinking about moving.

Owen is currently sleeping in front of his brothers room. We have found him sleeping in various areas throughout the house in the past couple of days. He misses his routine being off for break but hopefully with get back into the swing of things next week when school starts again. I am enjoying my time off with the little ones but the house looks like a tornado hit it. My new years resolution is to blog more.

I really don't care if people are reading but it is a way for me to express myself and take a few moment to myself.

Hope everyone had a great holiday season and a happy new year
