Good Monday morning, blog friends.
♥I cannot even remember a more relaxing weekend around here. In fact, as I formulated this blog post in my mind I was even going to use the word lazy but then thought, "Nah. Relaxing."
So, as evidenced by the photo in my previous post, there's a "for sale" sign in our front yard. Many of you remembered that we thought about selling our house last year but switched gears because, in a nutshell, I wasn't ready at the same time that Doug was ready. Now we are both ready. :o)
We are smack in the middle of a seller's market. There aren't a whole lot of houses for sale right now, so anyone looking to buy is scrambling when one is up for grabs. Our house went on the market last Monday morning. By the end of the day we'd had six showings and received two offers, both over our list price. Tuesday morning we signed papers to initiate the process of someone else owning our house.
Debs14 asked. Well, no we aren't going that far. We plan to stay in the Phoenix metropolitan area - hopefully within a 5-10 mile radius of where we are now. The challenge will be to find a house in this slim market, but the super good news for us is that the buyer of our house has agreed to allow us to rent until we find a place to move. It's exactly what we'd hoped for! Since we plan to buy another fixer-upper, this gives us time to not only look for a new place, but also to be able to make necessary repairs before we actually move our stuff in. So. Awesome!
With a weekend like that, I hardly even mind that it's Monday morning. I feel so grateful for the job I have to go to and the people I might be able to help this week. And the fact that there's a 3-day weekend on the horizon sure doesn't hurt my attitude either.
This morning? There's a new baby being born into our family. ♥
Gratitude is the theme for my yoga mat this morning.
Time to hit it...
