This is Ashford skipping down our beautiful walkway because he doesn't have to put his toys away any more. (Just kidding, he totally does.) So, the dirty details....we sold for 194,900 and are paying 1.5k of the buyers closing costs after a wee negotiation. We are THRILLED that a family with a daughter about the same age as Ash bought our house. They love the place and I couldn't be happier. Our official closing date is April 25th and because of that, we did go to MN last week to look at houses.
The trip didn't go very well, meaning we didn't find a place to live. Now I am a little stuck because I have two weeks left of work and cannot go look at houses again until after the 11th, unless we drive up this weekend. It's very upsetting to see houses come on the market and be sold in 1 DAY. Yes, that happens. That market is hotter than the mess in our attic. It was especially depressing when we came back to our house and realized how much better it was than anything we looked at. I'm a little stressed, but we're working out a plan for temporary housing. In the meantime, I'm taking lots of photos around the house and hoping to capture every detail, the light, the space, everything. I set my camera on our dresser and pulled out the remote last Sunday morning, with totally fun results!
As you can see, Shaun was not interested in participating. But this is a classic weekend, one parent wrangling the kid while the other desperately tries to sleep in.
I'm so happy I took the time to do this, and I'm trying to find other places around the house to stage little photo shoots to remember moments like this.
I can't believe we only have a few weeks left.
