Buy Our House!!

It is starting to look like the biggest problem with moving is the actual sale of our house. I am still frantically fixing the house up and at the same time trying to get packed and make sure our house is ready to be put on the market.

I have pretty much conceded the fact that we will be making house payments for a few months before this thing sells. Ideally I just want to get out of our mortgage, but if we can get some extra cash for the work we have done on the house, that would be great too.

Last night we actually had two offers on our house. Both were people from church and both were break-even at best offers. One of the offers was actually less than what we paid for the house when we bought it. I am going to talk to our realtor tonight to see what his impression is. I'm hopeful that with the recent changes we made that he can give me a ballpark of what I can expect to sell it for if we put it on the market.

I will be so happy once we are at camp and all this stress is behind us. Our lives are just moving so fast that I don't even feel like I have time to really connect with Jamie and Leah. I spent an hour with them last night watching Lost, but other than that I didn't even see them. I can't wait to spend time with them down by the lake or just walking in the woods. I just need to relax and know that God has a blessing for us in less than a month.

Sounds like you're going through a lot, especially with the time pressure of packing, selling, moving, and settling in. I'll pray for ya today.
