Life is about to get more complicated or interesting (Depending on my attitude!)

As I am taking my last couple of sips of my second Mountain Dew of the day during my break at work, I am thinking about how busy our life is going to become very soon.

We are going to put our house on the market. We meet with the realtor tonight at 5:30. Prayers are welcome. I’m sure you all know the current state of the economy and the housing market.

But, to be honest, I am dreading the whole “showing the house” process. It’s hard enough to get up at 5:30 (ok…maybe more like 5:45am) each morning and get to work on time after dropping off Ben. Now, add all the prep to make sure that every time we leave, the house is ready to be shown….not looking forward to that one bit! Time to crack out the paper plates and disposable everythings!

I’m hoping that I get a better attitude soon.

By the way, we’re not quite sure when the house will actually go on the market. We have a lot of things left to work on….

hooray the test is over! i remember our freshmen year, i was coming back from a spanish test i had been worried about and i saw you hanging out our window yelling "roomie! it's over!" :)

yes. showing a house sucks. we did it last fall, but it will be over too at some point!

i enjoy reading about your going-overseas process. all of our paperwork has finally been declared "complete" (i think we started like a year ago!) and i just need to get the kids physicals. so now we just get to wait for our invitation to the november conference (which should come in october). hopefully it will come b/c if not... we have a problem! :)

You guys are too funny. You are such a competitor! I always freeze up during tests. Your house is beautiful so don't stress about that. Whatever comes out of this experience you will see God in it.

Just like there is a reason why Abigail is not here yet! There is some purpose or reason God has a holding pattern on her in my belly!
