Frustrations

I've decided I don't like selling my home. People just say things that I can't even change. Say, on Friday, the buyer said the rooms were too boxy. Another said they didn't like the floor plan and the street parking. As if I could just change how the rooms are and where people park? Here, let me pull money out of the sky to change it to what YOU want, will that make you want to buy my house any more? I didn't think so. Why even come to my home and say those things? Just say the home doesn't work for you and leave it at that. Or give feedback that I can actually do that is cost efficiant? Say, I can update the cabinets, new handles and a sanding down/repainting of them. Maybe new counters, I can do that. But to say my house is too old or that you don't like my neighborhood just irritates me. I don't want to know that because I can't FIX that!!

The next home we purchase will hopefully be the home we live in till we are old and gray. This is too stressful. I want to throw my hands up.

Hey there

I am looking forward to the summer. I know this summer is a major transition one for us but it also means a slowing down of schedules. I have knee surgery in June, Schuyler comes home for a bit the next month, hopefully, and God willing, a move to NE the following month. Sounds like a lot but really, to me, all that happens with a spirit of Grace. I am getting used to the idea of moving soon.

Glad all the "junk" is out of my house and now it's nice in here. The way it should be. The way I want it to be. All nice and fresh. I'll be happy to sell it to anyone. Any takers? Ha ha ha ha ha. My house has been on the market for only a week and already 4 people have come to look at it. Outstanding I think! No takers yet but soon.

I'm all over the place today but, really, I am loving this. I'm loving God working in my life. The changes and the lessons He teaches me. How things can change in my life and He is always the same. Constant. Plus the nice hot weather is wonderful too.

I may not like sweating but seriously, I could use it. And my kids love playing in the sprinkler! This weather is so nice. Such a nice change after the winter! Anyways. . .
Next week is a big week for us, so pray that it goes well. I can't really tell you what till afterwards though I am busting at the seams to say on my oh so public blog! This week I hope to have a new garbage disposal and a new storm door. And today I may do some grass planting in the back yard depending on how my knee is feeling later.
