The Week In Review

So as we frantically finished cleaning, purging and packing, Sunday was our open house.  We didn't even have our shoes on before the first people arrived.  So we spent the next couple of hours at the bounce house place, the park and getting groceries.  Pretty good feedback, but no takers.

We had more showings during the week including a repeat, plus some other interest, so we are hopeful there will be some activity soon.  The bright side of being transferred at this time is it is a good time to be selling a house.

I learned a valuable lesson in closing cabinet doors at work this week.  I was on the phone with our lawyer getting a power of attorney taken care of and I was reaching for something out of the cabinet.  Talked to her a few more minutes and hopped up to scan something.  Cracked my head right into the handle of the door.  My work spouse said it was so loud she thought the cabinet fell.  Needless to say, its sore and I felt like a dork.

Murphy's Law has also been hard at work around this house.  It feels like it is revolting against being sold.  So we deal, one day, one dollar at a time.

Easter Party at School was yesterday.  I missed the  hunt but B said Willa was only interested for a couple of minutes before she was done having to pick up eggs.  She still had plenty of sugary goodies so she was happy.  We have been enjoying the day off from work and school today.  Slept in (kinda, I got up to deal with a Murphy happening), getting groceries, and eating fake cupcakes have topped it off.

Weekend will be a busy one as we have to pick Poppy up from the airport, load the U-haul and send off the first round of the move to Missouri.  Our realtor has already said, since we will be busy and he will be out of town we will probably have a lot of calls to show the house.  Fingers crossed one will be "the One."

Happy Easter All!
