Pending...

What a whirlwind the last few days have been. Since listing the house, we have had 10 showings and have canceled several others. It's has been a little crazy. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday we left home and basically did not return until later that day. I did not see any point in going home to mess things up. An offer came in on Thursday evening, but we continued to show it until we reached an agreement with the offer. So it's official, our house is sale pending. But it is not over. We are currently in the middle of negotiations for a bigger house to move into. We are waiting to hear back from them. We don't know exactly where to go next if these negotiations fall through. The inspection for our current house is scheduled for next week. Who knows what might appear with this 1935 house.

Really all we can do it pray that we are making wise decisions through out this whole process. Andrew and I keep reminding each other that God is in control, but it's hard not to be a little stressed and worried.

A friend of mine, ends her blog posts with a Gratitude list. Since life seems a little uncertain, today is a good day to be reminded of my blessings:
1. My family, no matter where I live, they will be there with me
2. Resilient children - they have spent several day spent away from home with little complaining.
3. City parks, the library, and Riemann Gardens - great places to hang out when realtors are invading our home.
4. My bed - At the end of the day, I am tired. My bed feels so cozy.
5. Our Realtor, Michelle, She has been a good source of advice and patient with our questions.
6. God's providential hand - "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him"

    I don't think there is anything more stressful then buying a house,selling a house. Good luck I hope everything goes smoothly.
