I have not been avoiding you. I promise.
I have been extremely busy with our NEED LESS PROJECT and getting our house up on the market.
The cleaning up and cleaning out is simply endless and it makes me almost glad to keep my moving every 3 years streak alive! Just imagine the clutter I'd collect if I stayed in one place for too long! Yes, you are right, it's mostly my husband who is the "collector," but I thought I'd try to share blame!
The house is now listed on Craigslist and Alaskalist and I've started a blog to post more information and pictures at 47130autumnroad.blogspot.com. It is coming along and we've had an interested party call inquiring more. They are from California, so not being able to come by is a hindrance to them and thus requires me to send more. I'm perfectly fine with that! I'm rather excited as a matter of fact! I just wish I didn't have this pesky job thing to go to so I could devote my time to gathering and sending information!! Oh, well. The joys of selling.
We have both been extremely motivated to finish projects and create new ones on our house. It has been fascinating to see how God has been providing funds to do so. I don't imagine He's doing this to help us live in a home that is nicer. I'm sure it is because He will sell it soon! I doubt He feels any necessity in a stainless dishwasher over a white one, especially since it doesn't even work as well, but He provided it! Our next big project will be to redo the deck and since the snow is beginning to melt, we should be able to kick that off in a week or two, barring any future snow dumps. We still have some tweaking to do on the house and are contemplating putting in new cabinets/counter for the kitchen, but not too sure about that one just yet. I know HGTV recommends it, but if we can sell it without, we will! We'd have to raise our price if we do too much renovation! Shucks!
I just thought I'd give an update on where I've been and where I'll likely be for a short bit. I will try to keep updated! Thanks for all the encouragements!
