I Wasted $35 on Flowers and Then I Cried

At least I can show you my lovely flowers.

We were scheduled to have a professional photographer come to the house today to get pictures to put on our realtors' website. I went home at lunch and got everything ready. I turned on lights, opened blinds, vacuumed, hid everything in cupboards, even dragged a huge ottoman to the garage.

When I got in the car to go back to school, there was a message from our realtor that the photographer had cancelled all appointments for today because of rain. So I went around and turned off all of the lights and pouted. If only I had brought my phone in the house, I could have spared myself all of that work!

Selling a house is HARD. Especially when you are doing all of this really fantastic work and there are no actual home buyers to see it. None.


I am staying as optimistic as possible. I believe that God has a plan and that it includes some tests, some lessons, some bumps, in order to get to a finish line that includes us moving into a home in our new town that is just right for us. How could we appreciate any of it at all if it were all smooth sailing and super easy?!

The Hubs and I have been talking about moving back to this town, the one we are moving to, since we left it. It's the town where we met. The town where we both attended the small university, where we earned our Bacholor's degrees. It's the town where our kids will attend school. Where I hope we will grow old together.

I'm excited. Sad. Happy. Nervous. Stressed. Everything all at once. Leaving a job that I love. Taking on a job that I've always wanted (full time mom for a year). Trying to stay sane. And tidy.

For a tidy house will sell. At least that's what I keep telling myself!

I am imagining you running behind the kids with a basket picking up everything they drop. I can't imagine how stressful it all is, I think the hiding it all strategy is probably the best!

You are right about staying positive, it is all going to work out just the way it is supposed to.

Don't feel down...really presentation and "staging" really WILL help sell a house. You have to be patient, and just keep on going through the motions. My fingers are so very crossed for you!

Selling a house is tough...but it WILL sell and everything you are doing is going to pay off. Hang in there!!!
