The world might think we're nuts, because we are selling the house we've worked so hard on over the past 9ish years! It's been a whirlwind of a week, and now that the house is ON the market, I'm totally freaking out!
I took the girls out to dinner last night, and we had a really pleasant time together. We talked about walking to the many parks in the new neighborhood, talked about all the kids that will be everywhere around us, and we talked about how we will decorate the new house. My oldest was very excited about the outlet mall being so close (this is hilarious to me, as she's only been there a few times - but I don't go to the mall, so I guess this IS where it's at for her). I started to get really excited about the possibilities that lie ahead.
Then I woke up this morning, and panicked. My beautiful yard, what will I do without that?! I was outside filling the chickens water bucket and the birds were out in FULL force, singing delightful songs. The birds (and yard) are what sold me on our house 9 years ago. I still absolutely love our yard and the thought of leaving it still brings me to tears. Change is hard.
But, God has a plan, right?
