So as most of my neighbors have now seen or heard there is a "For Sale" sign in my front yard. It caused a bit of an upset and took people by surprise. Odds are we are NOT I repeat NOT moving any time soon.
Here is the dealio.
In our current house we have 3 bedrooms upstairs (being occupied by the hubby and I and the boys) and 2 downstairs. One in the basement is filled with a treadmill, scrapbook stuff, sewing stuff, basically all our junk that we have no where else to put it since we don't have a full basement. The second bedroom is being occupied by my sister at the moment. We are at max capacity right now and are starting to feel squished as we think of the arrival of a new baby. We have decided to put it up for sale for 3 months is all and just see what happens. We've been looking around and can get twice as much house for pretty much the same payment since interest rates are still so low. 3 months is a very short amount of time to sell a house though, especially in this economy. At the end of 3 months if it hasn't sold, we'll take it down and think about it again some time after the baby is born when things calm down again. I really don't want to be ready to pop or recovering from having had a baby and dealing with moving, thus the 3 month time restraint and the probability that we won't be leaving any time soon.
We weren't going to say anything to anyone (with the exception of family and a few close friends) because at this point we really don't know what is going to happen. I guess we should have realized that putting a big sign in the front yard might tip people off though lol.
We appreciate all the love and well meaning threats of busted out house windows so that the house won't sell but want to reassure you that vandalism is not necessary :)
So that is what is newest in our world. The possibility of another big change. We figure if its meant to work out right now, it will. If now isn't the right time, we'll find a way to make it all work in our current home. I'm feeling pretty zen with either outcome so now we'll just wait and see what happens!
