Open House this Sunday

We're having another Open House this Sunday.  Hopefully we'll get lots of people through here, and they'll all want the house and start a bidding war to get it.  Wouldn't that be nice?

All it really takes is one to come along and offer us the right amount, so we can pay the realtor fees, pay off the mortgage, and have the money we need to make a down payment on a new house.  We don't even have to find that new house right away, but we'll be able to call the movers montreal (or Milwaukee) and get moved out of here as soon as the new owners want to get moved in.  The cats and I can live with Jeffrey in the apartment, and we can put everything else in storage until we find the right place.  Not the ideal situation, but it would work - and I really would enjoy living with my husband again.

In the meantime, I need to be sure the house is in perfect order by the weekend.  It's really not bad, since we had that showing last week.  I just have to keep it looking that way.  Why is that so hard, considering I'm the only one living here?  I'm looking forward to having a definite buyer so I can start concentrating on packing and getting ready to move, instead of always just trying to keep everything looking good.

And when the house looks good, I'm reminded of how much I like this house.  It's not so easy to let go, but I keep reminding myself that it will be good for someone else to get to enjoy it, too - and we'll be able to move on, together, and find a new house to enjoy.
