so they say. While I completely agree with this old adage, I have to say that when you leave a house that has been your HOME for while, it doesn't make it any easier. I typically don't post about the real "life" stuff - not that it doesn't matter, but really who wants to read about all that mundane crap. Well, I sort of feel like I have been a little MIA recently, with no fun sewing or baking stuff, and this is why.
So, the gist of what has been going on is that my husband got laid off. It happens, right. In fact, his entire job site was closed, so I know for a fact there are over 100 families in our general location that are going through a similar hardship. We were left with some "grown-up" decisions that had to be made very quickly, and that is what we have done. What that means to us is that we put our house up for sale. Yes, it is just a house, and things could be worse, but it is my dream house. I know, whhaaaa... cry me a river, right? It is sad, but we are all good, and we are all together, and we are putting ourselves in a situation for us to fight another day. I am planning a quilt as a memory for my dream home, and you never know - who says I can't have another dream?
Our open house is today, so I am getting ready to leave so that the potential buyers can have at it... letting the fun begin!
Here are a couple of shots of the house from the realtor:
Wrap around porch... I have got to find a new place to photography my quilts.
part of my dream kitchen, where the cookie magic happens!
My kitchen island, where more cookie magic (decorating) takes place!
Normal sewing and cookie pictures will commence shortly - looking forward to that! :)
Thanks for letting me vent a little.
