on the move

It feels like it's been years since I last blogged.

In reality, it's been a week, which is still a long time for me. We spent the holiday weekend on a much-needed mini vacation to visit Joey's sister in Tennessee. It was K's first time on an airplane, and she did quite well. We only had one minor tantrum at the end of the return flight, and I think it was due to the air pressure. Otherwise, she slept for most of the trip up and back.

Our return home was marked with exhaustion and anticipation: Four days before we left on our trip, we put the house on the market.

This might come as a surprise to some, but it's something that we've been discussing for months now. We purchased our townhouse at the bottom of the market, as a foreclosure, and we've watched as home prices have shot up in our area over the last 3.5 years since we moved in. They reached a new high in the last month or two, and we figured we may as well try to strike while the iron is hot. It's been on the market for a week now, and we've had three inquiries and one showing, so we're getting steady interest. We'll see how the next several weeks play out.

Regardless, I think there are big things coming this way.

I felt like it had been forever since I'd last blogged, too, to find it had been a week, which for me is a long time.

Very interested to hear what big plans lie ahead.

Hope you sell quickly and for over asking!

Happy you had a good trip to TN! Good luck on the house showing/selling. Hopefully you can make a nice profit on it.

I just wrote an ebook called "Shooting Blanks: a husbands perspective on missing the mark and dealing with infertility" and was wondering if you would be interested in reviewing it for your blog or if you would like me to write a guest post. Either way I'd be happy to send you a free copy to read.

Thanks!
