In this moment I realize I naively decided to put a for sale sign up in my yard just last month. We decided it was time and of course told ourselves, it will all work out. I know in my heart it will, but in this very moment things are a bit up in the air for us. Our home sale is going through in October, but the house we were under contract on fell through.
Today we walked...
It's very odd to say, we walked on a house that we had mentally moved ourselves into. I was eyeing a new sofa for the living room, we had dinner in the neighborhood brewpup, the girls and I would drive by daily after school pickup, friends came and checked out the house with us, Sj put dibs on her room, we had grandiose plans for a party deck on the oversized garage in the backyard that had gorgeous mountain views, my parent's decided that within a couple of years we'd turn that space into an apartment for them. The schools were perfect, the location was great, and we walked.
There's deal breakers for every situation and we encountered one.
So now we move on. Chin up and embracing the old mantra, it wasn't meant to be, everything happens for a reason. What else can you tell yourself? Oh and universe hear my gentle whispers, send me that kick ass house I've been hoping would magically appear. If I can ask for a little favor, have it be empty because closing in a month would just make my life simply wonderful.
