Getting Used to the New Reality

Our house has been on the market for three days now, and Harry and I are working to get used to our new way of life!



This past weekend, we had a pretty busy Saturday. My sister and her husband came by Saturday morning and dropped off the kids.


IMG_3177We had a fun day – they enjoyed using our computers, and we went to the playground for a while. We had originally planned to take a trip to a zoo in MA, but the weather didn’t really cooperate, so we decided to stay closer to home.





Once the kids went home, we decided to watch a pay per view movie that was on sale – Star Trek! It was the one that came out in 2009 and was the prequel to the other original movies. It was an enjoyable evening.

Then on Sunday, Harry and I decided to go out to breakfast. We haven’t done that in quite a while, so we enjoyed that. And then…we hung out…watched some tv…did a little laundry…listed a couple last items on freecycle….it was a laid back day.

What a strange weekend. We have forgotten what it is like to have days off from work without pages of to do lists hanging over our heads. We both felt like we should be doing more, doing something! But we will get used to it. In love

Our realtor just stopped by…she’s had an online inquiry and has a couple buyers that she is trying to get in touch with, so stuff is happening. We just have to get used to our new reality…waiting patiently!!


  1. It's such a WONDERFUL feeling to finally have everything crossed off the "To Do" list. Enjoy it!

  2. Now you'll have to get the fiver ready. Actually it's probably already ready! I remember those days..wondering if this showing is the one..

  3. That sounds hopeful. Maybe a sale is right around the corner.

  4. just be patient..the right buyer is out there!!!
