Four Weeks Today

Our house has been on the market for 4 weeks today. The first few weeks were encouraging, but we haven't had a showing or a call from our realtor in 2 weeks. The first couple to look at the house thought it was too big for just the two of them and the second thought our dining room was too small for their large table. The third couple really liked it and even sent our realtor back over to measure rooms but we haven't heard another word. A realtor came by 2 weeks ago to check it out for some out of town clients and she seemed to like it and think it was something they would be interested in but we haven't heard back from her either. Fortunately, keeping the house show worthy hasn't been as hard as I expected. The worst thing right now is that our cooktop is cracked down the middle because the range hood cover fell down on it. Sigh. Nothing like spending $600 to have something like that fixed in this economy.

Ryan is now officially a contact wearer. He's been begging for them for years but freaked out last year when they tried to teach him to put them in. This year, he was ready and he's doing well with them. He has an appointment next Tuesday for a braces consult.

good luck selling your house. We have ours for sale as well and it's taking awhile but we live in a really small town where houses take longer to sell. Maybe we both with have good news one of these days:)

Our house has officially been on the market for 3 weeks and not even a call. YIKES. We are considering renting it out. Just don't know if that is what we want to do or not.

Selling a house is so tiring...hopefully, this will be a quick and painless process for you all.

PS I have "tagged" you...stop by my blog if you want to play along

Our house has been on the market for almost five months and no one has even looked at it in two months! But since we are going into the mission field, I know God has something in store!!!

Where are you wanting to move? I will be praying for all of us!
