Two Houses Isn't Double the Fun

Remember the old commercial for Doublemint Gum?? Sing along with me, "Double your pleasure, double your fun--with Doublemint, Doublemint, Doublemint Gum."

Well, having two houses isn't like that. It's just double the work. Please pray for us. We know the rightful owner of our former home is out there, but we'd like that person to step up now and purchase their new home.

If you didn't know, we moved late spring/early summer to a new home (still here in town). We know it's the right decision for us and our children for the long-term. It's the short term stuff that bogs me down. Who knew the housing market would take such a dramatic downturn? So, our former house is waiting. We put new carpeting into it on Tuesday and so I spent over an hour vaccuuming the carpet fuzzies up yesterday. We also repainted the kitchen to pure white so I spent another hour and a half with touch up/clean up.

Sean had to get out of work early and go finish putting down the new tile in the hall bath. We lived with carpet in there but wouldn't do that to somebody else. All of this in preparation for a 7pm showing. A family is moving from out of town. The wife was in town yesterday and had narrowed her list down (on the internet) and our former home was one she really wanted to see. So we negotiated with their agent to push back the showing as late as possible in order to give us time to clean up and finish the flooring. (We had told our agent to push all showings back until this morning or later so we'd have until bedtime Wed. to finish everything up.) However, when somebody wants in RIGHT NOW, you have to do your best.

So we are prayerfully optimistic that our buyers are coming with an offer for us Right Now! In Jesus' Name!
