Before, During, and After

FINALLY! We finished the house painting a week ago. It has taken me a week to get the house back in order. The garden was overgrown with weeds. Every room of our home was disheveled.

We met with our realtor last Thursday. She is so nice. Assured us that our home is great, very cute, welcoming, etc. However, the market has us staying here a while longer. Just like a lot of other folks who are not offering foreclosures and short sales. How can we compete with those prices? (Except that our home is in great shape – especially now. We’ve looked at some of the foreclosures and people have left them in ugly disrepair.) In order to sell we would need to list at about $10,000 under what we need to clear. Ho hum. Lessons on contentment, right? I made a decision to not be discouraged and sad. The painting and repairs we did are now for us, instead of someone else.

Unless, of course, you’re interested 😉
