Our house in Denver went on the market today. And not a day too soon if you ask me. We have been preparing to put it on the market for months. It has been an incredible amount of work, much of it done by my mom and dad who attacked the project with pitbull ferocity. We have moved everything out and into storage except for the furniture which we left in there to "stage" the house. Apparently people want to see a house with furniture in it because it gives them a better idea of what it will look like with their stuff in it. Who knew!
Everyone in the family is dealing with this process differently. Joanne is miserable. This was her nest and she has been plucked out of it--it was full of all her favorite things and now all that is in boxes. I feel terrible for her and can't even really relate to how tough this must be. But I know it's gut-wrenching for her. Audrey is glad to be making a clean break. I think the image of finding her mom on the basement floor is something she hasn't been able to shake. Emma is pretty laid back and is just glad to be living someplace that has cable TV. Me? I am just so stoked to have a five minute commute that I can hardly stand it. I can't believe that I used to drive an hour each way to get to work. Now I drive five minutes. Yippee!
Talked to the realtor today and she has already gotten a couple of calls on the house. Cool! Let's get that baby sold!
1. Please pray for peace for Joanne. She is struggling with the loss of the house.
2. Praise! Emma LOVES her new school! I mean LOVES it!
3. Please pray that I will be the parent Audrey needs me to be as we navigate through this tough time.
