Whew! It's finally Friday! I'm thankful! Anyone else??
Welllll, I survived the day of my DH moving boxes, the handyman coming not one day, but two, and the meeting with the real estate agent! I think I have finally had to get to the point of letting go. And guess what? The world didn't come to an end! Thank goodness! lol Actually, the real estate agent suggested that we sell our house for more than we had originally thought! That would be great if we can get a buyer to agree! haha
So today the cleaning people are showing up. They should actually be there right now. Yesterday our real estate agent called and said he sent a lady a picture of the front of our house the other night after meeting with us and she would like to come and look at it this afternoon. Whaaa??? My DH said yes and then tried to retract it by telling the agent the cleaning crew would be there. The agent said that was no big deal, at least the woman would know it was clean! I have never heard of someone wanting to see a house that wasn't already shined up and ready to go! I know I wouldn't want to see a house in the middle of it being cleaned! Maybe I'm just crazy like that! I don't know. I'm praying it goes well though. It would be nice to sell it quickly!
I am really hoping after this whirlwind of a week that tomorrow can be peaceful and relaxing. My DH is planning on playing golf in the morning and then said he would like for us to go out to dinner and a movie and I'm actually looking forward to it! The cat would probably enjoy a rest day from all the strange people in the house as well!
My whole reason for going back to school and getting my Master's as well as the CHES certification was to be able to move somewhere south. Selling the house will put us one step closer to our goal. If it does sell quickly that would be great! Then we could find a place to rent preferably for around 6-8 months and this would allow me to start my job search. The job I currently have will not be around forever. Actually, it will only be around for two more years. We just found out today that this part of the municipal utility will be shut down in May of 2020. Unfortunately, going to work has become somber for many. There are not many jobs in this town that pay what we make here. I am afraid this will impact many people--over 100 to be exact. People will start finding new jobs and leaving in droves, which will put more of a workload on the ones left. I'm praying that my decision to go back to school will help to make me more marketable and find a job a little easier.
But until then, I guess I can just take it one day at a time and continue praying for guidance. Thank you all for listening to me vent about my frustrations and stresses. I need to learn to let go of what I have no control over and just do what I can. A peaceful day is definitely needed!
Everyone have a wonderful weekend and thank you for being the best Sparkfriends EVAH!!! XOXO
