If you are friends with me on Facebook or Instagram, than you might already know that we sold our house. It happened way faster than we thought it would and, I must admit, I now wish we had just a little more time! It's very bittersweet. Of course, I am happy to have sold the house and to be done with showings and keeping the house in tip-top shape and constantly having to clean. In fact, it's kind of funny how fast after we got the offer and everything was approved and finalized that the house once again became a mess. Nothing crazy. Just the little messes that come with having small children and toys and books and laundry and unmade beds and everything that I was so good about keeping tidy and put away before. Now, I look around and it once again looks like a series of tiny tornados have spun through each room. At first, it bothered me a little. Going from pristine to untidy takes a bit of adjustment. But I am okay with it now. It's normal life and I like that. Now we have to get ready to move on to the next step in this adventure. I am not sure I am ready, but I had better get there soon. We will be on that plane to California before I know it! But for now, I think I will leave those dirty dishes in the sink and ignore that pile of clean laundry waiting to be folded and go lie in my unmade bed and relax. For now.
