I am fully aware that it’s been a year. I timed it that way actually.
This last year has been a doozy. Crazy. Exhausting. Productive. Frustrating. Amazing.
I’ll just cover the instigator of my time off here though. It was this time last year, that we began our process of selling “that house”. The bane of my existence. What kept me up at night, and crazy by day.
As of Nov. 15th, after three, very VERY long months, we had a sold house.
You would think we would be ready to shout it from the roof tops – party like crazy! Instead, it felt more like a limp to the finish line where we fell over it instead of a victory lap. Our victory lap instead came as a year long recovery. Well, it may actually take a bit longer than that.
The process itself to sell it, was about as pleasant as it was to own it. But the people who helped us were amazing – complete blessings! They got us through it and it’s still kind of not real to us, even a year later.
But the year to follow has been an absolute whirlwind. Seeing so many blessings come after the sale lifting us back up, has been the best part of the whole process. From nearly no money left in the bank account the day of the sale and still needing bills covered – to the money coming in right on time. And money to cover the actual completion of the renovations instead of our east coast money pit. Yes, we’ve finally started. A stove again. Floors going in. Sinks and tiles and faucets that we’ve been without. It’s exhausting work, but it feels so good to finally see progress, and to walk on real floors again.
While this isn’t a long one, it is the beginning of being back. Not totally sane, but back again. With lots of craziness to share. Pictures to post. News to announce. And creatures to show off.
So… thank you for your patience. It paid off. Let the stories begin…
