"The Time Has Come!"

...the walrus said.

I think I've put it off as long as I can and now that Boots' has let the cat out of the bag on Facebook it's probably time to say something.

We're selling our house.

We hope.

We're working with a really nice family (that we've known of and actually had in mind since we first talked about selling over a year ago) and doing the "pass the paperwork" dance in hopes that our home becomes their home.  Things are going well, but it's one of those things that you're hesitant to talk about until it's set in stone just in case something doesn't work out like you think it might.  Or that's just me.  The thought of being all, "Hey! We're moving!" and then we don't is kinda pllllbbbbtttttt!  I don't like eating crow, but hey! that's what this blog is all about, right?

So here we are...  Nothing is set in stone, we have no idea where we are going to live although we do have a general direction in mind, whether we're going to rent or buy...  Everything is up in the air.  Sometimes uncertainty makes me a little crazy, but I keep telling myself that we are not going to be homeless (ok, we may be homeless, but I know of at least two places we can sleep!) and that this is the next adventure for us.  Because I am excited.  The thought of having a new (to us) house to work on really makes my dreamer kick it into overtime. 

I'm sad too.  We love our neighbors and have made lots of friends at our church so it is going to be hard to leave them and have to get adjusted to a new place with new people all over again.

But I'm excited!  I already said that?

So maybe this is (it probably is) the reason for my silence lately.  I'm sure that as things start happening a little faster I'll probably have more thoughts (and photos) to share.  I want to take "last pictures" of our house so we'll have a nice way of remembering it.
