Oh My Goodness!

There is only two months before we want to put our house on the market and the to-do list seems to be getting longer instead of shorter! Since I am at home all day I am trying to chip away at things. However, with a one and a half year old I am mostly limited to her daily nap time to work on projects. Not very practical to try and paint with her running around. It would be a disaster.

After all the miscellaneous projects are finished then I need to go through the house and get all the clutter out. I plan on packing up a lot of stuff that we don't use much and putting it in a storage unit. I want people to be able to see the house, not our stuff! Wish me luck there.

It is all scary and exciting and seems like so much work. Can we do it???

On the other hand buying a new house and getting some options that we don't have in this one, seems very enticing. Also reducing Scott's commute by about 55 minutes is a huge motivator. I would really love to have a bigger kitchen in the next house. I love cooking and continue to grow in my bravery to try new things. Our kitchen is nice, but small and it is hard to have 2 people in there at all.

More square footage would be nice especially if our family grows. At least 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms would be excellent. I also HAVE to have a vegetable garden. So a decent size lot would be in order. Not sure what to do about the garden this year. I guess I will plant one here just in case our selling aspirations take longer than we would like.

Erin is growing and changing and saying new words all the time. One of the pictures is my attempt to interest her in coloring, she was more interested in eating the blue crayon.

Hi Stephanie! We missed you last night- I was hoping to see you. I'm sad you'll be moving from Winona, but I wish you luck with the house buying and selling and the growing family! You've got a lot of exciting changes coming up! Be sure to keep us posted here on the blog.
