The house has been on the market for almost 2 weeks. We have had 4 showings and last night we received an offer. Despite knowing this is all part of the plan, I am nauseous. This makes it all too real. After discussing the pros and cons of how to counter the offer, we sat down to make a list of what we must accomplish in the next 4-6 weeks, assuming they sign the offer. The list is long.
Sell furniture, mini van, truck, and motorcycle; dental checkups, annual physicals and eye exams; renew and order passports, have a garage sale, buy an RV and truck; sell 2 turtles, a bearded dragon and leopard gecko, get Frodo into the vet for shots; rent a storage shed, pack and sort a TON of clothing, books, kitchen stuff and the garage; withdraw from charter school, arrange for new address and residency, buy a new work computer, plus million other little things I am forgetting, and somewhere in there celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years while still keeping up on my business.
I am not the best at time management; obviously… as I have 101 things to do in the next 4-6 weeks and here I sit, typing my thoughts on my laptop.
