that buying and selling your home is the most stressful things ever. I remember 9yrs ago when we bought this condo how stressful it was. One thing after another, running around getting things done. Well selling is just as stressful. For me I think it is losing control. We are under contract, but is it set in stone? No! The buyers need to set up a home inspection w/in 10 days. Once that is done, check, closer to moving. Their financing, we were told they were pre-approved and pre-qualified and for a great rate-so hopefully no glitches. Then yesterday, July 2nd, we recieved out taxes that were due on July 1st. The 'city' I live in has had tax issues for yrs, I believe we have the highest or one of the highest mill rates in the state. Well our mill rate went up again-nice-hopefully not causing a glitch. The taxes will be $800 higher than buyers were told-but we just found out too. Besides this is city wide, so I guess any condo would have changed. Because we have less than 30days to move, I wanna start moving stuff pronto, I think we will make the big move (furniture) on Monday 7/28th. I hate the be moving stuff up there and have something happen.
'Country' here we come!!
I can't wait to have you local bloggers over for some refreshments- I haven't entertained since Emily was born!!!
Pictures to come of my circa 1975 kitchen, my in-laws built this house we are moving to, according to my mil the kitchen was fabulous when brand new-not so much now. We can't afford to renovate just yet. So I will have to paint or something....I'll need all your advice and expertise. The toughest part is the cabinets are 'barn wood', I know barn wood-nice. Not this barn wood. A friend of mine just bought a barn wood dining room table-BEAUTIFUL!! My cabinets are like a grey-ish brown and a rough texture. Like if you ripped down and old barn and made your own cabinets. UGH-this is going to be a busy, crazy few months!!
Thank goodness I can blog(vent) away to you ladies!!! Thanks in advance :) Here is a pic of my soon to be house (minus garage/in-law addition) and my front yard. (and that's my sis-in-law with Em 2yrs ago-she was so little)
