How you too can become the world’s lamest blogger

Put your house on the market.

Seriously, if you were looking for a way to get out of blogging, making dinner, or any other important life plans or obligations, just decide to sell your house. You’ll spend 73 hours a day priming, painting, cleaning, decluttering, planting flowers, making phone calls, and stressing yourself out of your mind.

Thanks for all your great comments and advice on my previous post.  I’m working through my uncertainties, mostly by doing my as-willing-as-I-can-muster-up part and putting the rest in the hands of God.  He usually gets it right.

I will post some before and after pictures later and you’d better oooh-and-aaah over them as if I’d just given birth.  In the meantime, please be patient with me.  The few brain cells I have left are currently being destroyed by paint fumes.

p.s.  The second the house is actually on MLS, I’m packing up my children in the van and driving across the country to my parents’ house.  Keep my house clean enough for showings at any given moment?  *snort*  I’m no fool.

oh, and one more p.s.:   I know I’m being cryptic about the details– Partly because of privacy/safety and partly because some of the details of the potential move are completely contingent upon selling the house.  I don’t want to get ahead of myself yet.  I’ll fill in the blanks more a little later down the road.

  1. Oh, my gosh, I so feel you on this. You saw what happened to my blog last month.

    Don’t worry. We’ll wait.

  2. Oh man! I completely understand. We’re starting similar processes here and I’m discovering that getting ready to move is crazy time consuming.
    Best of luck to you!

  3. Heya girl! Good luck with everything–I’ve never sold a house, but I know it is super stressful. Take time to relax too, ok?

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog…I needed it this morning. 🙂

  4. *snort*

    When we moved, I actually blogged MORE. A combination of procrastination and stress relief.

    I sincerely hope you get the answers you want – and in a timely fashion. ;o)

  5. Oh, Stephanie, I just did what you’re doing. I honestly think that prepping the house was the most exhausting week of my life. Well, except for packing the entire house with a 24-hour notice. That week was pretty awful, too.

    Anyway, with that happy note, good luck to you! (And you’re wise to high-tail it out of there!)

  6. Good luck with the sell. I know it’s stressful. There is NO way my house could stay spotless and the stress would annihilate me. I think you’re smart to high tail it to yur parents.

  7. Good luck on the move, if it is suppose to happen, it will. It is hard to go some where you are not fond of, but it will be ok and the Lord will bless you. Let us know if we can do anything.

  8. I am so curious to know what your plans are…. good luck with everything 🙂 We missed you at the 4th of July celebration in Salina…… really. I was hoping to see you.

  9. “Oooh, I do love a good intrigue.” (Name that movie.) Seriously, good luck to you! Can’t wait to hear the details. And yes, He usually does get it right. 🙂 I’m sure everything will work out for you.

  10. Um, we aren’t moving for A YEAR and are already starting our pre-sell projects. Talk about anxiety, I’m feeling you.

  11. Okay, I’m wishing you what happened to us. @ least part of what happened. We decided to sell & as soon as the house was listed, the kids & I would drive to Ut (from east coast) so that the house could stay clean. The day the house was listed, two families came to look. The first one through the door put an offer on the house that we ended up taking after a couple of negotiations. I so wish that for you!

Please say something. I've said enough. :)
