Slow Showing....

When you begin the process of downsizing, and put your house on the market, you are suppose to be excited about showing the house and anxiously awaiting the first offer. I haven't been excited one bit since the sign went in the ground. I am by nature a very loving and thankful person, but I hate this whole process. I don't want to live in this big house anymore and I don't want to move to a smaller one. I just want to be left the heck alone. Preacher's Wife got the house ready to show almost immediately. What I didn't realize was that every hour of the day you have to keep the house ready to show. I feel like the KGB moved in. Everywhere I turn, or sit, or stand I feel there are hundreds of eyes on me. She is not the vocal kind of gal who says a lot, she just shakes her head meaning I am to remain seated or keep moving. It seems to be about sitting and waiting and not touching anything. This past week has been slow going or shall I say slow showing. It has been rainy and cold and no one seems interested in a house. But none the less the house has had to remain ready to show. If I had hair, I would pull it out.

I love this. When the right person comes along your house will sell even if your socks are peeking out from under your bed. Everyone feels this way. Hopefully your house will sell before the " I don't care what it looks like mode" sets in.

Try doing this with 5 children all under the age of 12, homeschooling, and stuff bursting out the seams. We had a garage sale a few years before we sold our little house and I got rid of things I regret now. It was either get rid of stuff or get rid of some of the kids. I don't regret keeping the kids, but I sure regret some of the stuff I didn't keep. I hated the calls of "Can we show your house? We're pulling into the driveway right now!" This isn't encouraging you at all is it??
