Good Grief, Charlie Brown!

I realize I've not posted our pics from the Seattle portion of our trip, or updated about my leg. Sorry! Maggie and I got home on Saturday, 7/18, and it's been a whirlwind ever since. Tyler decided we should try to sell our house to make the jump to Williamson County (for our non-Nashville friends, that means better schools for Maggie). Our house has gone up enough - and Nashville has not been hit by the real estate boom or bust - and houses in Williamson County have depressed a little bit making them within our reach. So I am in the middle of cleaning out every last nook and cranny, clearing out clutter, staging, etc. There are also some small home-repair items I am working on, which although are small are taking me forever!

I think just moving would be easier than paring down and staging, but we'll sell our house quicker if it isn't packed to the brim. On a related note, I am continually embarrassed by the quantity of THINGS we have in our possession. We've stuffed a garbage can and brought a huge load to Goodwill and it's barely made a dent. It really makes me think about what all we buy and bring into the house.

Did I write this post?? I hear ya, sister! Cleaning, packing, staging... it's no piece of cake. And where DID all of this stuff come from? We're doing it too.

Melissa, this is exciting! But, I know a bit overwhelming. I'll be praying for you as you try to get everything ready, and I would also love to help with Maggie, or whatever else I can.

You're moving? Wow...I had no idea. That's exciting. If you need help, let me know! Have fun packing!

You'll have to take pictures once it is staged!
