Ever since we got back from our 3 weeks in Verde Valley, we've been trying to decide about our future. So much worry; do we stay, do we go? Do we sell, do we lease? If we lease, what kind of shape will the house be in when we get back? How much will it cost to fix it while we're gone? Is this where we want to end up? Do we really want all the maintenance and upkeep of a house and yard this size? Can we really do what we both want? You know how I can torture myself with unaswered questions!!!
I heard a song not long ago that was like a wake up call for me. Don't know who sings it, or even the name of it. (Did I post about this already?) The words were something like, "Just waiting for our lives to be over", and I don't want to do that.
So, after praying about it, talking to a realtor, praying some more, I woke up yesterday morning feeling great about a decision to sell the house we're in, and hit the road! It feels right. I believe I received my answer. :)
I've spent all day today, cleaning, scrubbing, and taking a toothbrush to the baseboards in the master bedroom. That room and the master bath are immaculate this evening. We're pretty clean people, but after almost 5 years, 2 dogs, 2 birds, 2 people, it's going to take some work. What I remember most about walking into this house for the first time is how open and CLEAN it was! I'm hoping someone else will have the same reaction when I'm through, and want to have this for their very own!
So, I have numerous rooms to continue working on this week, as well as our "work". That means a very busy week indeed.
