The Packing Nightmare

By 10:08 AM , , ,

What. A. Nightmare.

With just a few short weeks left in the home we have been renting the past year we have begun the dreaded activity of packing up all our belongings. I am simply amazed by all the "stuff" we have accumulated in one year of marriage. 

On a more uplifting note we put our first ever offer in on a home on Monday. It is a gorgeous home complete with a huge kitchen, large master bedroom/bathroom (plus three other bedrooms), jetted tub, and large backyard. We are really hoping we get it but the odds may not be in our favor (ignore the Hunger Games reference...I just finished reading the first book and it is on my mind) because the home was under foreclosure and was just listed on the market last Friday. We put our offer in Monday (as in the first day you could put an offer in since it was listed on Friday and the other two days were a weekend). Problem is at least four other offers were also put in on Monday so it is a "highest and best" scenario. No counters. So we'll see. In the meantime we wait. I am so anxious to find out whether or not we are home owners!

  1. Just wait until you have been married 13+ years and have 3 kids! We are getting ready to move and I dread it!

    1. I am very thankful we do not have kids right now as we move. My husband and I have both acknowledged that it is hard enough packing up all of our stuff. I can't imagine what it would be like with kids. Best of luck to you in your move!

  2. Best of luck with your move and I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get the house. Thanks for joining the Open House Party.
